Leider nur in Wackelcam-Quali, aber bei nicht weniger als 8 Bowie-Tracks von den Lips mach’ ich da mal ne Ausnahme: „Last night the Flaming Lips rocked Belly Up, Aspen with the first of two special concerts honoring the late, great David Bowie. […] Space Oddity, Ziggy Stardust, Fame, Golden Years and Ashes to Ashes were all Lips live debuts. Two other songs were played for the first time in over 20 years: The Man Who Sold the World (last played 1993) and Five Years (last 1991).“
Vom Rolling Stone:
In addition to the eight-song tribute, at Saturday night's show, Coyne spoke to the audience about Bowie's impact on the band. The singer talked about Bowie's rumored health problems over the last decade – rumors that inspired the Flaming Lips song "Is David Bowie Dying?" – and how he always hoped Bowie would show up to a Lips concert.
"We were in Tazmania when we heard that [Bowie] actually died and it was, and it still is, a strange, strange, sad shock," Coyne said. "It still seems unbelievable that he was actually a real man. I think that's what the motherfucker is. He was just a man. I think it doesn't do him justice when people think he's from outer space. He was a human."
