Psychedelic Pop Magicians THE FLAMING LIPS Caused Massive Screams Of Joy In AMSTERDAM…

THE FLAMING LIPS – Melkweg, Amsterdam, The Netherlands – 11 November 2018

Early 2017 Oklahoma‘s psychedelic pop orchestra THE FLAMING LIPS blew my and many others’ heads off in Antwerp, Belgium with their sensational and spectacular phantasy show – full review right here. Yesterday the impressive ‘all you need is love‘ symphonic magicians did it again at the fabulous and utterly cosy 1500-cap Melkweg in rainy Amsterdam.

Although it was, visually and aurally, a similar performance as last year, my experience this time was totally overwhelming as I witnessed the whole extravaganza from the very front-line and also the cutting impact on your adrenalin’s flow of whatever happened anywhere at anytime last night was so direct and intense because of the intimate structure of this warmly brilliant small-sized venue. Encouraged constantly by the tireless Wayne Coyne, the incomparable and highly emotional Maestro of The Lips Spectacle the raving crowd screamed of joy for the whole mind-boggling journey. You really had to be there, in the heat of the moment, to fully feel the unstoppable stream of ecstasy. Hail to The Flaming Lips. Thanks, again, for 2 hours of mesmerizing magic! I’m still on a cloud while writing.

Here are some pictures from last night’s fireworks
