American rock band The Flaming Lips brought their latest tour to Norwich on Monday night and fans were not disappointed.

Concert goers could only expect the unexpected as Wayne Coyne and co took to the stage at The University of East Anglia’s Nick Rayns LCR on June 26.

From start to finish the show was one big party, with streamers, giant mushrooms, inflatable creatures, rainbows and a light-up unicorn which the lead singer rode around the room as he sang the group’s new song, There Should Be Unicorns.

If that wasn’t enough, Coyne also tried his hand at crowd zorbing, going out into the audience inside a large transparent plastic orb.

Concert goers have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the psychedelic gig.

Emily Burrage said: “Great night last night at University of East Anglia watching Flaming Lips. First time seeing them and they didn’t disappoint.”

Similarly Alan Brookland Tweeted: “Flaming Lips were awesome in Norwich tonight.”
