The Flaming Lips at Nathan Phillips Square for Panamania - Concert Pictures
While I've only seen The Flaming Lips twice, their concerts are now embedded in my mind as must-see events. My introduction to the live band at Riot Fest last year was a musical and photographic landmark. I knew that I wanted to be there for their free show for Panamania - the Arts & Culture Program of the Pan Am Games - in front of Toronto City Hall at Nathan Phillips Square.
The band's fans were out in force, covered in silver and gathered up front for the event. Lots of other folks were out, too, either to check out the band, or the Panamania events in general, or to see the fireworks, or to make sure they got a selfie in front of our lovely Toronto sign.
Wayne Coyne was loving the fact that the event was in such a great spot in the centre of our city. He encouraged everyone to get involved, wanting the entire city centre to hear our chants of "Love!"
We certainly got another fantastic Flaming Lips extravaganza. What a great show!
Check out some of my personal favourite tunes from their setlist.
