The Flaming Lips have announced plans to try and break Jay-Z's record for the most shows in separate cities in one day. The rapper currently holds the Guinness Book record for playing seven shows in seven cities within 24 hours back in 2006.
Speaking with NME.com, frontman Wayne Coyne said they'll shoot for eight shows on June 27:
"I don't remember if I was asked or if I volunteered . . . But, I've accepted the job of, not DRIVING, but commandeering the Magical Mystery Merry Prankster bus," he explained.
"I've accepted the attempt at breaking the world record of performing eight shows in 24 hours. And I've explained to the music freaks at MTV, VH1 and CMT that I am not a host . . . But, I always liked the way Jerry Lewis would get all sweaty toward the end of his yearly telethon . . . To play and sing Flaming Lips songs at eight in the morning . . . Well, I'm open to new experiences . . ."
