The Flaming Lips - The Flaming Lips Appeal For Help Finding Stolen Props

Subscribe to Flaming Lips alerts

The Flaming Lips are urging fans to help frontman Wayne Coyne track down his signature oversized laser hands after the stage props were stolen at a festival in Australia on Friday (04Jan13).

The rocker uses the giant props during the band's live gigs so he can shoot laser beams into the crowd but they disappeared after a performance at the Southbound Festival in Busselton, Western Australia.

The musicians took to their page to appeal for information and posted a photo of the giant hands in action, adding, "F**k!!!!!! Someone stole laser hands!!! Please please please!! At South Bound Festival (sic)!!! F**k!! Help us!!!"

Organisers of the festival have also joined the hunt for the band's props, offering four Vip tickets to next year's (14) event to anyone who can return them.

A post on the festival's official page reads, "Please help us and The Flaming Lips out - someone stole their amazing giant laser hands and both we and the Lips desperately want them back.

"We're offering 4 x Vip tickets to Southbound 2014 to the person to gives them back. And any info would be incredibly welcomed!! We've heard whispers from the campsite, so someone knows about it!"
