An Oklahoma band isn't looking to burst anyone's bubble, with its return to live concerts.
Flaming Lips have just held a concert with the entire audience social distancing inside individual plastic bubbles.
Oklahoman journalist Nathan Poppe was there, and says it was like being inside a giant latex glove.
He told Mike Hosking the bubbles start out flat, you crawl in, then they pump it up with a leaf blower.
"It's tricky to hear someone talking to you outside the bubble, but clapping or talking inside the bubble is very loud."
