Pontius Helps Set Guiness World Record With The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips embarked on an ambitious project this week with an aim on breaking the Guinness World Record of most concerts played in multiple cities during a 24-hour period.

The Flaming Lips enlisted a corps of openers, as well, tabbing Grimes, Neon Indian, Gary Clark Jr., Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, and Givers.

The group also brought along Chris Pontius of Jackass fame to provide entertainment during the trip.

The Flaming Lips booked eight shows that took place June 27 and 28 in Memphis, Clarksdale, Oxford, Jackson, Hattiesburg, Biloxi, Baton Rouge and New Orleans in conjunction with the O Music Awards.

To prepare for the trip, Pontius stopped by the Gretsch Artist Showroom to pick up a guitar, which can be seen in the picture below.
