The Hot Press Newsdesk, 29 Jun 2012



The Flaming Lips took the title from Jay-Z by performing eight gigs throughout multiple cities as part of the O Music Awards.

The record attempt kicked off in Memphis, Tennessee on Wednesday and finished up in New Orleans with only 20 minutes to spare.

Jay-Z previously held the record after performing seven shows in multiple cities back in 2006.

Frontman Wayne Coyne took to twitter to celebrate the win, tweeting "Got it motherfuckers!!!!!!" along with a picture of himself with the record certificate. You can see the tweet here.
