Did You Know?


The eyeballs have been retired. There have been three sets over the years: the originals, the new ones made in the 90s and the performance ones used for the Wormwood tour, and all the tours after. One of the performance eyes was auctioned off on Ebay. See more »


For public appearances and concerts, the four Residents appear in creative costumes, most frequently three eyeball masks with top hats and one black skull mask.
