Florence and the Machine is always a great gig and last Saturday’s show at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield was no exception. As you’d expect it was a packed house and there was no shortage of takers in the pit either although we didn’t actually make it into the pit straight away. Our Flo likes to do a pre-gig walk-through, saying hi to some of her fans before she makes her way centre-stage via a set of stairs.
Once up there though, the theatrical performance kicks in, which always makes for some amazingly etherial pictures.
I love that combination of music and drama – the big voice, the energy are just breathtaking really. But she’s still so connected to the audience. At one point someone chucked her a garland of flowers and she happily picked it up and wore it for a bit. In short, a brilliant night and a privilege to be there…albeit for just the three songs….more’s the pity 🙁 I don’t know what the tickets cost but whatever – Florence gets my 5 star highly recommended rating..and I don’t often dish those out….
