The second night of Florence + The Machine’s first major tour since 2010 intensified an audience with spellbinding soulful classics from Lungs and her new album Ceremonials. The performance was held at the Bournemouth International Centre on March 4th 2012.
The crowd of almost 4,000 capacity were captivated by the enchanting performance by Florence who perfected every song from start to end, the whole experience was emotionally mesmerising.
The band included three backing singers, Isabella; (otherwise known as “The Machine”) on the keyboard and the notorious harp melodies which aligned her vocals and set alive the magical rock and soul anthems that took the top of the charts in 2010.
Florence Welch emerged in a gothic black peacock cape, designed by Alex Noble which she later whisked off to play her newly released song, Shake It Out, followed by Dog Days, revealing a tight patchwork sheer and velvet sequin cat suit.
Miss Welch spoke to the audience in her timid voice; “I always feel a bit nervous when I get to this point in the show because I’m wearing a catsuit.”
But she didn’t seem nervous at all, as she continued to swoop the stage with the songs Strangeness, Lungs, and Seven Devils, flaunting the catsuit, dancing from one side to the next.
She charmed the crowd with her soulful voice, ending with her brilliant cover of Candi Staton’s You Got The Love and finally, Rabbit Heart.
She emerged for her encore after leaving an eager audience for five minutes, to perform her latest sing No light, No light and Never let me go.
The singer continues her tour tomorrow at the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena.
