Florence and the Machine Deer Lake Park Vancouver

Category: Set ListsEyeliah @ 10:47 am

I had the pleasure of being taken to see Florence and the Machine this summer at an outdoor venue in Vancouver.  The bus line up to get there was miles long (not literally) and we actually pulled up as the first song Only if for a Night was playing, it was a good kick of adrenaline to be part of 50 people running to the venue!  Florence was radiant on stage wearing a floor length flowing sea blue gown with a fan perfectly positioned to blow her hair and dress out behind her.  Florence was not as I expected, running back and forth across the stage to get the crowd jumping and dancing around, who knew she was so high energy?  She had injured her vocal cords and this was their first show back since so she wasn’t hitting all the high notes, she left that to her background singer for the b sides so she’d have the strength to belt it out on released tracks like Dog Days and Shake It Out.  The moment of the night was Florence posed dramatically at the back of the stage taking achingly long to gracefully bring the microphone to her lips to begin to sing the final song.
