The South London singer saves the day, filling for Foo Fighters during the first Pyramid Stage headline slot at Glastonbury. Here’s how it went down…
Florence + The Machine stepped in for Foo Fighters on the Pyramid and utterly killed it.
Frontwoman Florence Welch showed no signs of the foot injury she sustained at Coachella Festival in California in April, performing barefoot.
Welch covered Foo Fighters’ ‘Times Like These’ as a tribute to the band, who had to pull out after Grohl broke his leg onstage in Sweden earlier this month.
A leaping Florence, who performed songs from all of her three albums.
At the end of her set, Florence whipped off her shirt and dashed around the stage in her bra, effectively streaking at her own gig.
Florence told the crowd that she didn’t have time to book a choir to help her out, so enlisted the audience as backing singers on an impassioned ‘Shake It Out’.
Florence made a few friends during the gig, going down into the crowd and taking a floral headpiece off a fellow redheaded fan.
As the set ended, Florence took her shirt off and flung it around her head, showing no signs of her recent broken foot. The show was her first ever Glastonbury headline set – here’s to many more.
