Watch This Awesome Footage Of Florence + The Machine Performing In A Lightning Storm

Stormy weather over Chicago this weekend didn’t seem to bother Florence + The Machine during their headline set at Lollapalooza. She sang about ‘Various Storms & Saints’ on this year’s ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’ so in many ways it’s difficult to imagine a more appropriate atmosphere for a tempestuous Flo set than one punctuated by celestial rumbling, and that’s what the Grant Park crowd got. Earlier in the day, the festival’s attendees had been forced to evacuate after safety concerns over approaching stormy weather, leaving fans wondering if Welch would make the stage at all. The gates opened again 90 minutes after that evacuation, meaning Florence was able to rattle through nine songs before being cut short with a scheduled 30 minutes left due to safety concerns. The footage is pretty impressive – check out ‘Dog Days Are Over’ and ‘Cosmic Love’ below:
