Florence Welch performs barefoot on NME/Radio 1 stage
Florence And The Machine attracted an enormous crowd to their show on the NME/Radio 1 stage at T In The Park this evening (July 9).
Sporting a sheer ivory dress, gold high-waisted hotpants and towering gold stilletos, singer Florence Welch added a verse of Coldplay’s ‘The Scientist’ to her set before launching into her rapturously-received version of ‘You’ve Got The Love’.
During ‘Between Two Lungs’, Welch played conductor to the crowd’s applause, leading different sections of the audience through orchestrated clapping sessions using a drum stick as her baton. After a rather more softly-sung ‘Drumming Song’, she removed her stilettos to play the rest of the set barefoot, climbing up speakers and beating the drummer’s kit before playing the song she contributed to the soundtrack of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse film, ‘Heavy In Your Arms’.
She ended the set with usual set-closer ‘Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)’, to enormous applause.
Florence And The Machine played:
‘My Boy Builds Coffins’
‘Heavy In Your Arms’
‘You’ve Got The Love’
‘Dog Days Are Over’
‘Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)’
