The incident followed a full festival evacuation earlier in the day
Florence And The Machine‘s festival-closing headline set at Lollapalooza was cut short on Sunday night (August 2) due to bad weather.
The festival took place over the weekend in Chicago’s Grant Park. Earlier in the day, the festival’s attendees had been forced to evacuate after safety concerns over approaching stormy weather. However, the gates opened again 90 minutes after that evacuation.
Welch and her band played nine songs in total during their set, with a scheduled 30 minutes left when they were forced to leave the stage.
The set ended with ‘What Kind Of Man’ and ‘Dog Days Are Over’, with Welch proceeding to remove her shirt before entering the crowd. Watch footage below.
Florence + The Machine played the following songs:
‘What The Water Gave Me’
‘Ship To Wreck’
‘Shake It Out’
‘Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)’
‘What Kind Of Man’
‘Dog Days Are Over’
Earlier in the summer, Florence + The Machine replaced Foo Fighters as Glastonbury headliners. The US group’s frontman Dave Grohl has since said that he “cried like a fucking baby” watching Welch covering his band’s ‘Times Like These’.
