'Forgetful' Florence And The Machine thrill despite illness
The Ting Tings performed to a packed-out KOKO in London last night (July 9) as part of the iTunes Live festival.
The group got the crowd singing and dancing along to almost every track at the gig, especially their recent Number One single ‘That’s Not My Name’.
Beginning the set with ‘We Walk’, which kicked off with drummer Jules De Martino alone onstage playing guitar and drums, singer and guitarist Katie White came onstage to mass applause.
One of the most popular songs of the night was ‘Shut Up And Let Me Go’, currently soundtracking an iTunes advert.
The Ting Tings played:
‘Keep Your Head’
‘Shut Up And Let Me Go’
‘Be The One’
‘That’s Not My Name’
‘We Started Nothing’
Support came from Florence And The Machine, who overcame illness to perform.
At one point singer Florence Welch forgot the words to her most popular song ‘Kiss With A Fist’ and stopped the band, declaring that the group should be called Forgetful Florence And The Machine instead.
Joined by a guitarist, drummer, keyboardist and harpist, Welch continually danced and twirled around the stage, often hitting a floor tom next to her mic stand and throwing the drumstick into the crowd.
iTunes Live continues at the London venue throughout the month of July.
