Grammy Award-winners Florence and the Machine and her stellar band took the Outside Stage at Coachella around 9:45 Sunday night, with a massive crowd ready to sing along with Florence Welch’s soaring vocals.
Or at least attempt to match her words.
Wearing a dark blue leotard and a cape to match, Welch was a vision. Descending from behind a screen, Welch launched into “Only If For a Night” from her latest release, Ceremonials.
Welch then gracefully wailed her way through several songs from Ceremonials, with “What the Water Gave Me,” “Shake It Off” and their incredible closer “No Light, No Light” taking center stage.
