I set off yesterday with my friend Rachel to go and see the one and only Florence & The Machine!!!!!
I have to say it was amazing! She honestly has one of theee best voices I have ever heard! And she's even better live!
On the road we were greeted with this gorgeous sight...
Auckland was definitely pulling out all the stops to greet us!
Once we got to the show we had to endure one of the most boring opening bands I have ever seen...
Blood Orange opened for Florence and turned out to be just one guy and his computer. Apologies if you like them but argh, I almost fell asleep!
But it gave us an opportunity to stalk the crowds
We managed to spot our friend before the lights went down, she went on to get on someone shoulders, take her shirt of and get Florence's attention. She got to give the pianist a kiss, and get a drumstick that Miss Florence herself had kissed. How cool is that?!
And as for Florence... WOW. Just wow. I managed to get a couple of ok photos, but we were too far away and I gave up and enjoyed the show without it.
It was after the show that things started to go downhill...
We had to pay our parking ticket and the lines were ridiculous. We ended up being there for around 40 minutes just waiting. Then on the drive home we came across a detour on the motorway which took us in a crazy direction through all these small districts, we were just hoping we didn't get lost!
But we made it in one piece, back home at around 2am...
A fantastic night!
Who have you guys seen in concert?
