Florence + the Machine set to get big, blue and beautiful at the Amway Center


  • Tom Beard
Fairy tale-sounding tracks with sinister undertones, combined with the soft alt presence of flower crowns, provide a realm in which Florence Welch flourishes. The vocalist and her accompanying Machine have grown since their 2009 debut, but their lyrical and overall essence remains the same: one of opposing forces but also one of light and power. If this consistency is any indication, their show at the Amway will prove to be no different. Create your own assortment of gardenias and roses to place on your head and take in the recent creation that is How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful for a night full of Grammy-nominated treats.
