We wouldn't expect Florence + The Machine
and Atlantic City to have much in common beyond their love of sequins, but after seeing Flo' shake it out on stage at the Borgata this past weekend, we stand corrected.
Not only was the impressive yet intimate casino stage an awesome setting for her emotive performance, but the A.C. crowd was just as cool and dedicated as any other, hanging on every note and begging for an encore (she obliged).
And what better way for Florence to end the American leg of her tour than by twirling dramatically across the stage in a sparkly black cape over a floor-length ball gown
... barefoot? Of course we were mesmerized by her performance-art-meets-opera-meets-rock-meets-dream-sequence set and have all the up-close pics you'll need to feel like you were there, too. Click through, play your favorite Florence tune, and fall in (Cosmic) Love.
