Florence + the Machine played a short but incredibly intimate and beautiful set for Spotify listeners in the back lot of a warehouse in Greenpoint with a gorgeous view of the New York City skyline and the setting sun. The wind picked up and a few raindrops fell near the end, which made for a dramatic finish that had us dancing without a care. An amazing day with old friends and new, and Florence! 💜
Sunday was a lovely evening for a show and a few lucky Spotify Premium users got a heads-up that Florence and the Machine were going to play a surprise show at the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse. From Brooklyn Vegan:
Florence + the Machine releases her anticipated new album High As Hope this Friday (6/29), and ahead of its release she played a special, intimate NYC show last night (6/24). The show, dubbed “From Your Flowers Grow,” was announced via an email sent to Spotify Premium users who have streamed Florence many times, and the location was kept secret. It turned out that the show was in a lot behind the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse. They threw down some sod to make it look like a lawn in front of the stage, and Florence was surrounded on stage by flowers. It was indeed very intimate, with fans — including three of the Fab Five from the Queer Eye reboot — just a few feet away from Florence and her band (they’ll be much further away on her arena tour later this year). It also got even more intimate when Florence went into the crowd, as she’s been known to do.
