‘A cathartic and euphoric outbreak of dance fever. Florence Welch proves she is no false prophet by commanding the masses during the resumption of her injury-interrupted UK and Ireland tour.’ ★★★★★ NME
‘Ethereal, majestic, and hauntingly brilliant.’ ★★★★★ York Vision UK
‘A masterful display of dance, light, and song... Her emphatic delivery means not a single note goes unheard or unappreciated. And that is exactly what a Florence + The Machine concert is: a celebration. The crowd is filled with people wearing flower crowns, flowy clothing, and elaborate makeup. Yes, people are crying, but it seems to be cathartic as if to commemorate some sort of recovery. As songs transition from weeping, emotional ballads to upbeat, punchy sing-alongs, there is a rollercoaster outpour of emotion from both Welch and the crowd.” ★★★★★ The Boar UK
‘A triumphant south London homecoming’ ★★★★★ The Times UK
