Florence + The Machine Bares Soul (and Bra) at Voodoo 2015

Florence + The Machine Bares Soul (and Bra) at Voodoo 2015

By the time Florence Welch tore off her blouse and skipped barefoot into the adoring crowd at the Voodoo Music + Art Experience’s Altar stage, she had yet again reiterated why her powerful, playful, dramatic performances continue to be festival gold.

Florence + The Machine’s headlining set on Friday (Oct. 30) jibed perfectly with Halloween eve in New Orleans. In a skull-and-stitches makeup straight out of The Nightmare Before Christmas and a satiny pink suit, Welch showcased her soaring, soulful pipes on newer fare like “Ship To Wreck” and the title track to the band’s summer album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, as well as crowd favorites like “Dog Days Are Over” and “Shake It Out.”
