Florence + The Machine have spent a good chunk of 2015 on their ‘How Big How Blue’ world tour, finally coming to an end with their penultimate show in Paris last week. For the final encore on tour, Welch led her band through a cover of The Beatles’ classic All You Need Is Love, as well as I Love You All The Time by Eagles of Death Metal.
Taking the stage at Le Zenith, each cover was delivered with the famed Florence + the Machine flair, complete with her energetic stage presence, running back and forth across the stage, whipping the crowd into a delighted frenzy.
The covers also pay tribute to the horrific terrorist attacks which took place in Paris in November. The Eagles of Death Metal cover follows the band’s ‘Play It Forward’ campaign, in which EODM have asked bands to cover their track, with all proceeds going to those affected by the Paris attacks. So far, Florence + the Machine have submitted their own cover, as well as versions from Mini Mansions, My Morning Jacket, Savages, Kings of Leon, Jimmy Eat World and plenty more – listen and read more info here.
This show, at Le Zénith in Paris, was the final show of the band’s tour in support of their latest album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful and was a fitting send-off for the band who have travelled across the globe throughout 2015, including a jaw-dropping headline set at this year’s Splendour In The Grass.
