    Just saw Florence + the Machine in concert and I can honestly say the tracks on this album are EVEN BETTER live. Can’t help but tap your foot to Dog Days Are Over or Between Two Lungs. Such a great debut.

    On June 12, 2011, British artist Florence & the Machine performed a 90-minute set from their debut, Lungs, at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA.

    SAN JOSE, CA, June 28, 2011 — At their largest US show to date, Florence & the Machine debuted new music to a sold-out Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA (produced under the direction of Another Planet Entertainment). Playing under the stars to a capacity crowd, the band celebrated their debut album, Lungs (released 2009), with a 90-minute set that set the stage for a victory lap across America. The band reveled in the moment, clearly excited to deliver fresh material.

    What Water Gave Me offered the audience insight into the band’s creative process as they flesh out ideas for a new release. Highlighted by a mini acoustic set, Florence demonstrated her remarkable voice; a voice that can make you smile, whether it be in a ‘stripped down’ setting or plugged in. Reaching out to the adoring fans with flowers, Florence encouraged the crowd with favorite sing-along anthems such as You Got the Love and Dog Days are Over. One noticeable omission from the set list for this leg of the tour was Kiss with a Fist.
