OK, I admit it, I'm just a tiny bit in love with Florence & The Machine. Arrived at the venue early to find Florence sat outside. Talked to her briefly and explained I'd already bought a ticket, but found myself with a pass.
The venue in question is St Phil's, a lovely church in Salford, and the way she was sat in the doorway begged the question - "Do you mind if I just get a quick shot?" - expecting a no.
On the contrary, her manager was good enough to let me have a couple of minutes with the good lady herself. I'm very pleased with the results. I can't share much as I've given them to my agency, but here's an offcut from the set.
Great show, audience eating out of the palm of her hand. Oh, and a sweet note on my ticket too.
