I saw them on Saturday at the Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee. Wow. I'm sold. I went with a very marginal knowledge of their music, but the show was perfect from beginning to end.

awesome.. glad you were impressed. Saw them open for U2 last June and I was sold right then and there. Beautiful voice with so much power that she could of sang without a mic and the whole stadium would of heard her as if she had one..


I can't wait for May12.. will be seeing her headline in Atlantic City.

Two disclaimers: 1) I'm well aware that I'm generally not very good at recording concerts. 2) This is the first time that I ever tried recording with our new camera. It took me a while to figure out that the zoom was not a good idea.

No midwest shows :\ Looks like I'll have to deal with Lollapalooza, Sound Town or a long drive to Indianapolis if I want to see her again this tour. Which I do. I left that concert with a feeling awfully similar to the first time I saw U2.

I thought maybe I was overreacting, but I talked to my sister (who has been to more concerts than I have) a few days later. She concurred, putting only U2 ahead of Florence. It was an incredibly powerful and uplifting show. And, again, I had a very limited knowledge of her or her music.

I was in such a daze afterwards. We actually met Tom, Isabella and Florence afterwards. I was standing next to my sister who telling Florence (who was in her pajamas!) how much she loved the show. Completely surreal.

I think we had about the most ideal circumstances. Immediately after the show, I asked my sister if she wanted to stick around to see if we could meet anyone from the band. We did a quick walkaround of the building to see where they might exit. Then I walked back to the car to grab a CD in case anyone did come out. We headed back to the rear exit of the building where the bus was waiting. A very small group (10 or so) was waiting right across the street from the bus. Everyone was obviously a fan (i.e. no ebay autograph hounds) so we knew this was going to be a better than average shot. Tom Monger was already out talking to fans. And it was so casual, that I didn't even notice that he was a band member and not a fan himself!

He stayed out for about 10 minutes or so. We continued waiting, and surprisingly the group didn't really get much bigger. Isabella (shown in the video I took above) came out about half an hour later and joked that she was "the decoy" for Florence, since Florence was incredibly tired. Isabella took a bunch of photos with fans and signed autographs for about 10 minutes.

I was beyond content at this point and had just been told that Florence wasn't coming out. But we stayed anyway. About 20 minutes or so later, Florence came out and just kind of waived. She stood there for a second while her younger pre-teen and teen fans went nuts. Then she walked toward us when she realized we were about the least threatening "crowd" possible. I believe she asked for no pics, since she was in her pajamas. She signed only a couple of autographs and talked for a moment. When my sister said she loved the show, she responded with a very quiet "Thank you." I know for sure that i said absolutely nothing.

thank god for sisters..


not much different than what happened to me when I met Bono in 2005. Except mine wasn't a trance it was a complete mental blackout of my brain. I swore I didn't talk to him (in fact I walked away mad at myself because I didn't) but my friend said oh yes you did. I had no recolletion of the conversation.. get what I am saying? haha I did get a autograph too.

Yeah, same here. I met him in Boston in 2005. Sister was there too and did the same thing, grabbing the CD while holding onto Bono's arm and asking him to sign for me. I remember I said something that must have come out sounding stupid. She's in a ton of pics with him, I'm (sort of) in one or two.
