Florence & The Machine’s Gear Destroyed in Fire

Florence & The Machine lost all their equipment when their trailer went on fire some time before their Copenhagen gig tonight. Details are patchy but they took to the stage in the Danish capital announcing the incident and saying that everything they were playing on was borrowed. As there wasn’t a any merchandise available it is likely that everything they had on tour was lost. To their credit they turned the concert into a celebration that no-one was injured and put on a spirited show despite the downer. Read the full review on shortly.

UPDATE: It looks like the fire happened on the way to Denmark from Norway on Saturday night-Sunday morning and it seems the rest of the tour will go ahead as planned with the rented gear.
