Last night (Saturday, April 21), Florence + The Machine kept The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ summer concert series in full swing with a sold-out show at the resort’s Boulevard Pool. The English-born Florence Welch appeared with a seven-piece band including Chris Hayden (drums), Isabella Summers (keyboards), Rob Ackroyd (guitar), Mark Saunders (bass) and Tom Monger (harp).
Breaking onto the international music scene in 2009 with their debut album, Lungs, Florence + The Machine has become increasingly popular with their sophomore effort, Ceremonials, released last fall. The Grammy-nominated group kicked off the show with a crowd-pleasing performance of “Shake it Out” and “Never Let Me Go.” Fans clung onto every note as the indie pop band maneuvered through the set which included favorites such as “Dog Days Are Over,” “You’ve Got The Love” and “Cosmic Love.”
Next up at the summer concert series at the Boulevard Pool is Cage the Elephant on Thursday, April 26 and Snow Patrol on Saturday, May 12.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas features artists at the forefront of the touring world and emerging artists that will inspire the next musical movements coupled with spectacularly-designed, technology-driven venues. Perched high above The Las Vegas Strip, Boulevard Pool is a multilevel pool experience by day and an intimate outdoor concert venue with unobstructed sightlines of both the stage and The Strip by night.
