After attending a Lamar concert in London, Florence Welch, of Florence + The Machine decided to take the train home rather than a private car. At first the songbird attempted to go incognito on the crowded train, eventually her presence sparked an impromptu performance of her hit “ You've Got The Love” (NME, Jan 22).
An onlooker says: "Florence jumped on the tube after Kendrick and... every carriage was packed. At first she tried to keep a low profile but it didn't take long for a few people to recognise [sic] her.” Passengers started singing and the always friendly Welch sang along with them.
The kind hearted Welch was in the news early December when she stopped a fight at her performance in Scotland. The singer noticed the commotion in the crowd during her performance of “Shake It Out:” "I can't have a fight in front of me while I'm singing this song! No fighting allowed," she scolded the duo. "I don't know what's happening but I would quite like it to stop. It doesn't matter whose fault it is." She then hopped off the stage to hug a young girl and told everyone to “be good to each other.”
Florence announced in November that she plans to take a bit of a break from performing and touring to focus writing on a musical and to give herself a chance to get “inspired again” before working on new songs.
