Last Friday Sydney Social 101 had the absolute honour to be invited to an exclusive gig to see Florence and The Machine live at Sydney Harbour. It was truly an intimate gig today for fans and some select media with lead singer Florence Welch’s distinct and lush vocals soaring over a dramatic Sydney Harbour backdrop. It truly was a moment that we’ll never forget!


We’re thrilled to reveal that Channel [V]  exclusively captured the performance set to premiere only on Foxtel, Sunday July 26 at 1pm – so you get to see the amazing performance also – pretty sweet hey!

Today’s special show opened with leading singles from the album, ‘Ship To Wreck’, as well as ‘Shake It Out’, ‘Queen of Peace’ and ‘What Kind of Man’ finishing with crowd favourite ‘Dog Days’ and ‘Only If For A Night’ as the encore.
