play the third of three nights headlining London's Alexandra Palace, and 6 Music brings you the whole set live to air, introduced by Steve Lamacq..

Florence's rise to indie uber-stardom kicked off in 2008, when 6 Music's Steve Lamacq asked her to play a showcase he was curating at influential American music industry event South By Southwest. That night, she crowned her incendiary performance by jumping in the venue pool... and a legendary performer was born.

This concert, brought to you live-to-air and in its entirety, kicks off a week of exciting live music brought to you by 6 Music in celebration of its tenth anniversary.
