Florence Welch receives ban on climbing
Florence Welch's mum thought she would die on stage.
The Florence and the Machine singer's band have banned her from attempting to climb the lighting rigs while performing after fearing she would fall following a particularly terrifying incident.
She explained: "At Glastonbury I climbed halfway up the lighting rig, so at Reading I thought I'd see how high I could get. I got to the top and thought I'd hang around for a bit. I let go with one hand and everything.
"But I got banned from doing that because apparently my mum was watching it on TV from behind the sofa in tears.
"My drummer Chris was like, 'I thought you were going to fall. Don't do that again.'"
The 'You've Got The Love' hitmaker also admitted she finds some of her fans "weird".
She confessed to NME magazine: "There is a guy who has a tattoo of my face. It's the picture of me with the gold hands. He comes to all the shows. It's all the way down his ankle from his shin. I was just like, 'That's nice. That's forever right? OK?'
"It's kind of weird when people send letters to my house."Posted on 8 Jan 2010 07:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
