Video: Florence + The Machine's beautiful moment of silence for Aurora theater victims
Last night's Florence + The Machine show at Red Rocks is one attendees will always remember -- because of the music, of course, but also due to the expanded stretch when it stopped. According to our Kelsey Whipple, who reviewed the show, the encore began with lead singer Florence Welch asking the crowd to take part in a moment of silence to honor the victims of the Aurora theater shooting. And as you'll hear in the video on view below, the crowd really was silent -- amazingly so, and for a really long time. The only exception, Whipple says, were the handful of fans who burst into tears before the Machine played the extremely appropriate "Never Let Me Go." Experience it for yourself below.
