The 2015 edition of Lollapalooza ended 30 minutes early as the threat of severe weather moved over Chicago’s Grant Park. As a result, Sunday night headliner Florence and the Machine were forced to end their set early, but not before giving fans one of the most surreal performances in recent memory.

Calling to mind Foo Fighters’ legendary headlining set at Lollapalooza in 2011, Florence and the Machine delivered a spell-binding performances of “What Kind of Man” and “Dog Days Are Over” as a massive lightning storm lit up the sky over head. During the latter, Florence Welch ripped off her blouse and ran through the middle of the pit wearing a bra.
