Florence Welch crowd-surfed at Haim's show at London's Forum last night (December 10).

The Florence And The Machine singer came onto the stage at the very end of the band's set wearing a white Haim t-shirt before jumping into the crowd, followed by the band's own bass player Este Haim. Haim supported Florence and the Machine on their UK arena tour at the end of 2012.

After the second night of Haim's two sold-out shows at the north London venue, the band were presented with their first ever Gold discs, marking sales of 100,000 albums in the UK for their debut album, 'Days Are Gone', which was released in September.

During the band's set, Danielle Haim made an emotional speech about playing the Forum, saying that it was almost four years to the day since she was last onstage at the venue, back when she played with The Strokes Julian Casablancas' band. "But being here with my sisters is the craziest thing," she said to cheers from the crowd.

Haim play two more shows on their current sold-out UK and Ireland tour – Glasgow ABC (December 12) and Dublin The Academy (13) – before returning to the UK in March of next year for another touring, taking in larger venues, including London's O2 Academy Brixton on March 6.

Haim played:
'The Wire'
'Oh Well'
'Honey and I'
'Go Slow'
'My Song 5'
'Don't Save Me'
'If I Could Change Your Mind'
'Running If You Call My Name'
'Let Me Go'

Haim will play:
Glasgow ABC (12)
Dublin The Academy (13)
Nottingham Rock City (March 4, 2014)
London O2 Academy Brixton (6)
Brighton Dome (7)
Manchester The Academy (8)
