Florence and the Machine singer breaks foot.
She may be well known for her energetic performances, but it looks like Florence Welch will have to stop those wild performances for a while. The Florence and the Machine singer says she will have to “strip back” her upcoming performances after she broke her foot. She hurt herself after “leaping off the stage” while performing at Coachella Festival in California. Florence hopes she will be back on her feet in time for Glastonbury. The singer made the announcement on the band’s official Facebook account, along with an image of an X-ray of a foot.
“Unfortunately while this heels, my performances will have to be somewhat stripped back, I’m so sorry, I’m pretty devastated, but I still want to do the shows. I understand this is not what you were expecting, but I hope it’s just as enjoyable. I’m going to try and make it super special for you. By the time Glastonbury rolls around I should be back on my feet. This album was so much about making something from what was broken, so let’s see what we can do with this. All my love, Florence.”
With the band’s new album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful out in June, the singer had been looking forward to a busy year including performing at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Norwich. Florence Welch is scheduled to take part in at least eight major performances before Glastonbury in June.
We don’t yet know what impact her injury will have on her upcoming shows, but we have taken a look at her schedule to see which shows could be affected.
