Not even a broken foot can slow down Florence Welch. Even though she’s still recovering from her Coachella tumble that left her in a cast, the vocal powerhouse has expanded her United States tour.
Fresh off releasing How Big How Blue How Beautiful, Florence + the Machine will be treating crowds to the new songs well into the fall. In her new tour dates, the UK singer will be starting in August on Oct. 11 before making her way out west, including two shows in Los Angeles Oct. 21 and 22, and traveling up the coast where she’ll finish in Seattle on Oct. 27.
She’ll have a lot of practice before then as the band have a string of festival dates planned, starting this weekend at Governors Ball in NYC and continuing with Bonnaroo, Glastonbury and Lollapalooza.
As for how she’ll be managing with a broken foot, Welch recently framed her unfortunate injury in a positive light: “We did these shows stripped back and there was a kind of… it kind of forced me to interact with the audience in a different way and it stripped another layer of… because this record is so sort of exposing in a way to kind of be vulnerable it kind of made sense.”
