Florence Welch Cancels UK Tour After Breaking Foot on Stage – Florence Welch, the lead singer of Florence and the Machine, broke her foot on stage Friday night, causing the band to cancel their tour. Welch fell while performing at the O2 Arena in London, which was the first concert of the Dance Fever tour in England. She finished the performance and was scheduled to perform at the same venue on Saturday, but on Saturday afternoon she informed her fans that she had broken her foot.
Her Instagram post featured an image of what seemed to be blood on stage. Welch told fans that she hoped the rescheduled performances would take place in 2023. She said, “I’m so sorry to say that after an X-ray it seems I was dancing on a broken foot last night.” “It is not in my nature to postpone a show, and certainly not a UK tour, but I’m in pain and, as dancers know, dancing on an injury is not a good idea. And have been told not to perform to avoid further damage.” “Please hang on to your tickets.”
“We are working our hardest to reschedule these dates for next year and we will let you know as soon as possible. I’m heartbroken as the Dance Fever tour has been my favourite show we have ever put on.” “I love you so much, and I’m so sorry to anyone who is disappointed. My heart is aching. I can’t wait to be back on my feet and back in your arms.” Concerts in Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, and Dublin have been postponed, among others. The tour was alongside her the album of the same name, which was released in May.
Florence and the Machine was founded in 2007 and received the Critics’ Choice award at the 2009 Brit Awards. They have been nominated for six Grammys and three Mercury prizes, and they headlined the 2015 Glastonbury festival. After their release, the band’s albums Dance Fever, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, Ceremonials, and Lungs all topped the charts.
