Florence and the Machine tour
Sun 27th Nov, 2011 in Local News
Florence and the Machine will be returning to Australia in May for her very own headline tour.
Last year Australia simply couldn’t get enough of Florence with the fiery singer touring for Laneway festival and two sideshows early in the year and then booking in a return for Splendour with three sideshows, which quickly sold out and became seven sideshows (including four very impressive nights in Sydney).
This year Florence released her second album Ceremonials, but gave us just one Australian show with an intimate performance in Sydney that FL’s reviewer gushingly described as “a fantastic celebration of the intrinsic ability of music to traverse and toy with the full spectrum of human emotion.” Ceremonials also won a glowing review on FL that praised the album as “a showcase of compelling pop music dressed up to the nines, executed with heart, soul and glorious chest-beating flamboyance.”
Devonte Hynes has been added to the tour as the support act under his Blood Orange moniker. Check out the lead track of his recent Coastal Grooves, and upcoming single Forget It.
