Florence Welch Broke Her Foot at Coachella
Florence Welch is known for her passionate and high energy live performances -- unfortunately, her last one at Coachella has left her with a major injury.
The Florence + the Machine frontwoman broke her foot during their closing song, "Dog Days Are Over" at Coachella over the weekend. "I'm so sorry to say, that after what was one of my favourite shows ever at Coachella, I have discovered I have broken my foot from leaping off the stage," she wrote on the band's Facebook page last night (April 14).
You can see what happened near the 57-minute mark in the video below:
With all of the energy pumping through her veins, it's not surprising she didn't notice during the show. Sadly, the injury means that she'll have to scale back the activities on stage for her upcoming shows (including this weekend's second installment of Coachella).
"Unfortunately while this heals, my performances will have to be somewhat stripped back," Florence continued. "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 its just as enjoyable. I'm going to try and make it super special for you."
On the bright side, not only does she promise to continue performing, but she hopes that everything will be all good by Glastonbury in a few months. "By the time Glastonbury rolls around I should be back on my feet," she said.
Revealing that the band's upcoming album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful, is "about making something from what was broken," she promises to make the most of it and give the fans what they've been waiting to see and here for so long.
How Big How Blue How Beautiful will be released on June 2 via Island Records.
