Florence + the Machine recently nixed several European dates due to an unidentified problem with Florence Welch's voice, but the band was back at it Wednesday with an appearance on ABC's 'Good Morning America.' Welch took the opportunity to discuss the fright of losing her voice during a performance -- and how badly she didn't want to cancel any gigs because of her ailment.

Florence + the Machine recently had to nix a few European gigs due to singer Florence Welch's vocal problems. Obviously that didn't get in the way of the band's 'Seven Devils' being featured in the latest trailer commercial for the BBC Series, 'Shakespeare Unlocked' -- yet it is an instrumental version of the tune that is used in the BBC preview clip.
Florence + the Machine's Florence Welch does not want to damage her gorgeous voice, and thus the band has cancelled the final two dates on their current European tour. Thursday's gig at the Benicassim festival in Benicassim, Spain and this weekend's performance at the Optimus Alive gathering in Lisbon, Portugal have both been nixed due to her unidentified vocal issues.
It was a busy weekend for music lovers in the U.K. Not only was the Isle of Wight Festival going on this past Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but Radio 1's Hackney Weekend had a busy two-day stretch as well. Video has surfaced of Florence + the Machine giving a goosebump-inducing performance of their hit 'Shake It Out.'
Everyone always talks about what a great voice Florence Welch has, and it all starts with those pipes that fans first came to love on the 'Lungs' album.
