Florence Welch Breaks Foot at Coachella

How do you know that you’ve put on a hell of show for a sea of loyal fans? When two days later you find out you have a broken foot and that’s exactly what happened to Florence and the Machine’s frontwoman, Florence Welch.

Yesterday afternoon, the songstress took to the internet to reveal to fans that she had sustained a broken foot during the closing night of the first weekend of Coachella. During the band’s performance, Welch had jumped off the stage and apparently things didn’t go as planned which resulted in her busted foot.

But for those wondering how the injury will affect her upcoming tour schedule, including another round at Coachella, she reassured that she’ll still be performing, though a little restraint.

“Unfortunately while this heals, my performances will have to be somewhat stripped back. 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 it’s just as enjoyable.I’m going to try and make it super special for you.”

On the upside, she said she’s hoping to be back on her feet (pun intended) by the time the band is scheduled to play Glastonbury at the end of June.

For now, check out the band’s tour schedule which picks up tonight at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles.

    • I hope she gets better quickly as well. I doubt any of her performance from her until June will be boring. She’s just great like that.
