Florence and the Machine frontwoman Florence Welch might have been dealt a crappy hand during the first weekend of Coachella when she broke her foot, but that’s not stopping her from putting all her energy into her newly toned down performances.
During Coachella weekend two, the songstress was confined to a stool and a few weeks later, it looks like the stool has become her partner for her live performances.
Last night, Welch and the rest of the band performed on British late night show, Later….with Jools Holland. Welch, who is known for her showmanship, sat on her trusty stool to sing “What Kind of Man.” We can only assume it took all of her energy to remain seated since you can clearly see her bouncing up and down, frantically, to the song.
Watch the performance on the show below.
According to Welch, her broken foot should be healed by the time the band are scheduled to perform at Glastonbury at the end of June. We’re sure she’ll be getting enough rest in the meantime because the band’s schedule seems to be light this Summer.
Their next gig is on May 9 where they will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live and then after that, they will have a big break before heading to New York’s Randall’s Island for the Governors Ball.
“What Kind of Man” is the lead single to How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, due out June 2nd.
