Florence Sidelined With Vocal Injury
After sustaining a very serious vocal injury (shades of Adele, anyone?) Florence Welch has been forced to scrap two European concerts.
"hello everyone, thank you so much for all your messages of support, yes its true..it finally happened, I've lost my voice," she just Tweeted. "I've sustained a vocal injury and been told i cannot sing for a week.. seriously i felt something snap, it was very frightening.. unfortunately this means i will not be able to perform at Benicassim and Optimus alive festival this weekend..i am so so sorry.. im so sorry to all the fans, i was desperate to still perform, but was told without question not to, so as not to do permanent damage..I hope i can make it up to you in the future, have an amazing time...yours croakily florence."
Florence + The Machine was scheduled to play at the Benicassim festival in Spain on Thursday and at the Optimus Alive event in Portugal this weekend.
Get better soon, Flo!
