Florence + The Machine is set to tour Australia for the first time in four years.
The indie favourites, headed by enigmatic frontwoman Florence Welch, will kick off a nationwide run of shows at RAC Arena on March 4, 2023.
While fans may still have to wait 10 months yet, an added sweetener was added to the mix with news King Princess will support all Aussie dates.
The tour will follow the release of Florence + The Machine’s fifth studio record Dance Fever, which is out on May 13.
The album has already spawned hit singles My Love, King, Heaven is here and Free and was recorded during the pandemic in London, as Welch dreamed of being back dancing at festivals and performing anthems for thrumming crowds.
Dance Fever follows the band’s smash debut album Lungs in 2009, Ceremonials in 2011, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful in 2015 and High As Hope in 2018, which have racked up more than one million sales collectively in Australia.
They last ventured Down Under in 2019 with a sell-out run of shows, which were described as “mesmerising” by critics.
“There’s a certain sense of pomp and grandeur to the Florence + The Machine live experience that you expect — string sections, wild dancing, beautiful costumes — her music lends itself to such presentation,” wrote Double J.
Presale tickets are on sale from 11am local time on May 4, with general sale to follow on May 6. Check out more here.
