Florence Welch reveals she underwent emergency surgery which saved her life

  • by

Florence Welch has revealed the reason that Florence + The Machine had to cancel two shows at the Zurich Open Air and Rock en Seine festivals in Switzerland and France, respectively – sharing that she underwent emergency surgery which ‘saved her life.’

Welch posted social media: “I’m so sorry that I had to cancel the last couple of shows. My feet are fine [the band had to postpone their UK tour after Welch broke her foot on stage back in November 2022.] I had to have emergency surgery for reasons I don’t really feel strong enough to go into yet but it saved my life.”

Welch said she will continue with the band’s final two shows of their tour in Lisbon Portugal on September 1 and Málaga, Spain on September 2, in support of their 2022 album ‘Dance Fever’: “Suffice to say I wish the songs were less accurate in their predictions. But creativity is a way of coping, mythology is [a] way of making sense. And the dark fairytale of ‘Dance Fever,’ with all its strange prophecies, will provide me with much needed strength and catharsis right now.”
