Florence and the Machine postpone Glasgow concert following onstage injury

Florence and the Machine have postponed their Dance Fever tour after Florence Welch broke her foot. Florence took to social media to announce the news.

The chart-topping band were set to play the OVO Hydro on Sunday, November 27. Florence had an x-ray following her performance at The O2 arena in London, which revealed that she had been dancing with a broken foot.

On her Instagram, she wrote: “I’m sorry to say that after an X-ray I was dancing on a broken foot last night.

"It is not in my nature to postpone a show, and certainly not a U.K. tour, but I’m in pain and as dancers know, dancing on an injury is not a good idea. And [I] have been told not to perform to avoid further damage.”

However, she urged fans to keep hold of their tickets. She added: "Please hang on to your tickets. We are working our hardest to reschedule these dates for next year and we will let you know as soon as possible.

"I’m heartbroken as the ‘Dance Fever’ tour has been my favourite show we have ever put on.

"The communion with you. Your beautiful faces shining. I love you so much, and I’m so sorry to anyone who is disappointed. My heart is aching. I can’t wait to be back on my feet and back in your arms.”
