TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT: Florence + The Machine

It was just under two years ago that Florence + The Machine stormed the scene and made themselves a household name. Now they are poised to set fire to stages across the country with their hot national arena tour in May 2012.

The debut album ‘Lungs’ was a multi-million selling, multi-award winning smash across the globe. It was certified double platinum in Australia and peaked at #3 on the ARIA Album Chart, it was home to the singles ‘You’ve Got The Love’, ‘Kiss with A Fist’ and ‘Dog Days Are Over’. Singles that were much loved and helped pave the way for her highly anticipated second release ‘Ceremonials’ – an album that debuted at #1 on the ARIA charts on the week of release, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to slow down any time soon.

With albums that perform that well you can be sure that tickets will go fast,  a place in those audiences highly sought after.

The Australian leg of the tour kicks off in Perth at Burswood Dome on Thursday May 17th. The shows then take a circuitous route across country with a Melbourne show on Sunday May 20 before Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Tuesday 22nd May. Next they head across to Sydney Entertainment Centre for a show on Thursday 24th May before closing out the Australian shows with Riverstage in Brisbane on Saturday 26th May. there is also a New Zealand show at Auckland’s Vector Arena on Monday 28th May.

An MTV VMA performance of Dog Days to a global rapt audience and a heart-stopping track on the Twilight: Eclipse soundtrack seem to me like a telling prologue to what is certain to be an Australian tour highlight in 2012.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday 7th December at 9am. Be sure to get in fast to avoid disappointment, these tickets won’t be available for long.
