Florence And The Machine have postponed the remainder of their UK tour – which only got underway last week – after Florence Welch broke her foot. She discovered the injury after playing the first of two planned nights at the O2 Arena in London on Friday night.

“I’m so sorry to say that after an x-ray it seems I was dancing on a broken foot last night”, she said in a social media post on Saturday. “It is not in my nature to postpone a show, and certainly not a UK 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”.

“I’m heartbroken as the ‘Dance Fever’ tour has been my favourite show we have ever put on”, she went 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”.

“Please hang on to your tickets”, she added, lest anyone tear their’s up in frustration. “We are working our hardest to reschedule these dates for next year and we will let you knows as soon as possible”.

Had it gone ahead, the next show on the tour would have been tonight at Bournemouth’s International Centre.
