Florence + The Machine have postponed their U.K. tour after lead singer Florence Welch broke her foot while dancing during last week’s concert at London’s O2 Arena.
Welch explained the incident on Instagram, saying, “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 have been told not to perform to avoid further damage”.
She also posted a photo of a blood-spattered empty stage.
The remaining eight concerts have been postponed to next year.
“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 favorite 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,” Welch added.
“My heart is aching. I can’t wait to be back on my feet and back in your arms,” said the artist, who performs barefoot on stage.
