Florence + the Machine announces North American tour, 2 Canadian dates

Florence + the Machine have just revealed plans for their upcoming North American mini-tour.

The 17-date trek will see the English rockers through a number of American cities between May 10 and June 9, kicking off in Mayer, Ariz.

Before the grand finale in Miami, the Florence Welch-led band will stop off in Canada for two exclusive performances in both Toronto and Montreal.

The tour was planned to promote the latest Florence + the Machine album, the critically-acclaimed High as Hope (2018).

Welch, 32, made the big reveal on Twitter on Monday morning.

The singer revealed that they will invite a number of supporting acts on the road for specific shows, including Christine and the Queens, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and Perfume Genius.

Blood Orange will be the main opening act for each Canadian show.

Florence + the Machine dropped two brand new tracks earlier this month, entitled Haunted House and Moderation.

They’re the first tasters of new music from the group since High as Hope was released. It’s expected that they are already working on a follow-up album set for later this year.
