Just announced: Florence and The Machine, Belfast

Florence Welch of Florence and The Machine

Florence and The Machine, September 9, Odyssey Arena, Belfast

CURRENTLY topping album charts around the world with their third LP How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, Florence and The Machine have just announced two Irish dates.

September sees the singer and her side-men kicking off their first proper tour for three years with shows in Belfast and Dublin before snaking their way through Scotland and England towards four sold-out nights at Alexandra Palace in London.

Florence and co will be gearing up for the 12-stop tour with some big festival gigs, including a main stage appearance at Glastonbury next weekend. On Friday night, the band face the somewhat daunting task of becoming the second-billed filling in a rock sandwich between Motorhead and the headlining Foo Fighters.

Should they survive that, it's full steam ahead to Belfast, Dublin and beyond.
