About a week ago, fans of Florence and the Machine got the distressing news that Florence Welch sustained a vocal injury and “Wouldn’t be able to sing for a week.” This is especially troublesome given that Florence was just about to embark on a big US and North American tour. Her first official break from her silence was when she performed her new single “Spectrum” on Good Morning America only a day before kicking off her North America tour in Vancouver.
“Spectrum” is a pretty reserved track, so one couldn’t help but be reminded of how Adele had to sit out of touring briefly due to vocal injuries. Florence came out as scheduled and wasn’t kicking her powerful voice into full gear for the first 45 minutes of the show. “It’s wonderful to be up here, because I lost my voice for a while, and it seems like it’s back. This song seems quite fitting because, well, it seemed to suit last week a bit, when I lost my voice. Dark times… but it’s all better now!” Florence and the Machine then busted into “Breaking Down” and any worries about the singer’s health melted away.
Hopefully this machine won’t break down again; they’re set to tour nonstop until December. Florence and the Machine will be coming to MA September 14th at the Comcast center in Mansfield.
