Florence And The Machine have postponed the remaining UK and Ireland dates on their Dance Fever Tour after Florence Welch broke her foot on stage.

The singer fell during their performance on Friday (November 18) at The O2 in London, the first English stop on the trek.

Ahead of the band’s second scheduled date at the venue on Saturday (November 19), Welch revealed the news about her injury on Twitter, saying she was "heartbroken". Her post on social media included a photo of what appeared to be blood on the stage, with the 36-year-old telling fans she hoped that the dates will be rescheduled for 2023:

"I’m so sorry to say that after an X-ray it seems I was dancing on a broken foot last night.

"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 have been told not to perform to avoid further damage.

"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 favourite show we have ever put on.

"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."

Florence and the Machine's arena concerts in Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Dublin are among those that have been postponed.

The tour was in support of their fifth studio album, 'Dance Fever', released in May. In October, they dropped the live record 'Dance Fever (Live At Madison Square Garden)'.

The band's spring 2023 dates in Australia and New Zealand, along with Irish gigs next summer, remain unaffected.
