Florence & the Machine going on tour this summer(Festival Pier) + shows with U2

with one comment

Florence & the Machine first made an impression on the music world with her song, “Dog Days Are Over”, by flooring everyone with her powerful vocals. That and her debut record, Lungs, ultimately led her to getting a Grammy nod for “Best New Artist”.  She lost to some jazz bassist Esperanza Spalding, who definitely deserved it. I don’t care too much about the Grammys, but I’m glad Just Bieber didn’t win. Anyway, Florence will head out on the road this summer playing various shows across the country including a few dates supporting U2.

She’ll be in Philly on Monday, June 20th at the Festival Pier. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday(02/18) and can be found HERE.

In related news, U2 will be in Philadelphia on Thursday, July 14th at the Lincoln Financial Field with Interpol. They were supposed to play last summer but Bono suffered a back injury which forced the band to postpone their US tour. Tickets for the show are still available and can be found HERE.
