Florence Is BACK! Kicks Off North American Tour After Vocal Injury!

| Filed under: Music MinuteFlorence and The MachineHealth

PHEW!

Nine days ago, Florence Welch devastated us with the announcement that she had "sustained a vocal injury" after hearing something snap, and would be forced to cancel gigs at the Benicassim festival and Portugal's Optimus Alive so she could give those chords a break!

And despite an appearance on Good Morning America a few days back, many fans were worried that she would be unable to kick off her North American tour on time, given the amount of strain that one must put on their voice to carry an entire concert!

Well, we are glad to report that NOTHING keeps our gurl Flo down, and she and her Machine took the stage in Vancouver, BC over the weekend…and ROCKED IT out of the park!

Ch-ch-check out her opening number, Only If For A Night (above)!

Obviously, she's taking a little extra care and showing more restraint than we're used to when it comes to her, but she still sounds absolutely INCREDIBLE!

She reportedly told the crowd a few songs in:

"It’s wonderful to be up here, because I lost my voice for a while, and it seems like it’s back. This song [Breaking Down] 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!"

It CERTAINLY sounds that way, gurl!

Obviously, we still must insist that you take it easy and stick to a lower octave for the time being, but if this is the point at which you're KICKING OFF the tour, then we're MORE than confident that you'll be back to your old self in no time!
