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)!
