It’s been a while between drinks for Florence and The Machine fans in Adelaide. The UK band played to a sold out crowd at Adelaide Entertainment Centre back in 2012, but the South Australian capital missed out when they visited in 2015.
But get excited! Florence Welch is bringing her unmistakable voice and flowing red locks back to our shores in January 2019 for a string of headline dates, including a stop in Adelaide.
Florence and her band will play at Botanic Park on January 16, 2019, belting out plenty of fan favourites. Plus the tour will be the first time tracks from their newest fourth album High As Hope will be performed on Australian soil.
High As Hope is as intimate as it is epic, venturing into new sonic territory whilst reaching back to Florence’s roots. The new album will feature collaborations from the likes of Kamasi Washington, Sampha, Tobias Jesso Jr, Kelsey Lu and Jamie xx.
The UK artist has dazzled fans and critics alike across three celebrated studio albums: Lungs (2009), Ceremonials (2011), and How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful (2015), which produced a slew of worldwide hits including, ‘You’ve Got The Love’, ‘Dog Days Are Over’, ‘Shake It Out’ and ‘Spectrum (Say My Name)’ among many others.
Joining Florence + The Machine is breakout 16-year-old sensation Billie Eilish. Earlier this year, Eilish played her debut Australian shows, thrilling fans at St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival and two sold-out headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne. Her latest single, ‘lovely’ (with budding superstar Khalid) is an emotional pop affair, and has already gone Gold in Australia while racking up more than 97 million streams.
Also on the bill is New Zealand indie-troubadour, Marlon Williams. Williams has just completed a sold-out world tour for his sophomore album, Make Way For Love, which included major US television appearances on CONAN and Last Call With Carson Daly, plus recent touring with the likes of Bruce Springsteen and City & Colour.
Florence + The Machine will play at Botanic Park on Wednesday January 16 (all ages). Tickets start from $99 and are on sale now from liveinthepark.com.
