High on hope


FLORENCE + The Machine are back on-the-road in support of their fourth studio album High As Hope, with the expectation it will follow their last three to No 1 in the UK chart.

The band worked on the album for three years, while also performing around the world. This included an appearance Glastonbury Festival (cap. 140,000), which made Florence Welch the first British female headliner at the event this century.

After a lengthy trek across the United States, the band will embark on a nine-date tour of the UK and Ireland in November, visiting venues such as Leeds’ First Direct Arena (12,000), Birmingham’s Genting Arena (15,500), Brighton Centre (5,125), two nights at London’s The O2 (21,000) and 3Arena (14,000) in Dublin.

‘Watching Florence perform is truly breathtaking,” says Emma Banks at CAA, who has been Florence’s agent for nine years. “She has a passion and intensity that you don’t see with many artistes and I never leave a gig un-moved.

“The last time I saw her was at the Orange Warsaw Festival [58,145] last month and, as usual, she was mesmerising.’

Florence + The Machine are managed by Hannah Giannoulis at HFG Management in London.
