Florence and The Machine: Florence + the Machine's sole release, "Lungs", has taken the music world by storm. Florence's booming voice is well complimented by the Machine's rock infused melodies and their marriage make for a rousing live experience. Florence + the Machine concert dates are currently scheduled on the final leg of their "Lungs" tour in which they will be visiting US venues throughout July, 2011.

Florence + The Machine is the stage name of British singer Florence Welch and her back-up band of session musicians. After generating much buzz with performances in London, the band released their debut album, "Lungs" in 2009. It peaked at #1 on the UK charts and was an immediate success. The album's first official release, "Kiss with a Fist" was featured on the soundtrack to "Jennifer's Body". Subsequent singles off the album include "Dog Day's of Summer", "Drumming Song" and "You've Got The Love".

Florence + The Machine gained traction in the United States with performances on David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmell. The band's single, "Dog Days Are Over" was re-released and became their biggest US hit to-date. In 2009, Florence + The Machine concert dates were booked on the Cosmic Love Tour which served as the group's first headlining tour. What began as an eleven-date United Kingdom Tour in 2009 evolved into a worldwide outing that has culminated in 18 international legs and continues throughout 2011 in North America.

In 2011, Florence + The Machine's cache rose with several high profile performances which generated a lot of buzz in the US. In February, Florence replaced Dido at the 83rd Academy Awards to perform A.R. Rahman's original song "If I Rise", which was nominated for the Best Original Song at the ceremony. Florence also teamed up with Martina McBride, Christina Aguilera, and Mary J. Blige to perform a tribute to Aretha Franklin during the opening performance at the Grammy Awards. Florence, who suffers from anxiety, rose to the occasion and proved that she can perform on the world's largest platforms alongside the world's greatest talents and hold her own.

More recently, Florence + The Machine have announced that they are back in the studio working on the sophomore follow-up to their highly successful debut. They hope to release new material by the end of the year. For those fans waiting in anticipation, Florence + The Machine tour dates are scheduled on the final leg of the "Cosmic Love" tour which will be in North America throughout the summer. In addition, Florence + The Machine concert dates are scheduled at various stops along U2's summer tour. Their debut album has been one of the UK's hottest sellers for the past two years now, they have won numerous awards, and have performed at the world's most coveted stages. Come out and see Florence, the queen of rock-soul, and the Machine when they are in your area. Use Eventful as your source for Florence + The Machine tour dates and venue information.
