We're sorry, but we couldn’t find any events
Florence + The Machine will return to Australia next January for a string of national headline dates.
Released globally earlier this week, Florence + The Machine’s latest offering, ‘Big God’, is a raw and enchanting affair, and is the third single to be taken from their highly-anticipated fourth album, High As Hope, out next Friday June 29th. As Paste Magazine notes, “if Welch’s ethereal vocals made her sound like a goddess on previous tracks, she’s a distinctly grounded one on ‘Big God’ – ‘Big God’ is sparser, but gorgeously so.” Earlier this year, Florence + The Machine performed their brooding second single ‘Hunger’ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
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, and as Florence describes it, “is a pure expression of who I am now, as an artist, and an honest one.”
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.
FLORENCE + THE MACHINE will descend on Australia for her sixth visit next January. Today, the enigmatic musician announced changes to her line-ups on select Australian shows.
Due to international scheduling conflicts, breakout US teen sensation Billie Eilish will sadly no longer perform in Australia in January next year.
Billie was scheduled to appear at Florence + The Machine’s Sydney, Geelong and Adelaide dates, but will need to remain in the US in January. She has released the following statement:
“Hi my loves, unfortunately we all came to realize recently that we need some more time to finish something very important before going back out and doing more shows. I love you all and I’m so sorry about this :( I promise you I will be back in Australia and New Zealand before you know it. My love to youuu all.”
Off the back of a sold-out national tour and triple j feature album, local singer-songwriter JACK RIVER has confirmed she will join the bill at Geelong’s a day on the green event on Saturday January 19. She has released one of 2018’s most inspiring pop records, Sugar Mountain, debuting at number 11 on the ARIA chart and featuring hit singles, Fool’s Gold, Fault Line, Ballroom and Limo Song.
Already announced, New Zealand’s MARLON WILLIAMS will join FLORENCE + THE MACHINE on all Australian dates, having recently returned from a sold-out world tour for his sophomore album, Make Way For Love.
Geelong’s a day on the green concert is sold out with 20,000 fans attending the event at Mt Duneed Estate, once again reinforcing a day on the green’s incredible popularity in the region.
