Florence + The Machine has announced their North American Tour for 2022, with stops at Madison Square Garden on September 16 and 17. The Tour will center around Florence Welch’s upcoming alternative album Dance Fever, which will be released May 13.
Arlo Parks, Sam Fender, King Princess, Yves Tumor, Japanese Breakfast and Wet Leg are set to be guest appearances for select dates of the tour. Welch will also have two intimate shows this Spring, at the Los Angelos Theatre in LA and the Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in NYC.
Dance Fever is an album centered around what people missed out on during the lockdowns of the pandemic like clubs, festivals, dancing, going outside, living in the moment and making new memories.
Choreomania, a concept from the Renaissance era of dancing manically to the point of exhaustion, is a foundation of Welch’s album. The imagery and concept behind dancing lifted her spirits especially during her first days of sobriety. From then on she began to form poems and ideas that ultimately led up to the completion of songs, as she took inspiration from the gothic fiction of Carmen Maria Machado and Julia Armfield, as well as folk horror films like The Wicker Man and The Witch to Midsommar.
As of now three songs from the album: My Love, King and Heaven is Here have already dropped. Additionally, for each song there is a music video directed by the infamous Autumn de Wilde and choreography by Ryan Heffington.
Pre-order the album here and visit Florence’s website for more information concerning the tour and/or the album. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets in select markets before the general public from March 29 at 10 am through March 31 at 10 pm. Additionally, one dollar from every ticket sold will be used for the benefit of Choose Love, an organization that supports refugees and focuses on spreading love around around the world.
