The dog days of summer will be over by the time Florence + the Machine hit Minneapolis on October 20. The London rockers tacked on a Target Center gig to the very end of their just-announced 23-date tour, which kicks off August 5 in Montreal.
Led as always by powerhouse frontwoman Florence Welch, Florence + the Machine will be touring in support of their forth album, High as Hope, due out June 29. Tickets ($39.50-$99.50) go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday via the Target Center box office and AXS; click here for pre-sale info.
Opening the Twin Cities show will be Perfume Genius, the arty, theatrical indie-rock project of Seattle's Mike Hadreas. A solid opener, absolutely, though other markets will get Kamasi Washington, Grizzly Bear, Beth Ditto, or St. Vincent plus Lizzo, among others.
Here's the music video for Hope single "Hunger":
Now you might be asking yourself: Did Welch perform "Wild Horses" with the Rolling Stones last Friday in London, and, if so, may I see a video of that performance?
Why yes! Enjoy:
