    Default Florence broke her foot at Coachella...

    From her Facebook page....

    Hi everyone,
    I'm so sorry to say, that after what was one of my favourite shows ever at Coachella, I have discovered I have broken my foot from leaping off the stage.
    Unfortunately while this heals, my performances will have to be somewhat stripped back.
    I'm so sorry, I'm pretty devastated, but I still want to do the shows.
    I understand this is not what you were expecting, but I hope its just as enjoyable. I'm going to try and make it super special for you.
    By the time Glastonbury rolls around I should be back on my feet.
    This album was so much about making something from what was broken, so lets see what we can do with this.
    All my love, Florence.

    I have a broken leg and have been on one of these things:



    Getting around the Coachella grass on it was the most physically exhausting thing I've ever done, but on pavement/hard surfaces it's super easy and glides really nicely. Most likely though she'll just sort of be propped up/sitting on some device with people pushing her around stage.

    I knew that wouldn't end well when I saw it from the webcast. Didn't help she wasn't wearing any shoes during the performance. The impact she received from stage to the ground, doesn't bode well for bare feet.

    She was flying high Sunday night so she didn't feel any pain till Monday morning.

    By the way, did she successfully influence the crowd into an underwear party, or was her running around in her bra all for naught?

    Bummed for the Weekend 2 folks. She was a force of nature on that stage. She will still put on a great vocal show. That voice is amazing.

    She was pretty awesome at The Bridge School Benefit this past October doing a stripped down show. It, obviously, wasn't as energetic as Sunday's performance, but she had no problem winning over and holding a crowd of more than 22,000.

    I thought of you immediately, and can only imagine the labor of navigating those fields on that thing.

    But, in regards to Florence . . . on a stage and with agility, it could be pretty awesome. Am I wrong?

    Watch the MTV Unplugged performance if you want a good idea of a stripped down Florence show. I'm totally okay with something like that. Maybe they can dig into some of the more acoustic Lungs tracks.

    It's just unfortunate this happened the year she's subbing on the main stage, when you have a giant field to command, making an explosive performance seem more necessary than usual. If nothing else, I hope the band can still drown out the Drake chatter.

    Something stripped back with limited mobility might be interesting to see. Will force her and the band to get creative, on the Main stage nonetheless.

    She's now only getting a half hour set.

    Dang, that's crazy they shortened her set so drastically... that's gonna be like a 5 song set from her. Wasn't planning to see her, but there's sure to be some disappointed people out there. Can't she sit in a chair or stand on her good foot and do a longer set?

    I wonder if they gave her 30 minutes in case that's all she's up for, but left room in case she wants to play longer?

    See, that seems like a good idea, but there's almost an hour break in between her and Kaskade... they should have put her earlier so she could choose how long to play for if that's really the case.

    I did notice Drake won't start any earlier, giving an additional 15 minutes before he begins, so hopefully they'll allow FATM that extra time if they're up for it.

    Yeah, I'm definitely peeved about it. She was my top act for Sunday, and just because her foot is injured to me doesn't mean she can't play for at least 10-15 minutes longer.
