So it turns out that stage-diving can be a little bit dangerous – a lesson that Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine learned the hard way at Coachella over the weekend.

Flo posted an x-ray of her boo-boo on the band’s Facebook page, along with the following message:


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 let’s see what we can do with this.

All my love, Florence.
