Ireland gets double the Florence this coming September
After being confirmed as a head-liner for this year’s Electric Picnic Festival, Florence + The Machine, just announced a new gig for Thursday 10th September in Dublin’s 3Arena.
The date comes as part of the band’s first UK-Irish Tour since 2012 and will take lead singer, Florence Welch, and company over 9 cities between both islands, and a string of Summer festivals. Tickets for the Dublin show will be on sale next Friday 12th June at 9am from Ticketmaster outlets and online at www.ticketmaster.ie
This will be in support of the band’s latest album ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’, released last month (and available now in Spotify) with the singles “What Kind of Man” and “Ship to Wreck” doing the rounds on the radio-charts, YouTube-charts, iTunes-charts, Metacritic-charts and all-of-the-indie-rock-lovers-charts. All of the tracks were written by Welch, and all of the tracks but one were produced by Markus Dravs, two time Grammy Award winner in the Album of the Year category for his work with Arcade Fire and Mumford & Sons (the records ‘The Suburbs’ and ‘Babel’ respectively).
Fans will be able to see the band from as low as €45.05 (plus taxes and stuff) and €1 from each ticket sold will be donated to Kids Company (Queen Florence shaking off other people’s devils from their back).
Electric Picnic wiil take place at Stradbally Hall, Co. Laois, from 4–6 September 2015.
