Florence + The Machine will descend on Australia for her sixth visit next January. Today, the enigmatic musician announced changes to her line-ups on select Australian shows.
Due to international scheduling conflicts, breakout US teen sensation Billie Eilish will sadly no longer perform in Australia in January next year.
Billie was scheduled to appear at Florence + The Machine’s Sydney, Geelong and Adelaide dates, but will need to remain in the US in January, she has released the following statement regarding the cancellation:
“hi my loves, unfortunately we all came to realize recently that we need some more time to finish something very important before going back out and doing more shows. I love you all and I’m so sorry about this 🙁 I promise you I will be back in australia and new zealand before you know it.
my love to youuu all.”
Off the back of a sold-out national tour and triple j feature album, local singer-songwriter Jack River has confirmed she will join the bill at Geelong’s A Day On The Green on Saturday 19th January and Sydney’s The Domain on Saturday 26th January, which will be the largest show Florence + The Machine has ever played in Australia and one of the largest ticketed music events ever to take place in the iconic open-air venue.
Recently Grammy-nominated US RnB artist Leon Bridges, who will be in Australia in January for a headline East Coast tour, will make detour mid-tour, to make a very special appearance at Adelaide’s Botanic Park on Wednesday 16th January.
Already announced on the bill, New Zealand’s Marlon Williams will join the bill with Florence + The Machine on all Australian dates, having recently returned from a sold-out world tour for his sophomore album, Make Way For Love, and London-based singer-songwriter Yellow Days will captivate audiences at Auckland’s Spark Arena, with his commanding baritone and dreamy brand of slacker-rock on his debut New Zealand visit.
Florence + The Machine’s new album, High As Hope, is out now via Universal Music
