Florence + the Machine have added a second Melbourne show to their Dance Fever Tour due to overwhelming demand.

The group will now play six arena shows: beginning in Perth on March 4th, Florence Welch and co. will then visit Melbourne for two nights, Sydney and Brisbane, before concluding the tour in Auckland on March 21st. They’ll be supported for all six shows by indie-pop singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist King Princess.

Frontier Members can access presale tickets for the new Melbourne show now, before tickets go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, May 18th at 10am AEST via frontiertouring.com/florenceandthemachine.

The tour is in support of Florence + the Machine’s fifth studio album Dance Fever, which was released last week. It’s the long-awaited follow-up to 2018’s High as Hope, which peaked at number two on the ARIA Albums Chart and U.S. Billboard 200.

The album was recorded in London during the COVID-19 pandemic, and was co-produced by Welch with Jack Antonoff and Dave Bayley (Glass Animals). In a highly positive review, Rolling Stone hailed Dance Fever as “an ecstatic prayer for post-pandemic redemption.”

With over one million albums sold in Australia alone, and early songs like “Spectrum (Say My Name)” and “You’ve Got The Love” going 3x ARIA Platinum, expect tickets for the Dance Fever tour to sell fast.
