By Alex HudsonFlorence and the Machine had already announced plans to tour North America in 2012, but now English belter Florence Welch and her cohorts have added another leg to the outing. And here's the best part: this time around, she's coming to Canada.
The first set of North American dates will take place in the spring, when the group will play a number of U.S. gigs in April and May. The Canadian dates won't come until a few months later, when Florence returns to our continent to play the Vancouver suburb of Burnaby on July 20 and Toronto on August 2.
See the full schedule below. As you can see, Florence will be very busy promoting last year's Ceremonials.
