2022-09-10 19:00:00America/DetroitFlorence + the Machine with special guest Sam FenderFlorence + the Machine are set to play an extended run of headline dates later this year, including a stop at Pine Knob Music Theatre on Saturday, September 10 at 7 p.m. Sam Fender will provide support. Pine Knob Music Theatre is presented by Proud Partners United Wholesale Mortgage and Trinity Health. The tour will celebrate the release of Florence Welch’s forthcoming, highly anticipated fifth album Dance Fever, out May 13. Florence has shared three songs from the album – “My Love,” “King” and “Heaven is Here” – all of which arrived alongside videos by the acclaimed director Autumn de Wilde with choreography by Ryan Heffington. Pre-order/pre-save the album here. Additionally, Florence will play two very special, intimate shows this spring: April 29 in Los Angeles at the Los Angeles Theatre and May 6 at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York – both shows sold out in seconds. Dance Fever was recorded in London over the course of the pandemic in anticipation of the world’s reopening. It conjures up what Florence missed most in the midst of lockdown – clubs, dancing at festivals, being in the whirl of movement and togetherness – and the hope of reunions to come. Just before the pandemic Florence had become fascinated by choreomania, a Renaissance phenomenon in which groups of people – sometimes thousands – danced wildly to the point of exhaustion, collapse and death. The imagery resonated with Florence, who had been touring nonstop for more than a decade, and in lockdown felt oddly prescient. The image and concept of dance, and choreomania, remained central as Florence wove her own experiences of dance—a discipline she turned to in the early days of sobriety—with the folkloric elements of a moral panic from the Middle Ages. In recent times of torpor and confinement, dance offered propulsion, energy and a way of looking at music more choreographically. Starting, as ever, armed with a notebook of poems and ideas, Florence had just arrived to New York in March 2020 to begin recording when Covid-19 forced a retreat to London. Holed up at home, the songs began to transform, with nods to dance, folk, `70s Iggy Pop, longing-for-the-road folk tracks a la Lucinda Williams or Emmylou Harris and more, ultimately arriving somewhere that Florence describes as “Nick Cave at the club.” Lyrically, she took inspiration from the tragic heroines of pre-Raphaelite art, the gothic fiction of Carmen Maria Machado and Julia Armfield, the visceral wave of folk horror film from The Wicker Man and The Witch to Midsommar. Dance Fever is an album that sees Florence at the peak of her powers, coming into a fully realized self-knowledge, poking sly fun at her own self-created persona, playing with ideas of identity, masculinity and femininity, redemption and celebration. Dance Fever was produced by Florence, Jack Antonoff and Dave Bayley of Glass Animals.Pine Knob Music Theatre
