    Florence and The Machine may have delivered a lively performance at Coachella this past weekend, but it came at a cost. Earlier today, frontwoman Florence Welch revealed in a Facebook post that she broke her foot when she jumped off the stage during her band’s set. Despite the injury, the tour will continue as scheduled, though with a few production changes.

    “Unfortunately while this heals, my performances will have to be somewhat stripped back,” Florence explained in the note. “I’m so sorry, I’m pretty devastated, but I still want to do the shows. I understand this is not what you were expecting, but I hope it’s just as enjoyable. I’m going to try and make it super special for you.”

    Welch went on to say that she hopes to be back on her feet by the band’s Glastonbury performance at the end of June. Check out the rest of their tour and festival dates below. In the meantime, stay tuned for Florence and the Machine’s new album How Big How Blue How Beautiful, out June 2nd.
