Florence Welch rocks Coachella set too hard, breaks foot

Florence Welch says she'll keep performing despite broken foot

Remember Florence Welch's outstanding, stage-jumping Main Stage set on Sunday night at Coachella last weekend? She's paying for it today.

The singer announced in a Facebook post that one of her leaps off the Main Stage fractured her foot. She posted a photo of an X-ray and admitted that she'll have to be a bit more reserved in coming shows.

"Unfortunately while this heals, my performances will have to be somewhat stripped back," she wrote. "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 its just as enjoyable. I'm going to try and make it super special for you."

Welch estimated that she should be back in fighting shape by the time the Glastonbury Festival kicks off June 24. Her new album "How Big How Blue How Beautiful" is due May 29, and as she put it, this injury might be appropriate to its themes.

"This album was so much about making something from what was broken, so let's see what we can do with this."
