Florence Welch has opened up about the scary reason she had to cancel a handful of concerts.

The 36-year-old musician had to postpone the Florence + The Machine tour last fall, due to a broken foot.

After picking up the tour this year, Florence had to cancel a few more shows and is revealing the reason why.

“I’m so sorry that I had to cancel the last couple of shows,” she started, revealing that her past broken foot has nothing to do with it.

Florence continued, “My feet are fine, I had to have emergency surgery for reasons I don’t really feel strong enough to go into yet, but it saved my life. And I will be back to close out the Dance Fever tour in Lisbon and Malaga (maybe not jumping so much, but you can do that for me).”

“Suffice to say I wish the songs were less accurate in their predictions. But creativity is a way of coping, mythology is way of making sense,” she added. “And the dark fairytale of Dave Fever, with all its strange prophecies, will provide me with much needed strength and catharsis right now.”
