Florence is coming to Dublin – wohoo! Yesterday it was announced that Florence + The Machine are going to play at the Olympia Theater on 7th December. If you were a member of the band’s fan club, then you would have had your chance to get tickets this morning. General ticket sale will be on Friday at 9 – get them on ticketmaster.
In more Florence news, the Mercury Music Prize was tonight and the hotly tipped favourite did not win. My other favourite, Friendly Fires, didn’t win. The winner was hip hop artist Speech Debelle for her debut album Speech Therapy. So commiserations to the losers and congrats to the winner.
