Florence Welch Says 'She Felt Something Go Pop' After Hurting Her Throat

The Vocal Injury Led Her To Cancel Two Festival Gigs

Florence Welch has spoken about the vocal injury which caused her and her band to cancel two festival appearances this summer.

The star was due to play Benicassim festival in Spain, and also Optimus Festival in Portugal, however she suffered a sore throat at the last minute. 

She told Us Weekly: "I actually felt something go pop or snap, or whatever. Whatever it is, it was very frightening. I had to really adjust because it happened in the middle of a show."

She added: ""I had a full check up and he said that there wasn't any permanent damage that couldn't be restored without rest. So if I keep taking care of myself there won't be any reoccurrences." 

The star added that she found it hard to follow orders to make a speedy recovery - as she wasn't allowed any caffiene. 

"No tea, no coffee! That was the hardest part. I had been on such a caffeine kick up until then."
