This year will be known as the year of Florence and the Machine – after all, she is the biggest selling debut artist of 2009 so far! The Mercury Music prize nominated star called me this week to announce her brand new headlining tour in December. If you haven’t seen Florence perform then you should be ashamed. She’s utterly spellbinding. The star, who’s looking fab in her superhero Hannah Marshall outfit in her Drumming Song video, tells me she’s one hell of a busy girl. “I was actually told I wasn’t due a day off until about 2011 this week,” she giggled. “But the tour’s going to be exciting. I love having mystical superhero style outfits. But if I was a superhero I’d be the villain. I always found Poison Ivy very alluring. She was an inspiration along with the Wicked Witch in Sleeping Beauty.”
