Florence and the Machine was forced to cancel upcoming shows after singer Florence Welch suffered a vocal injury. Welch took to Twitter to update fans on her condition saying she has been advised not to sing for a week. "Yes it's true ... it finally happened, I've lost my voice," the singer tweeted. "Seriously I felt something snap, it was very frightening," she added.

Welch thanked their fans with another post saying : "Thank you for your get well message's. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your love and support..xxxx"
The British indie band rose to fame via their hit "Dog Days Are Over". Singer Florence Welch's distinct vocal style has been the main reason for the band's success. She is now advised to rest her voice for an extended time so that she can sing again and resume their tour. They were supposed to play the Benicassim Festival in Spain and the Optimus Alive! festival in Portugal over the weekend.

Artists Adele and John Mayer also cancelled tour dates in 2011 due to similar vocal conditions.
