Serviced apartments in Manchester for Florence and the Machine

Manchester apartments are still available for anyone travelling to see Florence and the Machine at the MEN Arena. Apartments in Manchester are an ideal option for anyone looking to stay in the city, as they can offer a home away from home.

Florence and the Machine will be playing the MEN Arena on Thursday 15th March 2012, and tickets are now on sale. Florence and the Machine (sometimes written as Florence + the Machine) is the recording name for Florence Welch, a singer and songwriter who has quickly established herself as one of the most exciting new talents in pop. She first burst on to the scene with her debut album “Lungs” in 2009 which was widely hailed by the critics. Before this however, the music industry was well aware of Florence’s talent. She was supported by BBC Introducing, an initiative to promote new talent and she also won the Critic’s Choice award at the 2009 BRIT Awards. The release of her debut album confirmed that Florence and the Machine is one to watch. “Lungs” would go on to reach the number 1 spot in the album chart and has gone 4 times platinum in the UK. The album launched some big hit singles, including “Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)”, “Drumming Song”, “Dog Days Are Over”, and “You’ve Got the Love”. As well as continued chart success, Florence and the Machine hit the road and built a large following with some great live performances.

The 2010 BRIT Awards continued the rise of Florence and the Machine; she stole the show performing a mash-up (remember them?) with Dizzee Rascal entitled “You Got the Dirtee Love”, and “Lungs” claimed the Best British Album award. After this, everyone was waiting to see what Florence and the Machine would do next, and were eagerly anticipating her second album. The new album “Ceremonials” was released in October 2011 and demonstrates that Florence and the Machine are in it for the long haul – many critics are claiming that this album is even stronger than the debut that impressed so much. “Ceremonials” went in at number 1 on the album chart, and demonstrates that there is an audience for them. The single “Shake It Out” let everyone know that Florence and the Machine were back and better than ever, showcasing an epic sweep but retaining the kind of pop hooks that the fans love. Florence and the Machine will be touring the UK next year to promote the new album, and there is sure to be high demand for tickets.
