Florence + the Machine concert chronology

The Ceremonials Tour was the second concert tour by English indie rock band Florence and the Machine. The tour included performances at Music festivals because it is lead singer Florence Welch's favourite way to perform live.[1] Welch had originally planned to spend over one year touring for Ceremonials (their previous tour lasted almost three and a half years)[2] before announcing that the December 2012 dates would be the final performances of the tour.[3] On 25 February 2013 it was announced that Florence and the Machine would be playing at the Coke Live Music Festival in Poland on 10 August 2013,[4] and on 26 March 2013 it was announced that the band would be playing at Chime for Change's "The Sound of Change Live" concert at London's Twickenham Stadium alongside Beyoncé, Ellie Goulding and Haim, amongst others.[5]

The Ceremonials Tour was a critical and commercial success. Pollstar announced that the Ceremonials Tour was the 40th best-selling tour in the world in 2012 having earned $31.8 million worldwide and having sold 618,436 tickets.[6]Paste Magazine ranked the tour as the 7th best tour of 2012.[7]
