Artists Grimes, Of Mice And Me, and .Anderson Paak will rotate as support for Florence Welch (shown) and Florence + the Machine on all American tour dates.

English indie rock band Florence + the Machine are headed to the United States and will land in Orlando on May 14 as they are set to bring their “How Beautiful Tour” to Amway Center.

The tour is in support of the group’s third solo album, “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful,” which was released in May 2015 and debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, their first to do so.  The band has released a series of Vincent Haycock-directed music videos for several songs from the album, with each video acting as a chapter in a story titled The Odyssey. After releasing the project in short installments over the course of last year, Florence debuted the entire 47-minute project in full on April 25 on their website.

Lead by vocalist Florence Welch, Florence + the Machine’s sound blends rock with soul. With three albums to date, the group has been nominated for six Grammy Awards over the years. The group’s success has allowed them to work with artist across multiple genres including acts like Calvin Harris, ASAP Rocky, Rufus Wainright and more.

Acting as support for the show will be rising artist Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals.
