The London band are due to continue their US tour in support of ‘High As Hope‘ this evening (May 15). Hitting the Concord Pavilion amphitheatre in California, Florence Welch and co. will be joined by support act Christine And The Queens.
With Chris – real name Héloïse Letissier – scheduled to perform three shows on the stint, she has also collaborated with frontwoman Welch on a new playlist.
Titled ‘Florence + Chris: High As Hope Tour playlist’, the collection draws inspiration from other female musicians. “More than excited to join Florence on her tour, starting from tonight!” tweeted Chris. “We collaborated on a playlist celebrating strong, inspiring women.”
