British singer Florence Welch is "feeling much better" as she battles a vocal injury which prompted the cancellation of two Florence + The Machine shows.
The Dog Days Are Over hitmakers were due to perform at the Benicassim festival in Spain on Thursday (12Jul12) and at the Optimus Alive event in Portugal on Saturday (14Jul12), but the concerts were axed on Wednesday (11Jul12) as a result of Welch's illness.
Welch received treatment on Thursday, telling her Twitter.com followers, "At doctors. They have to put a camera down my throat...", and she updated fans about her condition again on Friday (13Jul12).
In a post on the microblogging website, she writes, "My voice is feeling much better today, I so much appreciate all your... love."
She also urged fans to support the band's new song Spectrum (Say My Name) so the group can land its first number one on the U.K. singles chart on Sunday (15Jul12).
Welch adds, "A little bird has told me the charts are really close... shall we see if we can get ‪spectrum‬ to number 1, that. Would. Be. Amazing (sic)... we've never had one, soooooo... now we think it might be nice."
