Florence + the Machine has postponed dates on their ongoing U.K. tour due to frontwoman Florence Welch breaking her foot.

“I’m so sorry to say that after an X-ray it seems I was dancing on a broken foot last night,” Welch wrote in a statement over the weekend. “It is not in my nature to postpone a show, and certainly not a UK tour, but I’m in pain and as dancers know, dancing on an injury is not a good idea. And [I’ve] been told not to perform to avoid further damage.”

Welch and company were touring in support of the new Florence album Dance Fever, which the singer calls her “favorite show we have ever put on.”

“I love you so much, and I’m so sorry to anyone who is disappointed,” Welch wrote. “My heart is aching. I can’t wait to be back on my feet and back in your arms.”

Welch previously broke her foot in 2015 after jumping off the stage during her performance at Coachella.
