Indie rock superstar Florence and The Machine are making their way to San Diego. The group will make their tour stop in America's Finest City on Sunday, September 23. 

Originally started in London in 2007, the band became successful very quickly taking home the Critic's Choice Award at the Brit Awards in 2009. 

Lead singer Florence Welch's powerful voice and dramatic stage presence has become a trademark for the band and through the years her concerts have proven that her style and presence makes for a night of unforgettable entertainment. 

The band's popularity made its way to the United States in 2011, especially after the release of the album Ceremonials, garnering a Grammy nomination Best Pop Vocal Album and a Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Shake It Out." 

2010's "Cosmic Love" was used in several television shows including Grey's Anatomy and The Vampire Diaries. The group also contributed to the soundtrack of the popular teen horror movie series The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. 

Then in 2015, the band received five more Grammy nominations for the album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, and singles "Ship to Wreck" and "What Kind of Man."

In June 2018 their latest album was released titles High as Hope, featuring the songs "Hunger and "Big God."

Welch has been deemed a renaissance artist by some and compared to legendary singers Stevie Nicks and Kate Bush.

"My icons were always women like Kate Bush, Stevie Nicks and Siouxsie Sioux. Who wouldn't be proud to carry on that tradition?" she said in an interview back in 2011.

Florence and The Machine The High as Hope Tour 2018 is on Sunday, September 23 at the Viejas Arena at San Diego State University, San Diego, CA.
