Florence And The Machine's Florence Welch has been talking about Bono as a mentor. Evidently, the U2 icon gave her a few tips while she and her band were supporting Bono and crew on their 360 world tour.
According to NME.com, the frontman helped her in more ways than one. "Bono told me how to dance in high heels and he also told me about U2's Glastonbury performance and how everything that could have possibly gone wrong went wrong, including him ripping his trousers on stage. I think he was lunging and his trousers ripped! He was telling me how he had to find a new way of performing that didn't involve moving."
Florence And The Machine recently released their new album, "Ceremonials", about which Welch says, "I wanted to make something that had a cohesive sound, something that sounded whole, more of a story."
