Florence and the Machine, Eddie Vedder and More Show Announcements

​If there is a current British Invasion, it's being led by UK's high-charting indie-pop band Florence and the Machine. They're so hot right now. It didn't hurt that they had a song featured at the end of one of the Twilight movies, which, in the music world, is like being given a lifetime supply of money. Now that the band has released their sophomore album, Ceremonials, to warm critical reception, they're taking the show on the road.

Florence and the Machine will be at Palladium Ballroom on Tuesday, May 1. Tickets go on sale for $39.50 at AXS.com on Friday, January 27, at 10 a.m.

If you can't think about the term British Invasion without thinking about Oasis, then this next show might be up your alley. Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder will be at Fair Park Music Hall on Monday, April 30, accompanied only by a ukulele.The Frames' Glen Hansard will open the show. Tickets go on sale February 3 at Frontgate for $78.50. However, if you belong to the Pearl Jam fan club you can get in on a pre-sale.
