Florence + the Machine aren’t for those who like restraint in their pop music. On their 2009 debut, Lungs, Florence Welch pours her heart into every lyric as pianist Isabella Summers and a bevy of backup singers struggle to keep pace. It’s Adele by way of a Technicolor melodrama. If Florence + the Machine tone things down on this year’s High as Hope, drama remains their stock in trade. No slouch when it comes to theatricality, St. Vincent deserves her own stadium-headlining tour on the strength of a discography that includes last year’s Jack Antonoff–produced Masseduction. Add Prince-approved Minneapolis rapper Lizzo, and this bill becomes unmissable.
