Florence and the Machine are once again targeting arenas, this time in the name of their "How Beautiful" tour.

With their 2009 debut album Lungs, which includes hits such as "Dog Days Are Over" and "Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)," they caught the attention of those who wish to have more otherworldly, graceful tunes added to their music collection. 

Of course, the Grammys came a-knockin' and the group is now up to eight nominations with their latest release, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful. If the dreamlike A Midsummers Night's Dream were to be translated over to the musical world, it's Welch and her crew that would pump out the most accurate of interpretations. 

7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 14 | Amway Center, 400 W. Church St. | 407-440-7000 | amwaycenter.com | $38.50-$78.50
