Florence Welch is moaning again, this time about not being able to read on tour

Florence ‘Florence’ Welch struggles when she’s on tour because she doesn’t get the opportunity to read as much as she’d like.
“Night times are really hard,” the ‘No Light No Light’ hitmaker told the Daily Express. “You can’t even really read on tour because I can’t concentrate – and I’m obsessed by books. I always worry that touring is making me stupider…So I try to stay engaged.”
Still, surely getting to perform to all those adoring fans every night makes up for it?
“You’re in front of so many people and you’re connected on such a grand scale. But you miss actual intimacy and home. You start living for the gigs and the stage becomes the only normal place because everything else changes but the stage seems to stay the same,” she continued.
“And then the stage becomes your whole existence and that’s slightly terrifying.”
