Florence And The Machine To Perform At LACMA Gala


Florence and the Machine have been announced as performers this fall at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's second annual Art + Film Gala.

The event will be one of the last Florence and the Machine performances for some time, as frontwoman Florence Welch told Style magazine that she plans to take a twelve-month hiatus before starting work on the band's next studio album.

The 2011 gala raised $3 million toward LACMA's bid to bolster the presence of film at the museum.

Leonardo DiCaprio and museum trustee Eva Chow are back as co-chairs for the October 27 party, and Gucci is again the leading sponsor.

Stanley Kubrick and Los Angeles artist Ed Ruscha will be the honorees, with Steven Spielberg offering a tribute to Kubrick, who died in 1999. Last year's gala honorees were John Baldessari and Clint Eastwood.
