LILY ALLEN to headline Splendour In The Grass sideshows

It’s Not Me, It’s You World Tour reached Australian shores in 2009 and she performed to packed crowds on the main stage of the Big Day Out Festival the following year. Four years down the road and with a brand new album in tow, Allen will be performing her biggest Australian headline shows to date and lucky ticketholders are in for a treat. Allen first exploded onto the scene eight years ago with her single ‘Smile’ which held its spot at the top of the UK singles charts for two consecutive weeks and went on to end the year as the UK’s 11th most successful song. This was just a taste of things to come from Allen who, at the ripe age of 21, released her Grammy-nominated debut album Alright, Still in 2006. Her second major release It’s Not Me, It’s You came out three years later and created even bigger waves than its predecessor, debuting at number one on the UK, Canadian and Australian album charts. Leading single ‘The Fear’ held the number one position on the UK Singles Charts for four consecutive weeks and the album featured four times in triple j’s Hottest 100 – twice in 2008 for singles ‘The Fear’ and ‘F—k You’ and again in 2009 for ‘22’  and ‘Not Fair’. This year Allen returns with conversation-starting new album Sheezus (out now through Warner/Parlophone) which she launched earlier this month at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Teaming up with Greg Kurstin (P!nk, Ellie Goulding), DJ Dahi and Shellback, Sheezus marks a triumphant return to music with Allen beaming with confidence in her craft and the joys of motherhood and family life. The first single from her third studio album ‘Hard Out Here’ (watch it here) reaffirms to fans that the charismatic and outspoken Allen is back and is taking no prisoners: General public on sale from 9am local time, Monday 26 May   Thu 24 July                Melbourne | Festival Hall                             (All Ages) | Ph: 136 100   Fri 25 July                  Sydney | Hordern Pavilion                           (All Ages) | Ph: 132 849 | Twitter @lilyallen]]>
