Lily Allen: ‘I’d be honoured to play Amy Winehouse tribute concert’

Singer hints she could come out of retirement to play memorial gig

Lily Allen has said that she’d be “honoured” to play at a tribute concert for Amy Winehouse.

The singer, who hinted last year that she could make a musical comeback as a country artist, has been linked with a headline slot for a memorial gig organised by Mitch Winehouse to honour his daughter, who died at the age of 27 last July.

With Mark Ronson, Jessie J and Florence And The Machine also reportedly being lined-up for the show, which is said to be taking place in London to raise funds for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, Allen posted on Twitter revealing that she although hadn’t been approached to play the concert, she would be flattered to take part.

Commenting on the rumours, she wrote:

wow, first I’ve heard of it. would be honoured though.

Lily Allen gave birth to her and her husband Sam Cooper’s first child in November last year. It was subsequently revealed that the singer had decided to call her daughter Ethel Mary.

After confirming plans to take a break from music in December 2009, she turned her hand to running a London fashion store, Lucy In Disguise. She has also been working on songs to accompany a new musical version of Bridget Jones’ Diary, which are set to be heard this year.
