Lily Allen announces Royal Albert Hall concert

Singer will perform as part of children's charity Coram's City Rocks event

Lily Allen will perform at the Royal Albert Hall in London as part of a one-off charity show this April.

Allen, who recently returned to pop music following a short-lived retirement, will play live on April 1 as part of children’s charity Coram‘s City Rocks event. Coram is the world’s oldest children’s charity and celebrates its 275th birthday in 2014.

Joining Allen on the bill will be Maverick Sabre and Sophie Ellis Bextor. More artists are due to be added to the line-up shortly. Tickets for the event, priced £30, go on sale at 9am on Friday, January 10. Lily Allen has performed twice since coming out of retirement, first as part of an event on the London Eye and again on a charity bill at London’s Eventim Apollo alongside Coldplay and Robbie Williams.

Meanwhile, it was confirmed earlier today that a new Lily Allen song will be included as part of the third season of HBO series Girls. The third series of the Lena Dunham-scripted comedy will be broadcast in the UK on Sky Atlantic on January 20 at 10pm with a double bill of episodes, a week after it begins in the US.
