She’s brash, she’s bold, she’s magnificently mouthy, she’s the one and only Lily Allen and she’s bound to be the talk of the Australian summer in 2010. She’s our favourite pop queen and with all BIG DAY OUT concerts now sold out, here’s your last chance to experience royalty.
A rebellious national treasure in her British homeland, ALLEN has been adopted Down Under too, her second album It’s Not Me, It’s You owning the charts in 2009 and going three-times platinum along the way.
It was early 2006 when whispers about the internet-savvy ALLEN began to reach fever pitch. Her debut album, Alright, Still, smashed through all the hype – she was a revelation in pretty dresses and dope sneakers, dropping snappy bundles off teenage attitude in LDN, Alfie and Smile. With It’s Not Me, It’s You, she may be a little more grown up, but she’s no less spiky on hits The Fear (“Inarguably one of the biggest pop songs of this summer,” said The Age), No Fair and 22.
On stage, says Chart Attack, there’s “one thing everyone can agree ALLEN has in spades: sass. Her between-song banter was top-notch, off-the-cuff and hilarious.” She’s backed by a four-piece band FasterLouder calls “a solid force to be reckoned with”. And Uncut called LILY’s 2009 Glastonbury set a “mass empowering sisterhood singalong”.
