Lily Allen Coming To Australia
Playing Headline Shows In Melbourne & Sydney
In the country to headline Splendour In The Grass, Frontier Touring can confirm that the sharp-witted and ever-talented Lily Allen will be treating Melbourne’s Festival Hall and Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion to headline shows this July!
No stranger to Australia, Allen’s 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 ticket holders 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.
Support Act Announced!
As Britain’s charismatic leading lady of indie pop prepares for her headline Australian shows and appearance at Splendour In The Grass next month, Lily Allen can confirm 22 year old rapper, Allday, as the support for her Melbourne Festival Hall show on Thursday 24 July and Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Friday 25 July.
Hailing from Blackwood, Adelaide and now based in Melbourne, Allday is tearing up the Australian hip hop scene and ARIA Charts with a fresh perspective, clear wit and charm, balancing smooth melodies and a unique delivery. His debut album Startup Cult (available Friday 4 July through We Are Unified) fuses soul music, indie rock and classic hip hop influences.
