Lily Allen Set for North American Tour

Lily Allen

The influential British songwriter and social commentator Lily Allen will launch her latest North American tour on October 5 at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA.

The North American tour, which the UK artist’s first in in four years, includes a show at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles (October 8) and a concert at New York City’s Terminal 5 (October 20).

Lily will also headline a number of UK and European festivals this summer.

Fans who pre-order Lily Allen’s upcoming album, No Shame, from her official store by midnight on June 4 will qualify for priority access to tickets for the fall tour via a pre-sale that launches on Wednesday, June 6.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 8.

Today, Lily Allen shared another song from the album, the poignant Lost My Mind, which fans will receive instantly upon pre-ordering No Shame—as well as Higher, Three and Trigger Bang.

No Shame, which will be released via Warner Bros. Records on June 8, is a frank and confessional album filled with songs that address the end of Lily Allen’s marriage, her feelings about being a mother, stories of partying too hard, making friends, losing friends, and, crucially, a sense of catharsis, that she’s coming out on the other side.

“There’s no shame in anything I’m saying,” she explains, of the candor that led to the title.

In a four-star review, NME said: “[No Shame] contains some of her most candid songwriting. It’s also consistently gripping and very affecting.”

MOJO also awarded the album four stars and observed: “Allen pulls off a high-stakes comeback with aplomb.”

And Office noted: “The new music feels like Lily Allen 2.0—refined, matured, and streamlined. It’s lo-fi and bass heavy…in an age where internet warriors are relentless in trying to tear down idiosyncrasy—to shame you into being tame—it’s a blessing that Lily Allen still finds a way to come out on top.”

Lily Allen was nominated for a GRAMMY® for “Best Alternative Album” for her full-length debut, Alright, Still which was certified Gold in the US.

She has had three UK number 1 singles, two number 1 albums and has sold more than five million albums worldwide. Lily Allen was recently featured on Cigarettes and Cush from Stormzy’s acclaimed Gang Signs and Prayer.
