Pop queen Lily Allen has announced a UK tour – including a date in Sheffield.

The 29-year-old – famous for number one hits such as Smile and The Fear – is to play the O2 Academy in the city centre on Sunday, November 23.

Lily made a triumphant return to the music scene late last year after five years away having two children and developing her own clothing line.

She returned with a cover of Keane’s Somewhere Only We Know late last year, which went to number one after being used as the soundtrack to department store John Lewis’s Christmas TV advert.

Her third studio album, Sheezus, released earlier this year, also went to number one.

Tickets for Lily’s Sheffield show go on sale on Friday, at 9am.

They will be available via Lily’s website at www.lilyallenmusic.com/live
