July 17, 2014 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-EllisLatitude Festival has begun and it has now been announced that Lily Allen will be performing at the event on Friday evening! Although Lily wasn’t originally booked for the gig, she was more than happy to fill the position after band Two Door Cinema Club had to pull out of the show due to singer, Alex, falling ill.
“I’m so sorry to hear about Alex from Two Door Cinema Club,” she said. “However I am more than happy to step in. I’ve never been to Latitude but I hear it’s fabulous, and I can’t wait to get my heels on for some serious dancing action on Friday evening – so, so excited.”
Melvin Benn, organiser of Latitude, also expressed his excitement for Lily jumping in at the last minute. “We are honoured that Lily Allen is able to step in at the last minute and would like to thank her for filling the headline slot,” he said. “After her show-stopping performance at Glastonbury, Lily was a natural choice. The Latitude audience are in for something really spectacular.”
So, all festival goers are in for a big surprise! Lily has been promoting her new album, Sheezus, including her latest appearance at Glastonbury. So there’s nothing left to say but, enjoy the show!
