Allen Breaks Down On Stage

LILY ALLEN broke down in tears at a concert in Finland on Sunday night (16Aug09) as she struggled to sing through the pain of a back injury.
The Smile hitmaker fell and hurt herself over the weekend (15-16Aug) but refused to let the accident stop her ongoing European tour.
Allen was given a pain-killing injection prior to her performance at the Flow Festival in Helsinki, Finland, but the medication did little to cure her aching back.
The star burst into tears halfway through her set, and was seen dabbing her eyes with a towel and telling the crowd, "I feel a bit emotional tonight and if I cry it's not because of you but because of me."
Before going on stage, Allen told fans of her agony in a post on her Twitter.com page: "(I) fell over badly last night and I've really f**ked my back up. Just had an injection in my bum. How am I gonna get through tonight's gig?"
