Lily Allen - Lily Allen headlines City Rock gig

Lily Allen performed her first headline show since reviving her music career last night (01.04.14).

The 28-year-old star took to the stage at the Royal Albert Hall in London for the City Rocks gig - which celebrated the 275th birthday of the charity Coram - which provides creative therapy for vulnerable children - after a night of performances from other musical acts, including Brian May and The Feeling.

Lily arrived on stage wearing a sheer jumpsuit - which she later revealed she'd been sewn into - and began her set with her single 'Hard Out Here' while surrounded by four backing dancers.

The London born singer apologised for the fact that she may be a bit ''rusty'' following her four-year hiatus from the music industry before launching into a number of other tracks from her new album 'Sheezus' including 'Our Time' and also revisited her 2006 hit single 'Smile' to the delight of the crowd.

Lily later posted photographs from the night on her Instagram account and wrote a message on Twitter saying: ''That was dope. Thanks guys x x (sic).''

Maverick Sabre opened the City Rocks show with a number of tracks from his album 'Lonely Are The Brave' including hit 'Let Me Go', which was followed by a set from Sophie Ellis Bextor, featuring her 2001 hit 'Murder on the Dancefloor' and material from her new album 'Wanderlust'.

Queen's legendary guitarist Brian May joined forces with West End actress Kerry Ellis, and The Feeling played a number of their hits including 'Love It When You Call' before joining Brian and Kerry on stage for a lively rendition of Queen's 'Tie Your Mother Down' prior to Lily's performance.
