Lily Allen Cancels US Tour - Except LA Shows, Coachella, and Bonnaroo

When reviewers of Saturday's KCRW Sounds Eclectic concert yawned at the surprise guest, Travis, they overlooked what they actually had in front of them. Namely the dynamic guitar duo Rodrigo Y Gabriela; and the pouty, sarcastic starlet-of-the-moment Lily Allen. When you have lightening in a bottle one one hand, and an unpredictable foul-mouthed princess on the other - and they both showed up - then you have a successful event.

Today it was announced that Allen will cancel her current US tour for the exception of her local appearances at Coachella (April 29) and the Wiltern (May 15), as well as her gig at Bonnaroo (June 15). Earth to Lily: if you don't like to be compared to fellow-Brit Amy Winehouse, maybe you shouldn't cancel so many shows.
