While reviews have been mixed for Lily Allen's new album, Sheezus, there's no doubt that the crowd at Highline Ballroom last night (5/15) was very happy to have her back playing her first NYC show in five years. They needed no prompting to clap and sing along with songs like "The Fear," "LDN," "The Fear" and new one "Hard Out Here." Like Sheezus, her new live show was a bit more of a production than we've seen Lily do before, with multiple costume changes and backup dancers. Pics, video and setlist from the Highline show are in this post.
It's been a busy week in NYC for Lily, with appearances this week on both NBC's Tonight (performing "Hard Out Here") and Today (playing "Our Time") shows. She'll tape an episode of "Live at the Artist's Den" tonight (5/16, to air at a later date), and will appear on Live with Kelly and Michael on May 26.
