Lily Allen plays warm-up gig ahead of pop comeback

British singer Lily Allen took to the stage in Italy on Thursday (19Sep13) for a warm-up gig ahead of her planned pop comeback.

The Smile hitmaker provided the entertainment at the Martini party in Lake Como, playing for guests including model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Shakespeare in Love star Joseph Fiennes.

She was accompanied by pianist Chilly Gonzales, and DJ Mark Ronson later hit the decks at the glitzy bash.

After the event, Allen tweeted, "Thank you Martini Drinks for a wonderful evening, and thank you Lake Como for being so beautiful. Quite sad to be leaving."

Allen took time off from her music career to become a mother to two daughters, but last month (Aug13) she launched a new website and hinted at releasing a comeback single.
