Lily Allen is not retiring.

Days after the 'Fear' singer announced she was quitting the music industry, the 24-year-old star has revealed plans to tour with 'Bonkers' rapper Dizzee Rascal next March.

Tickets for the shows, at Manchester's MEN Arena on March 5, and at The 02 arena, in London, on March 7, go on sale Friday October 9, with further dates expected to be announced in the coming days.

In an entry on her new blog - called It's Not Alright, which aims to stop people file sharing music on the internet - Lily said last week she had no plans to tour or record again.

She wrote: "Just so you know, I have not renegotiated my record contract and have no plans to make another record. I do, however, remain a fan of new music, so this is not some selfish crusade.

"The days of me making money from recording music has been and gone as far as I'm concerned, so I don't stand to profit from legislation. Except future purchases of previously recorded material."

Lily - who deleted the blog shortly afterwards - claimed she is now focusing on her appearance in a London theatre production called 'Reasons to be Pretty', which follows a group of working-class people who are bored with their lives.

The singer's spokesperson played down her claims, saying: "She is not quitting pop music and is still promoting her current album, which is why she said she is not thinking ahead to another record."

However, it is not the first time Lily has voiced her desire to give up her music career.

Earlier this month, she said: "I'm not going record and tour again for quite a while."
