Will Lily Allen come out of retirement? 

The late Amy Winehouse's father, Mitch, has confirmed that a memorial concert in her honour will go ahead later this year.

Speaking to the Press Association, he revealed: "The Amy Winehouse Foundation is very excited to be planning a benefit concert in tribute to Amy later this year. We will be talking to a variety of people in the coming months and will announce those performing as soon as we can."

Although no announcements have been about potential performers, Lily Allen recently admitted to 4Music on Twitter that she "would be honoured" to take part.

Other acts thought to be making an appearance include Florence and the Machine, Jessie J and Amy's good friend and collaborator Mark Ronson. 

Though a sad occasion, we're sure it will also be a music highlight of 2012 and something Amy would be proud of. Plus, we would love to see Lily back on the stage!
