With free Secret Shows also scheduled in Tokyo and London, the concerts mark the first time a single artist will take part in multiple MySpace Secret Shows on a global level.
Allen will perform on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on February 16th and on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on February 18th.
She'll return home thereafter for a series of U.K. dates, but kick off a North American headlining tour on April 1st in San Diego, CA.
Lead single "The Fear," which debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart, recently topped Rolling Stone's "Hot List."
"The singer packs another lyrical punch as she touches upon the charade of fame, delusions of consumerism and media obsession with her celebrity," said Billboard in a review of the track. The accompanying video, which was directed by Nez (The Streets, Kano) and generated 500,000 clicks in five days when it premiered on MySpace, has been added at MTV, MTV Hits, mtvU, The N, Music Choice and LOGO.
