British singer *Dido *returned to the stage in London to perform her first gig in more than four years.
She stepped away from the spotlight following the release of her 2008 album Safe Trip Home - but she is now preparing to return to the charts with a new record, Girl Who Got Away.
Dido made her return to live performance by playing for a small audience of just 100 people at the private Arts Club in London on Thursday night to showcase material from her new album.
The singer, above, reveals she was worried about performing again after a four-year break - but the nerves disappeared once she got on stage.
"I can't believe it's been so long. I suppose it is a comeback but it didn't really feel like I'd been away once I got up there. You don't realise you miss it until you get up there and it's like, 'Oh, I love doing this'," she said.Dido insists she doesn't have plans to tour but hopes to hit the road later this year as long as she can take her 18-month-old son *Stanley * with her, adding, "I was thinking of autumn, maybe? I was thinking I'd have to just take him (Stanley) on the bus."
