United Kingdom: Lulu announces 2016 tour

by Daniel Doyle 372 views

Scottish musical icon and joint winner of the 1969 Eurovision Song Contest, Lulu has announced that she is performing a 20 date tour in the UK next year.

Titled An Evening With Lulu, the show will feature covers from Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding and of course all of her hits from a career that has spanned over 50 years. To sir with love, The man who sold the world and Relight my fire are just a few in which the Scottish singer will perform during the show.

Speaking to The Scotsman newspaper, Lulu explained the reason as to why she has decided to go back on tour:

2015 has been an exceptional year for me, in a 50-year career. From performing at Glastonbury, releasing my first self-penned album and touring the UK solo with my fabulous band for the first time in 10 years. I had so much fun I’ve decided to get back out there to do it again in March 2016, and I can’t wait!
