Lulu has announced her first solo UK and Ireland tour in over 10 years, which will see her performing at Salford’s Lowry Theatre on Sunday 10th May 2015.
The 18 date tour of the UK and Ireland will coincide with the release of her brand new album – her first since 2005, which the Grammy-nominated songwriter is currently penning and recording. The album is set to mark a throwback to her soulful roots – the music which initially inspired her to perform and her passion.
Despite not having toured the UK in over 10 years, Lulu has certainly been keeping busy – performing at the Closing Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, playing successful club dates and touring alongside Jools Holland.
Lulu commented “I’ve always loved doing live gigs. After performing at the legendary BB King’s NYC last year and now starting to record the album, I’m re-invigorated and ready to get back on the road again. Even before I ever had a hit record I was doing three or four live gigs each week. And recently I’ve had a renewed sense of purpose. I just feel a compulsion to make this new record and, because of that, the songs are just pouring out.
“My family always said I came into this world singing, and I’d be happy to go out of this world singing – but I have a lot more to say before that happens!”
