LULU TO PERFORM FIRST LONDON SHOW IN 10 YEARS
“Fans of Adele probably know that she is part of the second wave of British women with a deep affinity for American pop and soul music. The first was in the ’60s, when the great voices were Lulu and Dusty Springfield”
– The New York Times
A singer, actress and businesswoman – it seems there is nothing Lulu cannot do, and now she has announced a rare headline show at Under the Bridge in London on October 4th. Following a critically acclaimed performance at BB King’s in New York last month (“The wall-to-wall crowd couldn’t get enough” NY Times), Lulu will be bringing her band to Under the Bridge for what will be the global star’s first headline show in London for almost 10 years. This exclusive one-off show will see Lulu performing a rock and soul influenced set featuring music from a range of artists that have inspired her over the years such as the likes of Otis Redding, Al Green, Joe Cocker and Eric Clapton.
“I can’t wait to get on stage with my band at Under The Bridge. It’s just me and my favourite musicians playing songs that I grew up with and that mean the most to me – a real back to my roots and back to the music – all in a great venue.” Lulu
It was the sixties when Lulu first burst onto the scene at the tender age of 15, with the mega, definitive and enduring Shout and made her name synonymous with rock and blues. Since then she has topped the charts in every decade, working over the years with some of the greatest talents of our time – from Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash and The Beatles to Elton John, David Bowie and Paul McCartney. Also an accomplished actress, her film debut was in the cult classic To Sir With Love, breaking hearts all over the world with her plaintive rendition of the title song.
When Lulu turned her hand to writing, her song I Don’t Wanna Fight became a world-wide number one for Tina Turner and was nominated for both Grammy and Ivor Novello Awards. And who can forget the high-energy duet with Take That, lifting Relight My Fire to new heights and taking it to number 1 in the UK. While mentoring on American Idol, Lulu stopped the show with a powerhouse version of To Sir With Love – arranged by Barry Manilow – to an audience of over 70 million. In 2000, Lulu was made an OBE.
This highly anticipated concert at one of London’s best new venues presents a unique opportunity to witness one of our greatest singers performing a selection of the most enduring songs of all time.
