Music icon Lulu is gearing up for her final tour with a distinctive vocal regimen that involves maintaining silence until midday on show days. Born Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawrie, the singer, known for her hit cover of the Isley Brothers’ «Shout,» is set to embark on a farewell tour titled «Champagne for Lulu,» inspired by a memorable line from an episode of Absolutely Fabulous where she made a cameo alongside Jennifer Saunders’ character, Eddie.

The upcoming tour, which will feature special guests, will take Lulu to cities like Aberdeen, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, and London. Ahead of her performances, Lulu enforces strict vocal discipline, refraining from speaking before noon to preserve her voice for the stage.

Reflecting on her illustrious career, Lulu reminisced about her Eurovision victory in 1969, where her rendition of «Boom Bang-a-Bang» secured a tie-breaking win for the UK alongside France, Spain, and the Netherlands. She also recalled lending her voice to the Bond film «The Man With the Golden Gun,» starring Roger Moore as 007.

At 75 years old, Lulu expressed gratitude for her long-lasting career in the spotlight. She mentioned that she never envisioned doing a farewell tour at this stage of her life but feels privileged to continue singing and performing. Despite bidding farewell to touring, Lulu affirmed her intention to remain active in music and explore more acting opportunities, following her recent role in the 2024 comedy film «Arthur’s Whisky,» where she starred alongside Diane Keaton, Patricia Hodge, and Adil Ray.

With her last studio album, «Making Life Rhyme,» released to critical acclaim in 2015, Lulu looks forward to celebrating her legacy on stage and beyond, embracing new artistic avenues while cherishing her extraordinary journey in the music industry.
