Legendary singer Lulu will be heading to the Peterborough New Theatre on October 10 as part of an extensive UK tour.
Celebrating 55 years since the release of the debut smash hit single Shout, Lulu’s On Fire tour will see the Grammy-nominated singer play 35-dates across the UK and the city theatre on Broadway, now under new management is one of the venues.
Selladoor have recently taken over the theatre and have announced dates for several of their own productions as well as others with the opening planned for September with Avenue Q.
Lulu’s concert On Fire, will be a show packed full of hits, such as The Man Who Sold The World, Relight My Fire, To Sir With Love and, of course, Shout, amongst many others, as Lulu recounts her remarkable life now at 70 years old and a career that’s outshone many of her contemporaries.
The announcement came just 48 hours after Lulu was revealed as Take That’s very special guest for their 37-date Greatest Hits Live Tour, where every night they will reunite to perform their #1 smash hit Relight My Fire together.
Backed by her band, a huge LED screen (for the first time) showing carefully selected personal and career defining moments, the show will tell her amazing story that started on 3rd November 1948.
Lulu said, “I’ve so enjoyed touring with my amazing band over the past few years that it didn’t take very long for me to get the urge to hit the road again. We’ll be playing here, there and everywhere, so I invite fans old and new to come along and share a great night covering my six decades in music.”
Singer, songwriter, actress, business woman and national treasure are all labels that have been attributed to Lulu, who’s stayed the course when many have faltered, simply because of her talent as an artist and her determination as a person.
You can see her live at Peterborough New Theatre on October 10.
