St David’s Hall
Monday 18 May
Limited Tickets Still Available!
POP legend Lulu will belt out the hits on a night that’s guaranteed to give you something to shout about next Monday (18 May) at St David’s Hall.
And if that wasn’t enough she will also be performing the songs that first inspired her, as well as selection of carefully chosen personal favourites.
Lulu first exploded onto the scene in the 60s as a tender 15-year-old. But within seconds of hit single Shout, her unmistakable voice was announced to the world. Ever since, she has topped the charts in every decade and worked with seminal artists like Hendrix, Bowie, The Beatles, Johnny Cash and Elton John. A cover version of Relight My Fire with Take That led to a No.1 hit and a support slot with the boyband, plus a whole new wave of adulation throughout the 90s.
Also an accomplished actress, Lulu made her film debut in To Sir, With Love and broke hearts aplenty with her rendition of the title track. Small screen success followed in the much-loved Adrian Mole TV series and in cult comedy Absolutely Fabulous. In recent years she has released her own skin and hair care collections, embarked on a nationwide tour with her sensational show Here Come the Girls and released a bestselling book.
Yet, Lulu is never more captivating than when she’s on stage singing the classics – from Bowie cover The Man Who Sold the World, to Bond theme The Man with the Golden Gun, to Eurovision winner Boom Bang-a-Bang.
See this national treasure live at St David’s Hall!
NO SUPPORT ACT
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. She also starred alongside Tom Courtenay in Whatever Happened to Harold Smith and in the much loved Adrian Mole tv series. In the nineties she had the dubious pleasure of being shot by her number one fans in the shape of French & Saunders – which led to a regular slot in the cult comedy, Absolutely Fabulous . .
Lulu continues to set new standards and challenges for herself. When she 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 the hopefuls on American Idol, Lulu stopped the show with a powerhouse version of To Sir With Love – arranged by Barry Manilow – to a stunned audience of over 70 million.
And never one to slow down – Lulu embarked on a nationwide tour with her own music based show. Joined by two of the best powerhouse voices in the business – Chaka Khan and Anastacia – ‘Here Come The Girls’ was a must see event of 2009. Lulu says ‘I am so proud of our Here Come the Girls Tour. Putting it together has been so exciting and I am thrilled that these great voices, and now my great friends, Chaka Khan and Anastacia, shared the experience with me. The Show was a celebration of us women – a little mischief and a lot of fun, set to real get-up-and-dance music. Talk about woman power!!!” The show went on to have a second sell out tour in 2010.
And as if all this wasn’t enough – Lulu is now a very successful business woman with her anti-ageing skin and body care collection, Time Bomb, currently breaking sales records on QVC and now in John Lewis – and winning her a whole new legion of fans. She has also just published a new coffee table book with Harper Collins called ‘Lulu’s Secrets to Looking Good’ and is also promoting her brand new haircare collection Operation: GlamLimited tickets are still available priced £28.50, £35 & £45 plus a VIP package at £89 (plus a £2.95 ticket service charge per transaction).
