SCOTTISH singer Lulu has announced a 20-date UK tour for 2016.

An Evening With Lulu will features hits from across her 50-year career, including favourites such as To Sir With Love, The Man Who Sold The World and Relight My Fire.

Stevie Wonder and Otis Redding classics will also receive Lulu’s throaty treatment, while fans can catch her reliving raucous anecdotes from throughout her years in the business.

Lulu, 66, said: “2015 has been an exceptional year for me, in a 50-year career. From performing at Glastonbury, releasing my first self-penned album and touring the UK solo with my fabulous band for the first time in 10 years.

“I had so much fun I’ve decided to get back out there to do it again in March 2016, and I can’t wait!”

Grammy-nominated Lulu had her first hit at the age of 15 with a cover of The Isley Brothers’ Shout. Across her career, the Scottish songstress has released 21 albums and even won the Eurovision Song Contest in in 1969 with Boom Bang-a-Bang.

Beginning on March 2 2016 at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds, the tour will close on March 31 at Barnstable’s Queen Theatre.

Pre-sale tickets will be available to members of Lulu’s mailing list from 10am on October 14. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on October 16.
