Here’s something to shout about. Lulu is hitting the road for her first solo UK tour in more than 10 years, including a date at the Ipswich Regent.

She’s spent the last decade playing clubs in the UK and US, including a sold-out gig at BB King’s in New York City, toured with Jools Holland and headlined the sold-out Here Come The Girls tours.

The Grammy nominated songwriter will also be releasing a new album, her first since 2005, which will see her return to her soulful roots.

“I’ve always loved doing live gigs. After performing at the legendary BB King’s NYC last year and now starting to record the album, I’m re-invigorated and ready to get back on the road again. Even before I ever had a hit record I was doing three or four live gigs each week,” said Lulu.

“Recently I’ve had a renewed sense of purpose. I just feel a compulsion to make this new record and, because of that, the songs are just pouring out. My family always said I came into this world singing and I’d be happy to go out of this world singing – but I have a lot more to say before that happens.”

Tickets for the Ipswich Regent gig on May 25, 2015, go on sale from 9am this Friday.
