Lulu says she doesn’t speak, let alone ‘shout’, before noon

Scottish pop singer Lulu is about to embark on what will be her final tour, but don’t expect to hear a peep from her before midday.

The musician, actor and TV star born Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawrie rose to fame in the mid-Sixties, aged 15, with her cover of “Shout” by the Isley Brothers and has since enjoyed a career encompassing a string of hit records, a Eurovision win, and a James Bond song.

Her farewell tour is titled “Champagne for Lulu”, after a famous line uttered by Jennifer Saunders’ character Eddie in an episode of Absolutely Fabulous that Lulu cameoed in.

Lulu, who will be joined by “special friends” during shows in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and London this month, has revealed that she takes her performances very seriously, and plans to rest her voice until the afternoon of each show.

“I don’t speak before 12 noon,” she told the BBC. “I can understand why you think I’m lying. But no, I’m very disciplined.

“I exercise my voice, all that stuff. I watch my diet. And I don’t speak before 12 noon when I’m on tour. It’s not a big deal. I’ve done total silence for weeks.”

So while she might encounter someone who makes her “want to shout”, Lulu won’t even whisper before 12pm on show days.
