To Sir with Love’s Lulu Says She Doesn’t Speak Before Noon on Tour: ‘I’m Not Lying’

You make (Lulu) want to shout! But not before noon.

Speaking to the BBC earlier this week, the “Shout” singer revealed that she doesn’t speak before noon when she’s on tour to preserve her voice.

“I don’t speak before 12 noon. I can understand why you think I’m lying,” Lulu, 75, told the outlet. “But no. I’m very disciplined.”

She adds, “I try not to come out of my room until 12. It makes it easier. I take care of my instrument. It allows me to sing.”

On Saturday, April 6, Lulu — who rose to fame after the release of “Shout” at 15 — is embarking on her farewell Champagne with Lulu tour.

“To be honest with you, if when I was 15 years old and someone would have suggested I’d be doing a farewell tour when I’m 75, I’d have said, ‘You are having a laugh,'” she said.

Adding, “You almost need an army to go on the road and I don’t want to do it like this anymore.”

Throughout the tour, Lulu will be joined by “special friends” and she’ll perform the biggest hits from her discography.

Elsewhere in the interview, Lulu opened up about working with the late David Bowie on her version of “The Man Who Sold the World” in 1974.

“Bowie was a very special moment in my life,” the “Oh Me Oh My” singer said.

“He made that single and we were going to do much more together. We had planned to do an album and I went to New York and did a couple of recordings,” the To Sir with Love star added. “But David was on a certain trajectory in his life and he was over there and I was here doing my TV series and it didn’t quite work out. Not that we didn’t want it to.”

Though Champagne with Lulu will be her final tour, the singer still plans to continue writing and recording music. And she still has one goal in mind for her music career.

“I want to sing a duet with Rod Stewart, I’ve never sung with Rod. That’s on my wish list,” Lulu said. “I think it’s weird it’s never happened.”

“So, I’ve decided I may have to approach Rod at some point,” she continued. “He may not answer my call though.”
