In 1998 Dame Shirley Bassey performed in front of the pyramids in Egypt on October the 8th. This special was recorded 4 days prior to that inspired by that performance. It was broadcast on New Years Eve 1998 by the BBC. This show was also broadcast later in the USA and Canada as a slightly different version with added interviews with Shirley. Song: Goldfinger.
Goldfinger was not the last song Shirley sang during the recording of this show, she still had two more to record. During her entrance with the elevator a piece of the gold glitter got caught in her throat and you can see she is coughing during the end titles. It was very pain-full to her but she proved to be a real professional and completed the recording.
