For the blog this week I have chosen two songs taken from a German television programme in the late 1980s. The songs performed are Something and This Is My Life and I particularly love this version of This Is My Life. I hope you enjoy it too and have a great weekend.
It has been reported in a newspaper in Abu Dhabi that Dame Shirley will not now be appearing there on October 31st. No reason was given why but stated that a big US artist was expected to be announced as a replacement.
As far as I know she is till expected to perform at the Royal Albert Hall in November for BBC’s Children In Need concert which has been organised by Gary Barlow.
Paul O’Grady has also stated that he will announce something big about Dame Shirley at the beginning of December.
All the photos that are posted here today are exclusive to The Bassey Blog. These were taken at the concert by my very good friend André. He took over 200 and I’m slowly working my way through them all. I thank you André for taking these photos and allowing me to share them with all Shirley’s fans.
For everybody who has not been able to see the fabulous Roundhouse concert of Dame Shirley at the BBC. tv on Saturday or through the BBC player which did not work for viewers outside the UK. here is the concert as broadcast. I am sure you’ll all enjoy it!
