Glastonbury is a sell-out

We want Shirley!

“TICKETS for the biggest ever Glastonbury Festival sold out today in a record-breaking 90 minutes

Thousands of music fans were left disappointed after all the tickets were snapped up in less than two hours after they went on sale at 9am

The official website crashed 30 minutes before the tickets went on sale as it struggled to cope with a surge in demand”


Here’s some links to news stories all reporting the same thing:

Here’s a copy of a message from my friends at the official website, relayed here for fans who may not be registered for their email updates:

“Album and Single News from DSB

The great news is that the release date for Dame Shirley’s new album is now official – 7th May. The album will feature both new and remixed tracks with a few surprises too. We’ve been raising the roof of the studio with The Dame in the past few weeks and we think you’re going to love what’s coming up.

The not so good news is that we’ve had to delay the release of the single by a week. Our date of the 16th April was originally scheduled to coincide with an important prime-time promotional appearance on Dame Edna’s TV show on ITV1 but this show will now be broadcast a week later than planned. The new release date for the single is 23rd April.

The DSB website will be updated shortly to reflect the new date for the single and also to include details and samples of all seven incredible mixes – we hope you like them. Three of these mixes can already be heard at www.myspace.com/shirleybassey

CLICK HERE to order a physical copy of the CD single from a chart-eligible retailer. To secure that essential first week chart position it’s important that as many people as possible pre-order the CD single from a chart eligible site or digital download pre-order through the DSB website. That number 1 chart position for our Diamond Dame is in sight.

The enhanced CD single is going to be a real collector’s item and will definitely be worth the wait. As well as the seven mixes you’ll get two video tracks too – the exciting new music video as well as a spoken introduction.

CLICK HERE to watch The Living Tree video on Youtube. Please give us five stars and help bring Shirley to the rest of the world! And please share with your friends! Shirley loves her new video and we hope you will too.

Sorry for the delay to the single and thank you for your support and understanding.

Love to one and all from Camp DSB”
