Doing this blog has opened my eyes to the international appeal of DSB.
I never realised quite how much she is a true World Superstar.
The only big country I haven’t heard from is China. Population 1,323 million versus 60 million in the UK – that’s some audience! 🙂
But fans have hit the blog fron Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea etc. and there are plenty of fans throughout the Pacific. Not least our mates the Ozzies and Kiwis, who are great fun and massively enthusiastic.
So it was a pleasure to hear today from Terence Lee in Malaysia, where DSB has a surprisingly good following.
In one of the Cardiff concerts, you will see a Chinese man giving the Dame flowers the minute she stepped out for Goldfinger. I know the timing was bad as she is usually nervous at this point before starting the 1st song but I was panic-stricken and had to get it over with so that I could relax and enjoy the show.
I will always treasure the pictures the Dame personalized for me. She even sent a colour Christmas photo to Malaysia one year after I wrote her. What a gracious Dame to her fans!”
Thanks very much Terence Lee. If you have any scans please send them through.
Best wishes to you and all the fans in your beautiful country.
