Bassey Night!

Well at last it’s October 23rd and tonight 3000 fans will greet Dame Shirley as she takes the stage at The Roundhouse in London to sing some of her old songs and preview some new ones from her forthcoming album.  It promises to be an exciting event and for those fans not able to attend they can listen to it live on Radio 2.  Tomorrow night (Saturday 24th October) it will be screened on BBC2 and then via the red button.

I will be travelling down to London with 3 of my very good friends and so I hope to see some of you there.  I may not be able to post anything about the concert until after the weekend but I will do it as soon as I am able.

Enjoy the concert!

Many thanks to Ivan for the photo display.
