In 1992 Dame Shirley Bassey did a charity concert for the Ronald McDonald Foundation at the Kurhaus in Scheveningen (The Netherlands). Here you can listen to that superb concert that was broadcast on Dutch radio only.

2. New York medley;

3. Something;

4. Kiss me honey, honey kiss me;

5. Without you;

6. Almost like being in love;

7. Never, never, never;

8. For once in my life;

9. Big spender;

10. Hey Jude;

11. This is my life;

Shirley Bassey, who is also a grandmother, payed a visit to the home for sick children in Utrecht. Second from the left is Pascal Rijnders, head of the Ronald McDonald Children’s Fund.
In the bar area of the restaurant is a photo gallery with world famous stars who performed at the Kurhaus in the past.
They include Edith Piaf, Jacques Brell, Count Basie, Neil Sedaka, Yves Montand and many more.
And of course there was a beautiful photograph of Dame Shirley Bassey placed high on the wall between other photographs. (Special thanks to Rien)
