Last night Astrid and I saw Dame Shirley Bassey at the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg and it was just spectacular. Not only did Dame Shirley get a standing ovation at the her entrance and exit to the the stage but after EVERY song! Dame Shirley got very emotional because of the wonderful reception she got and she promised to COME BACK! Both Astrid and I were interviewed by the German radio station NDR-2.
The voice was in perfect shape and she looked fabulous of course wearing the white gown she also wore for Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee concert.
She did 5 songs: Goldfinger, Something, Diamonds Are Forever, The Lady Is a Tramp & I Am What I Am.
The orchestra was fabulous and it must have been great for her to perform with such a large group of great musicians.
Here are some pictures Astrid made from yesterday’s performance.
