  1. In the days when reviewers knew how to describe her appearance `live` in the UK ,SUNDAY TIMES called her “this conquering empress of our age”. That was nearly 40 years ago but it remains as true today. Now in her 60th anniversary year I want at least one last chance to hear this great artist in concert, having seen her so many times between 1972 & 2006.

  2. OH I ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAID TERENCE, THEY JUST DON’T DESCRIBE HER PROPERLY ANYMORE- ESPECIALLY IN THE U.S.A. I REMEMBER ONCE THE “DAILY NEWS” CALLED HER ” THE GREAT SHIRLEY BASSEY” IN A CAPTION. BUT LOST ARE THESE KIND OF PROPER DESCRIPTIONS THESE DAYS ON FOLKS IN THE BUSINESS WHO’VE ONLY BEEN AROUND FOR A MOMENT IN SOME SILLY REALITY SHOW OR ON RECORD/ MOVIE, BUT SHE STILL STANDS ON A TOWER WAY ABOVE THEM. FORTUNATELY I DID GET THE EXPERIENCE OF A TRUE ACT IN HER BETWEEN 1980- 1997. HOPEFULLY THE RUMORS WILL PROVE TRUE ( ESPECIALLY FOR THE NEW FANS AND OLD WHO’VE NEVER SEEN HER LIVE), OF AT LEAST SOME KIND OF MINI WORLD TOUR SHE’S SUPPOSED TO BE UNDERTAKING SOON. BUT YOU KNOW, AS WELL AS I, WHEN IT’S ALL DONE, WE’LL STILL WANT TO SEE HER AGAIN LIVE- SHE’S A WONDERFUL ADDICTION. WHEN YOU WANT TO SEE AN ACT LIKE HERS OVER AND OVER AGAIN, THAT DOESN’T DEPEND ON ALOT OF GIZZMOS AND SPECIAL EFFECTS, BUT RAW TALENT- THAT’S A TRUE ARTIST. SHE’S THE GREATEST!!
