  1. I HAVE THE ORIGINAL PROGRAMME , FROM THIS TIME PIETER,
    AT THE BIRMINGHAM HIPPODROME, 1958, IN MY ARCHIVE
    AT THAT TIME, IT SAYS,
    STARRING [ BRITAIN’S SEPIA SONGSTRESS ] SHIRLEY BASSEY ]
    I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE IT MYSELF, BUT THE BALCONY SEATS
    WERE 1/6 PENCE [ OLD CURRENCY] 7& A HALF PENCE IN TODAY’s PRICE,S, THE DEAREST PRICE IN A PRIVATE BOX WAS
    £ 1 – 12 & A HALF PENCE, [ TWICE NIGHTLY ] YES ,,[ TWICE NIGHTLY. ]
    SO IN 1958 YOU COULD SEE THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER IN THE WORLD FOR AS LITTLE AS 3/ SHILLINGS [ 15 PENCE ] LIVE
    ON STAGE, NOT ONCE BUT TWICE,[ 6.15PM & AGAIN AT 8.30PM.
    I WAS 18 & SHIRLEY 21,I HAVE BEEN SO FORTUNATE TO HAVE BEEN AROUND FROM SO EARLY IN HER CAREER , & THE MEMORIES I HAVE,WHEN SOME DSB FANS SADLY HAVE NEVER SEEN HER LIVE IN CONCERT.
    I DO HOPE THIS COMMENT ,
    THOUGH VERY LONG IS OF INTEREST TO YOU, PIETER & THE MANY DAME SHIRLEY BASSEY FANS WORLD WIDE, .
