Celebrating Shirley Bassey’s 80th birthday, Trevor Ashley returns to Melbourne with his acclaimed two-act show for one Gala evening at Hamer Hall.
Hot on the stilettos of a sold out Sydney Opera House performance the three-time Helpmann Award nominee will perform dozens of Shirley’s classic hits accompanied John Foreman conducting a stunning 24-piece orchestra and dazzling costumes by Academy Award® winner Tim Chappel as he tells the Shirley Bassey rags to riches story like it’s never, never, never been told before.
Along with all the sequins, jewels, big gowns and bigger hair, expect to hear 'Big Spender', 'Goldfinger', 'Never, Never, Never', 'This is My Life', 'History Repeating' and 'Diamonds are Forever' – plus a few songs the Dame has never got around to singing!
As well as major musicals (including Hairspray and Priscilla), Ashley has played every major cabaret stage and festival across the country, selling out numerous venues, garnering standing ovations and unanimous rave reviews.
Take a tour of Shirley’s life, complete with feathers, flash, and frequent diva tantrums. Hilarious, brilliant and often moving, when Ashley takes on the one and only Dame Shirley Bassey, it will prove once and for all that diamonds really are for Trevor.
