Bassey to sing at Beatles tribute
Dame Shirley Bassey will be the headlining act at The Beatles' 50th anniversary concert.
The Welsh diva will be joined by Tony Christie, Beverley Knight and Darius Campbell at the star-studded spectacular celebrating the songs of the legendary band, which have been given a classical twist.
The exclusive show, held at the Royal Albert Hall on October 28, will feature the 70-piece Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and a 100 member-strong choir.
Broadcaster and Beatles aficionado Mike Read will present a narrative backdrop to the nostalgic philharmonic tribute, taking the audience on a trip through The Beatles' musical heritage.
Proceeds from the event will go to charity, including The Noah's Ark Appeal in aid of the Children's Hospital of Wales, Community Chest Fund of Malta and Nordoff Robbins.
