Shirley Bassey To Perform James Bond Theme At BAFTA Awards: Look + Listen

Dame Shirley Bassey will open the British Academy Film Awards by performing one of her James Bond theme songs.

Celebrating the spy film franchise’s 60th anniversary, the legendary Welsh-born chanteuse will take the stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Sunday (3.13) to perform one of her three 007 themes.

According to the event’s press release “Dame Shirley Bassey will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the James Bond franchise with an exclusive performance of an iconic Bond theme, to be revealed on the night.” “As the only singer to soundtrack multiple Bond films throughout her career, it’s fitting that Dame Shirley’s special performance will mark this milestone year for Britain’s most successful film franchise in unforgettable style.” 

From the 1970s films of the same name, Bassey may sing her first Bond theme from 1964’s Goldfinger, or Diamonds Are Forever, or Moonraker.

The 2022 BAFTAs will be hosted by Rebel Wilson on Sunday 13 March.
