Diamonds Are For Trevor

The one-and-only Dame is channelled by the irrepressible Trevor Ashley, in this spectacular two-act concert. Performing over eighteen of her biggest hits, including Big Spender, Goldfinger, Never, Never, Never, This is My Life, Get the Party Started, History Repeating, and Diamonds are Forever - plus a few songs the Dame has never got around to singing - Ashley will delight you with big gowns, big hair, and an even bigger voice.

Shirley Bassey has become an icon of popular music throughout the past fifty years, and DIAMONDS ARE FOR TREVOR celebrates her musical legacy in a stunning evening. The Welsh-born singer somehow dragged herself from her close to poverty upbringing in Tiger Bay, to become one of the world’s most celebrated concert artists. Using humour, wit and class, Ashley will tell her story like it’s never, never, never been told before.

“He not only nails the style, but does so with feeling in a touching

performance. A master of impersonation.” – Daily Telegraph

Trevor Ashley has headlined two of Australia’s biggest musicals (Hairspray, Priscilla) and played every major cabaret stage and festival across the country with his one man shows. I’m Every Woman sold out six performances at the Sydney Opera House, and Liza (On an E) has garnered standing ovations and unanimous rave reviews at all major festivals. Collaborating again with writer Phil Scott (The Wharf Revue), and for the first time with director Craig Ilott (Smoke & Mirrors), Ashley will be dressed by Oscar, BAFTA, Olivier and Tony award-winning costume designer Tim Chappel(Priscilla).

Joined on stage by a 14 piece orchestra conducted by Daniel Edmonds, take a tour of Shirley’s life, complete with feathers, flash, and frequent diva tantrums. Hilarious, brilliant and often moving, when Ashley goes head to head with the one and only Dame Shirley Bassey, it will prove once and for all that diamonds ARE for Trevor.
