Gold, gowns and glamour. Champagne, charisma and camp. Lamé, luscious and loud. Be-sequinned, be-jewelled... Bassey

He's garnered standing ovations and unanimous rave reviews all around the country, and now the irrepressible Trevor Ashley returns to Darwin Festival. This time he's channelling that one-and-only Dame, Shirley Bassey, in this spectacular, over-the-top concert extravaganza.

Diamonds are for Trevor celebrates the musical legacy of one of the world's most acclaimed concert artists in a stunning evening of song and storytelling accompanied by members of the Darwin Symphony Orchestra. Using humour, wit and class, Ashley will tell Shirley Bassey's story like it's never, never, never been told before. And to top it all off he'll be dressed by Oscar, BAFTA, Olivier and Tony Award winning costume designer Tim Chappel (Priscilla). Fabulous!

Under the stars, Ashley performs Bassey's biggest and best hits, plus a few show-stoppers the Dame should have sung.
