Review

She may not be at the height of her powers in 1979 (the 70s was a troubled decade), but Dusty is still magnificent in this rare public concert, introduced by Russell Harty and in the presence of Princess Margaret.

Sky couldn’t confirm whether they’ll show the cut DVD version, which omits Dusty’s address to her throng of gay fans: “It’s nice to see the royalty is not confined to the royal box tonight.” HRH was not amused, and sent Dusty a typed apology she had to sign and post back. “Near-sighted as a bat”, Dusty is hilarious in the final number, interacting cautiously with the baying mob, before haring offstage in panic.

Summary

A 1979 concert by the pop singer recorded at the famous London venue in the presence of Princess Margaret. Featuring performances of tracks including I Close My Eyes and Count to Ten, All I See Is You, Son of a Preacher Man and You Don't Have to Say You Love Me.
