In April 1964, the Shirley Bassey/Matt Monro/John Barry concert scheduled for The Colston Hall, Bristol, was cancelled due to poor ticket sales.
Even though it was just before Shirley & John's huge success with Goldfinger, it seems incredible that the concert could not be "sold" on their names alone. All were well-known in the UK and all had achieved huge success with hit records, concerts and TV appearances.
Just imagine (if it was still possible) having those three legends playing in concert together today - you wouldn't be able to get a ticket!!
