    Three-time James Bond title theme performer Dame Shirley Bassey has been lined up to perform at the 2009 BBC Electric Proms.

    The BBC News reports that Bassey will be performing alongside the BBC Concert Orchestra at the London Roundhouse on Friday, 23 October. It will be her only scheduled live performance of the year.

    The Welsh singer is planning to include several of her classic songs in the performance as well as debut some of the new tracks from her forthcoming album, The Performance (which is produced by current 007 composer David Arnold and includes a composition from John Barry and Don Black amongst many other notable names in the music business).

    ‘What I’m most looking forward to at the BBC Electric Proms is performing songs from my new album The Performance for the first time—it really will be a special moment for me,’ she was quoted as saying.

    The show will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 2.

    The Performance album is due for release on 9 November and can currently be pre-ordered online:
