The world’s most critically acclaimed tribute to the music of James Bond is coming to East Sussex next year for a spectacular concert experience, compered by former Miss Moneypenny Caroline Bliss.
On Sunday 22 September, The De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea will be transformed for one evening by Q The Music, who since their formation in 2004, have earned critical acclaim and recognition by key members of the James Bond community.
The show has become synonymous with top events around the world. In 2017 they were asked to perform at Sir Roger Moore’s official memorial event at Pinewood Studios. In 2019 they performed at the 50th anniversary gala for On Her Majesty’s Secret Service with George Lazenby, held at Piz Gloria in the Swiss Alps. Every Bond fan club around the world recognises them as the finest performances of the songs since the originals.
The show, known for its stirring emotional and adrenaline-fuelled performances, features all of the Bond songs such as Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, Live and Let Die and Nobody Does It Better performed by musicians taken from the UK’s leading orchestras, sessions and shows.
Caroline Bliss, who played Miss Moneypenny in The Living Daylights and Licence To Kill, will guide audience members through the concert as compere, sharing anecdotes about her time working in this legendary series.
Edward Kilroy of Coastal Events said
“As a lifelong James Bond fan, hosting this concert at the beautiful De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill is truly a privilege, one that I am overjoyed to be a part of. Since the release of Dr. No in 1962, the iconic soundtracks of 007 have formed a huge part of British culture, so many of us have grown up with these distinctive scores through the years in a film franchise that has been celebrated through generations.
This particular experience will bring you as close to feeling inside of a James Bond movie as you can get. To have a Miss Moneypenny compèring alongside world-class musicians and stunning singers, recognised by icons within the James Bond industry, is so exciting. I’m already counting down the days until this remarkable event.”
Sir Roger Moore’s Office said
“When our thoughts turned to planning Sir Roger Moore’s memorial event at Pinewood Studios in October 2017, we knew James Bond would play a significant part and one of our first calls was to Q The Music. They helped make a wonderful day an extraordinary day.”
