This was just one of those amazing nights where you realise that you are in the presence of a legend. She is timeless and her show was supurb from the opening of I'm Still Here to the encore of Mein Herr.

The show was packed with all her hits, the wonderful number Everything Changes from her last show mimi le duck and the best legs in the business. A couple of issues with the words, but hey she is 80! She gives so much to every number, and the reception at the end was astounding but well deserved.

She is only at the Shaw Theatre until Saturday, and I really would urge everyone to go and see this amazing artist. You don't get many stars like Eartha Kitt, and from the brilliant reception at the end of the concert I wasn't alone in thinking how great she was. I know the remaining concerts are very full, but do get the chance to get a ticket if you can.

She did a snippet of Where Is My Man, no Cha Cha Heels, and it was full. A friend has managed to get tickets for Friday in the back row, which isn't too far as the space is good. But the remaining shows are very full already.

Eartha Kitt has more personality and artistry in her little fingers than all the other younger female singers put together.

She had added another performance on Saturday 17th at 3pm to cope with demand. Went on sale yesterday, so there may be some tickets left for that.

I have one spare ticket - 7th row centre - for her final show - Saturday 17 February at 8pm.  See my listing on ebay item number 150092755320.

Thanks
