Rebecca Perry created and stars in 'Bond, James Bond: The Music of 007' at Globus Theatre between July 17 and 21.

An exciting July continues at Globus Theatre with the live concert, Bond, James Bond: The Music of 007, created and performed by Rebecca Perry from July 17-21.

From Goldfinger to Goldeneye, Live and Let Die to Skyfall, Bond, James Bond: The Music of 007 highlights the music from these legendary films, features stories about the movies, and celebrates the iconic artists who have performed the opening theme song for James Bond movies since 1962. This concert celebrates all 25 of the James Bond theme songs and the people who sang them, from Dame Shirley Bassey to Tom Jones, Carly Simon to Nancy Sinatra, Sir Paul McCartney to Adele to Madonna and many more – the list of Bond theme song artists is a catalogue of titans of the music industry.

Whatever someone’s musical taste, they will find plenty of songs to enjoy with different genres, whether it’s the contemporary pop of Madonna’s ‘Die Another Day,’ the soulful crooner Matt Monro’s ‘From Russia with Love,’ or the rock-jazz fusion of Jack White and Alicia Keys’ ‘Another Way to Die.

In addition to the music, Perry presents entertaining facts about the songs, the singers, the actors who played Bond, the unforgettable Bond girls, and the legacy of the Bond franchise itself. The show began touring with Smile Theatre in 2022 and had a mainstage performance at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts in 2023.

“We are so excited to bring Bond, James Bond: The Songs of 007 to Globus Theatre,” says Perry. “This show is chock-full of musical history – after all, with 60 years of theme songs, there is plenty here to suit any musical taste.”
