Burlesque Sleeve

Referred to elsewhere by Carol - but can you please tell us the venue for those superb gatefold photos for Burlesque. I've always wondered.

Thanks in advance. ;D

I may be wrong, but I think it's Wilton's Music Hall, in South London:

It featured in a series of 'Restoration' a year or two back

Thanks for that very interesting link Fi.  :)

It certainly looks very much like the pictures on the Burlesque sleeve.

It would be a great pity if such an architectural gem were lost forever.

It  is not actually Wiltons that it is used for Burlesque.    I always assumed that it was until I went there.     It is actually Bush Hall.    It is mentioned on the Bellowhead site.

No - the photoshoot for Burlesque was shot at Wiltons Music Hall.

The album launch gig was, however, at the (distinctly less glamourous) Bush Hall in Shepherds Bush.
