Bond fans in for a treat as Sir Roger Moore sets date for Aberdeen

Hollywood legend and James Bond star Sir Roger Moore will shake things up when he visits Aberdeen later in the year.

Best known for his role as the British Secret Service spy Bond, Sir Roger is celebrating 71 years in show business – and is going on tour to celebrate.

Tickets for An Evening with Sir Roger Moore, at His Majesty’s Theatre on Thursday, November 24, go on sale to APA Friends from tomorrow (Wednesday) and are on general sale from Friday.

Joined by biographer Gareth Owen, Sir Roger will discuss his extraordinary life and career, and fans will be treated to inside stories and exclusive anecdotes from his astonishing career that has included the hit TV series The Saint and The Persuaders, plus Hollywood blockbusters and, of course, seven iconic appearances as the world’s most famous spy, 007.

Audiences will also have a unique opportunity to put their own questions to Sir Roger at the end of the show.

APA Communications Officer Erica Banks said: “We’re very excited to announce that the legendary Sir Roger Moore is coming to HMT. He worked as a model and appeared in several films and television dramas before finding fame as Simon Templar in The Saint and Lord Brett Sinclair in The Persuaders.

“Legions of 007 fans followed his portrayal of Bond, and this talk is a fantastic chance to hear fascinating stories from across his career and put questions to Sir Roger himself. Tickets are bound to go quickly for this one-night-only event so don’t miss out.”

Sir Roger mastered the role of 007 from 1973 with Live and Let Die, until he bowed out with A View to a Kill in 1985. By that time he had also starred in The Man with the Golden Gun (1974); The Spy Who Loved Me (1977); Moonraker (1979); For Your Eyes Only (1981) and Octopussy (1983). He was knighted in 2003 for his charity work and remains a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.
