‘Sinatra’ The Man & His Music will open at the London Palladium on 20th July 2015 (previews from 10th July) for a limited season until 10th October 2015.
The show runs 65 years since Frank Sinatra’s first ever European concert took place at the London Palladium in July 1950.
‘Sinatra’ The Man & His Music is the only UK production with the endorsement and support of the Sinatra family and produced in association with Frank Sinatra Enterprises.
In the centenary year of the legendary entertainer’s birth, this extraordinary new multi-media show features ultra-rare and original master recordings of Frank Sinatra. Using cutting edge technology and never-before-seen performance footage, the show takes us on a journey through Sinatra’s life, told by the man himself alongside personal family photographs and film.
Audiences will experience the music of the most iconic voice of a generation, including his greatest hits such as Come Fly With Me, Fly Me To The Moon, New York, New York and My Way. Accompanied by a 24-piece orchestra and a company of 20 dancers and singers, the show is a celebration of Frank Sinatra’s life and times; to many the world’s greatest entertainer.
Frank Sinatra Jr said: “2015 is the year of my father’s centennial. One of the most exciting events we have planned is this London show. My father first played the Palladium in July 1950, so it is fitting that the show will debut in the historic venue, as London was one of his favourite cities in the entire world. We hope his many British fans will come and celebrate with us as the magic Ol’ Blue Eyes will soon be back in town.”
Karl Sydow, the show’s producer, said: “I’m delighted to be presenting, with the cooperation of the Sinatra family and FSE, the official stage production for the centenary year of Frank Sinatra’s birth. The production will play the leading role in what I am sure will be a year full of tributes to Sinatra. This new production will take full advantage of the latest technology, bringing the Sinatra magic into the theatre in a way that has never been seen before.“
