When you think Sinatra, you think of the greatest music ever performed. People have marked milestones in their lives to songs made famous by the Chairman of the Board.
2015 marks a very special year, as the most loved entertainer of all time, Frank Sinatra, will be celebrated around the world with a series of commemorative centennial events. As a part of the celebrations, Frank Sinatra Jr. will perform a series of very special UK concerts performing the music of undoubtedly one of the most significant artists of all time. The concerts will take place at the Manchester Bridgewater Hall on 27th June, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on 28th June, Birmingham Symphony Hall on 30th June and London’s Royal Albert Hall on 2nd July.
Frank Sinatra Jr. commented, “Performing these shows in the UK, which was always such a special place for my father, is very exciting, especially because of this very special year. The music and the memories have touched so many people around the world; to be able to bring these songs back to the stage, share my personal stories of my father, alongside archive footage and pictures is a real honor”.
Expect to enjoy songs such as ‘Strangers in the Night’, 'Foggy Day in London Town', ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and ‘New York New York’ featuring some of the finest musicians in the country, many of whom have been traveling with Frank Jr. for over 30 years.
While putting his own career on hold, in 1988, at his father’s request, Frank Jr. served as conductor and musical director for his father’s final years of live performing, earning him the respect of those in the audience for the devotion and skill he brought to the job.
As an accomplished artist in his own right, Frank Sinatra, Jr. found himself catapulted into a position he never sought but must have surely contemplated. The songs of Sinatra need to be sung and Frank Jr. has inherited that honor as a son and performer, as well as the greatest living authority on Sinatra songs, who is also the one vocalist most qualified to sing them.
Frank Sinatra Jr. pays homage to his father, the singer, the man, and the music that defines the Sinatra legend. He will keep the memories alive and create new ones with this unique multimedia show taking in archive audiovisual material. In stories, photos, videos and songs, Frank Jr. will deliver first hand recollections of life on and off stage with his famous father, as he performs the music alongside the orchestra.
