SINATRA CENTENARY CONCERT

Sinatra Centenary celebrates the 100th birthday of the late, great Frank Sinatra with a concert of songs and music made famous by arguably the world’s most-loved singer.

Frank Sinatra’s initial breakthrough came with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and he went solo in the 1940s. His ability to turn lyrics into something personal and meaningful established him a huge following on record and in live performances alongside a successful acting career which included his Oscar-winning role in ‘From Here To Eternity’. Sinatra’s popularity continued across decades and he was affectionately known as ‘The Voice’ by his legion of fans and the entertainment industry alike. Frank Sinatra: singer, actor, superstar.

In a special tribute to the legendary entertainer, the performance will include classic hits the artist made his own such as ‘The Lady Is A Tramp’, ‘Mack The Knife’, ‘My Kind of Town’, ‘Fly Me To The Moon’, ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’, ‘Somethin’ Stupid’ and ‘My Way’. Sinatra, the first recipient of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award stands out front as the greatest song stylist of the 20th century.

Sinatra Centenary will be performed on Saturday 14 November at De Montfort Hall, Leicester; Thursday 26 November at St David's Hall, Cardiff; Friday 27 November at Royal & Derngate, Northampton; Saturday 12 December at the Royal Festival Hall, London and Symphony Hall, Birmingham; Sunday 13 December at The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester Monday 21 December at Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow and Tuesday 22 December.
