Singer Frank Sinatra is heading to London's West End - seven years after his death
Seven years after his death, music great Frank Sinatra is set for a comeback performance in London. The special show to be held at The London Palladium, beginning in February, will show the singer on stage with live musicians and dancers with the help of modern technology. His performance on screens up to 20 feet high will be accompanied by a live 24-piece orchestra and a company of dancers and singers.
Moreover, the £5m show also will follow Sinatra's life story, featuring songs such as "New York, New York" and "Come Fly With Me." In companion to all, the 1950s film of the singer, which was shot by himself, also will be shown for the first time. Speaking on the project, Sinatra's granddaughter AJ Azzarto commented "I'm delighted to have my grandfather back in London - he loved this place so much."
