“This show is an amazing journey through Frank Sinatra’s music, cast with some of today’s greatest artists,” said three-time GRAMMY winner Don Was, music director for the concert. “In paying homage to Mr. Sinatra’s music and treating his legacy with the utmost respect, most of the artists will sing arrangements as originally crafted for Mr. Sinatra by giants Don Costa, Gordon Jenkins, Quincy Jones, and Nelson Riddle. It’s going to be an incredible show!”
