“Shelton as Sinatra is phenomenal”

Mike Young, BBC

Hollywood, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles, 13 June 1971 – at the age of 55, Frank Sinatra announces he is retiring, bringing to an end his 36-year career in show business.

His retirement concert was a milestone in music history and saw the passing of an icon and a golden era.

The acclaimed 1971 Retirement Concert, faithfully recreated by Richard Shelton, the world’s finest dramatic interpreter of Frank Sinatra, and the Syd Lawrence Orchestra, one of the most enduring and popular UK big bands of all time.

A celebration of some of the greatest songs and the greatest voice of the century – My Way, Angel Eyes, That’s Life, Fly Me to the Moon and many, many more.

Relive the ‘lightning-in-a-bottle’ moments celebrating the greatest voice of the 20th century, in this note-for-note recreation of The Chairman of the Board’s retirement concert.

“I’m for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels.” Frank Sinatra

This concert will have you drinking in every last drop.

Running time: 2 hours, including an interval

“He absolutely inhabits Ol’ Blue Eyes’ persona… right down to every mannerism, facial tic and spoken inflection, nailing Sinatra’s distinctive phrasing and the rich timbre of his singing voice.” 

Adelaide Advertiser

“That baritone and those soulful tunes would make your granny weep.”
The American
