Richard Shelton: Frank Sinatra – The Retirement Concert

with the Syd Lawrence Orchestra

Fri 3 May 2024

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.

Sinatra. An icon. A life.


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.

Including All or Nothing at All, That’s Life, and My Way – no other artist summed up their life by a song title so succinctly or made such sense of what it is just to be alive.


“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.


'Richard Shelton is remarkable, completely transforming into the great man so you would believe he was back in the room with you!'


'His voice wraps you up. It helps that the Sinatra songbook contains pure gold. But, again, the veracity of Shelton’s flinty performance adds a fillip to his interpretations of the music.'
