Tickets are on sale now for Sinatra Forever: A Tribute to Frank Sinatra, scheduled for 8 p.m. Valentine’s Day 2014 at The University of Texas at El Paso’s Magoffin Auditorium.
Sinatra Forever, presented by Lola Productions, is not an impersonation show, but an interpretation performed by Rick Michel, one of Las Vegas’ premier singers, who literally channels “Old Blue Eyes” through his spot-on vocals of the legendary crooner.
“I think Frank Sinatra was the most articulate of all the pop and standard singers,” Michel said. “He made songs his own by uniquely phrasing the words to wrap around the melody line like no one else before him or since.”
The show will be a love fest of Sinatra’s greatest hits, from “Come Fly with Me,” “That’s Life,” “The Way You Look Tonight” and “One for My Baby” to “Fly Me to the Moon,” “I’ve Got you Under My Skin,” “Summer Wind,” “Strangers in the Night,” and “My Way.”
“I have tried to touch upon all aspects of Mr. Sinatra’s life by choosing the variety of music that best represents his career,” Michel explained. “There is so much material to choose from that I can continue adding new Sinatra songs to my show for years to come and never get to them all.”
Variety magazine has described Michel as “the closest thing to Frank Sinatra we have ever heard.”
Tickets are available at the UTEP Ticket Center at 915-747-5234 or through ticketmaster.com or 800-745-3000. Tickets are $38 plus service fees.
