Sinatra at the London Palladium

No telly tonight as I've been bullied by my mum into buying tickets for Sinatra at the London Palladium. I'm not paying but I'm doing all the donkey work.

As far as I can deduce from the description of the show, there will be a sepia hologram of Frank at the front of the stage, performing his usual dance steps and body gyrations, while behind him Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra will be belting out Frank's classics in their own inimitable style.

My mum's been a Frank fan since she was a bobby soxer aged 2, which means she's waited 72 years for this moment and I feel proud to have been able to pay her back in a tiny way for the years of toil and hardship I've put her through.

Start spreading the news...


  1. How was Frank? Do we get a follow-up post?

  2. It's not until March but I presume he's in rehearsals as we speak.

    I'm not going but I'll post my mum and step-dad's review on here then.

    Unless they do it themselves which is possible as they've now got a computer...with a lead missing.
