Join award-winning actor and singer, Richard Shelton as he recreates his critically acclaimed show, ‘Sinatra and Me’. Treating audiences to a show of timeless hits, he reveals insights into the life of Sinatra and the ongoing incredible synchronicity between himself and the icon as he recreates and embodies the King of Swing on stage.
Bearing a striking resemblance to Sinatra, hear about British born Shelton’s childhood fascination from a young age. Listen as he shares tales of how he was one of the last people inside Sinatra’s home prior to its demolition, how he discovered that his hands and feet fitted identically into his imprints on the ‘Hollywood Walk of Fame’, and how Sinatra’s own Tuxedo literally walked into his life!
Aside from Shelton’s physical similarities, it is impossible not to be astounded by the uncanny likeness of his voice to Sinatra’s magical tones. His performance on the London Stage as Frank Sinatra in the award winning drama ‘RAT PACK CONFIDENTIAL’ earned him a ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’ nomination and has seen him invited to perform live for Prince Charles and Sir Elton John. He has also recently recorded his latest album ‘An Englishman in Love in LA’ with Sinatra’s own band mates at Capitol studios in LA, using Sinatra’s own microphone.
Featuring ‘New York, New York’, ‘The Lady Is A Tramp’, ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’, ‘My Way’ and many more, join thousands of Sinatra fans from London to New York, Los Angeles to San Diego, on a journey through these much loved hits.
