Golden age of Las Vegas comes to Abu Dhabi with magnificent big band show featuring Ol’ Blue Eyes, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr hits
17 April 2012 – Abu Dhabi, UAE: Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) today announced it is bringing to Abu Dhabi for one night only the toe tapping, foxtrotting, ever-popular ‘Rat Pack – Vegas Spectacular’ show to ADNEC on Friday 8 June, with tickets going on sale on Wednesday.
Organised by ADNEC and in the region for the first time, the show is a tribute to the incredible musical gift of three friends, the world famous entertainers, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr and Dean Martin.
Christina Anthony,ADNEC’s Sales Director / Exhibitions said: “The Rat Pack show promises to be a fantastic, memorable night out. Sinatra, Martin and Davis have sung some of the most renowned songs of all time. But what many people don’t know is how they performed together, sharing jokes with each other and the audience, and having unscripted fun. The joy of performance shines through in this show, and it is one not to miss. This is the first show of its kind to come to this region, so I recommend getting tickets early.”
Set in the 1960s at the legendary Las Vegas venue, Sands Hotel, the show recreates the golden era of Las Vegas with three talented performers bringing to life not only their voices, but also their personalities and friendship as they perform some of the trio’s greatest hits. Timeless classics such as Mr Bojangles, Come Fly With Me, One for My Baby,King of the Road, and That’s Amore performed by a traditional big band and accompanied by talented dancing showgirls will keep the audience spellbound throughout the two hour show.
The story of the Rat Pack began in 1960 when Frank Sinatra spontaneously joined Dean Martin for a number onstage at the Sands Casino. This was followed by many more similar incidences, and when one of the stars was booked to perform, the others would frequently turn up. Banners would promote “Dean Martin, Maybe Frank, maybe Sammy”, and sold out shows were filled with Hollywood stare.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, The Rat Pack – Vegas Spectacular gives the audience a chance to experience what it was like to be part of this bygone era of cool cats and glamorous gals, and ADNEC is encouraging people to dress up and look sharp.
Concert-goers can extend the fun into the early hours at Relax@12 at the Aloft Abu Dhabi. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday on BoxOfficeME.com and start from AED125. Hotel packages are also available starting AED 545 including two silver tickets to the show.
Show partners include OSN, Aloft Abu Dhabi, Radio 2, Abu Dhabi Week and Expat Woman. For more information log onto www.facebook.com/adnecliveevents.
