    Haven't seen it myself but the reviews I've seen have been very positive on it.

    I'm going to see it in a couple weeks. I've been told
    it's quite good and the performer sounds uncannily
    like Sinatra! Love to hear me some Frank baby while in
    Vegas! He's a bit before my time, but his music
    is romantic and classy! The musicians' union in
    Las Vegas is great and the quality of live music should
    be fantastic! Especially while sipping a Belvedere
    Martini!

    I went to the show a few weeks ago. If you are a Frank Fan, he does a great job. He looks the part, the swagger around the stage, and of course the voice! Kinda takes you through the years of some things that happened in the recording studio's etc....it was pretty interesting. I went on a Thursday night and it was only 1/3 - 1/2 full I would say.....LOTS of empty seats. He sang many of the hits and did a great job of them.

    I went the first night I arrived and I was a little too amped up to really enjoy 90 minutes of the crooning kinda music, so by the end it felt like it was dragging for me. It is romantic, it is classy, the orchestra was fantastic - but I think to really enjoy it, you want to go with an expectation and mindset of a really relaxed evening!

    Count me in, wouldn't miss it.

    I read in the NY Post where Tina Sinatra denies that Frank was the father of Ronan Farrow. No way this kid came from Woody Allen's loins.

    Haven't seen the show but we saw the Panda back in December - same theater -- This has to be the most uncomfortable seating of any theater I have been in Vegas- extremely small seats too. I'm not small but I am not morbidly obese -- I saw some very very big people come in to see that show and wondered how they were going to fit. The arm rests do not move.

    My tix were comp, but I know she said those ones were $81 each. We were on the main floor, but section to the left. There would have been many more sections with higher price point.

    I saw it last month. He was good and the live orchestra was fine. I would have liked to have heard the orchestra featured a bit more. Aside from the 8-bar trombone solo in I've Got You Under My Skin, I don't recall any soloists. Frank always insisted on great musicians, then never let them play.

    A couple of times during the show, he started talking like he was Frank. I mean he told a story about one recording session with Nelson Riddle. It was a little creepy.

    But other than that, I really enjoyed the show. I was able to get tickets at Tix4Tonight. House was only about 2/3 full.

    I saw the show a few weeks ago with comped tix. I enjoyed it! I think I actually enjoyed the Rat Pack is Back show better though. It's pretty cool that the theatre was built on the exact same site as the Copa Room.

    Got our tickets through Travelzoo...$49 each with all fees/taxes included...total $98 which I think is a pretty good deal. I think their promo is still being offered.

    I can't wait until I get to see this show! Can't go next week but I'm planning on it over this Summer - hope it's still running then!

    Wish I had seen this thread before we bought our tickets. We paid $158 for two but I'm a big fan of Sinatra so, hopefully, it will be worth it.

    Yes! As the tix were booked through the Palazzo/Venetian box office you are able to pick your seats...you can also book on-line, again directly on the P/V website. The Travelzoo offer seats are in specific rows. We're about 4 rows in front of the sound console, middle lower section.
