Frankie's back in Vegas -- in new Sinatra tribute show at the Palazzo

Turn back the clock to the '60s and '70s when Frank Sinatra was at the top of his game, and Las Vegas was his personal playground. In what would be his 100th year, Sinatra comes to life in a new show opening this month at the Palazzo Las Vegas.

Bob Anderson, known as a singing impressionist, will perform as Ol' Blue Eyes in "Frank: The Man. The Music." It opens Jan. 24 at The Palazzo Theatre.

The performance started as a one-off show last May and has become a big tribute to Sinatra's musical legacy.

In the show,"Frank" unites Anderson with a 32-piece orchestra to perform songs from the Great American Songbook that Sinatra made famous. Expect to hear "Come Fly With Me," "One for My Baby," "My Heart Stood Still" and many others.

The 90-minute show covers Sinatra's years in the recording studio, on television specials and in personal appearances.

Anderson transforms himself into Sinatra with the help of Kazu Tsuji, an Oscar-nominated makeup artist who aged Brad Pitt in the 2008 movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

And Anderson has his own Sinatra connection too. He moved to Las Vegas from Detroit when he was 22 and got his start performing with daughter Nancy Sinatra in her show at the Sahara hotel-casino.

Anderson went on to have his own showroom and successful singing career in Las Vegas for more than a decade.

"Frank" runs Tuesdays through Thursdays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Fridays at 9 p.m. at The Palazzo Theatre.
