The Philly POPS announced today that due to record ticket sales, it is adding a fourth performance of Sinatra: A Centennial Celebration on Sunday, October 11 at 7:30p.m. in the Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall.
The POPS typically hold three performances per concert series – Friday evening and Saturday and Sunday matinees. This is the first time in years that an additional show has been added.
“Philadelphia loves Frank Sinatra,” said Frank Giordano, President and CEO of the Philly POPS. “The POPS are thrilled by the excitement over our Sinatra concerts and proud to perform the Chairman of the Board’s beloved music.”

About Sinatra Weekend
POPS Music Director Michael Krajewski will lead the 65-piece POPS orchestra in four Sinatra: A Centennial Celebration concerts commemorating the “Chairman of the Board” on the 100th anniversary of his birthday. Hearing the Philly POPS, accompanied by acclaimed singer Michael Andrew, perform Come Fly With Me, I’ve Got You Under My Skin, New York, New York, One for My Baby and Strangers in the Night will whisk audiences back to the time when Ol’ Blue Eyes was King.
The ‘Rat Pack’ reminiscing continues Saturday evening with a special one-night-only event: Deana Martin Live in Concert, backed by her band, in the Kimmel Center’s intimate Perelman Theater. Deana will perform classics made famous by her legendary father, Dean Martin, including Memories Are Made of This and That’s Amore.
Following that performance, the Prime Rib on Locust Street will be transformed into Atlantic City’s storied 500 Club where Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and friends performed and partied in the 1940s-1960s. Limited to one hundred guests, the 500 Club redux will include further performances from both Michael Andrew and Deana Martin in an intimate supper club setting.
