Sinatra Forever is a concert that pays homage to perhaps the greatest singer of all time.  This is not an impersonation show, but an interpretation performed by Rick Michel, one of Las Vegas' premier singers and impersonators, who literally channels "Old Blue Eyes" through his spot-on vocals of the legendary crooner!  The show features some of Sinatra's greatest hits, from "Come Fly with Me,"  "That's Life,"  and "One for My Baby" to "Fly to the Moon," "Strangers in the Night," and "My Way."

Tickets:  $20, $23, & $26.
