“Sinatra at Carnegie Hall” airs Saturday, November 28 at 9:30 p.m.

In 1980, Frank Sinatra performed a two-week engagement at Carnegie Hall, which at the time set a record for the venue by selling out each show in just one day. The performances followed the release of that year’s Trilogy, Sinatra’s ambitious triple-album comeback that featured “New York, New York.” This concert was recorded on June 25, 1980.

Watch Frank Sinatra perform “The Lady is a Tramp” from that concert.

    As a life long Frank Sinatra fan, I just saw Sinatra on PBS at Carnegie Hall.
    So, naturally, I ordered the DVD. This was the best addition to my FS collection..ever. God Bless ya Frank! This world was so much better with ya and would be so much better with ya if you were still with us. Pat Hook, Albuquerque, NM

    I am listening to the full program. The choice of material is impeccable and the Sinatra insouciant style is there. Unfortunately Sinatra’s voice is not up to it. He almost croaks at the end of a lyric. Listen without an awe for the first king.
