Much-loved international singing star Jack Jones returns to the UK for a rare visit next month - and he will be stopping off at St George’s Hall, Bradford on Wednesday, February 10.

Back for a short tour, Jack will be making his first visit to the UK since 2013 and the show promises to be rare treat.

Backed by a big band, he will celebrate the music of one of the greatest singers of all time – Frank Sinatra.

The tour dates coincide with the release of Jack’s new album ‘Seriously Frank’, celebrating the centenary of Sinatra’s birth.

With 13 tracks, a 22-piece orchestra and piano from Dave Grusin, ‘Seriously Frank’ combines some classic numbers with lesser known songs, all arranged and conducted by Patrick Williams.

Jack Jones has 60 albums to his credit and has won two Grammies, five nominations and numerous other awards. He has performed at two Royal Variety Shows and has his own Hollywood Walk of Fame star.

Jack’s respect for a well crafted song has led to him recording some of the greatest ballads of all time but his career has spanned it all – pop, jazz, musical theatre, film.

He is, as Mel Torme put it, ‘the greatest ‘pure’ singer in the world’.

At the age of 77, it is the perfect time for one legend to pay tribute to another.
