Dancers and a live orchestra will accompany a video projection of the singer. The show uses home movies of Sinatra from the 1950s — restored, colorized and projected onto screens in the theater.
"It's as if you are watching the concert because you are seeing footage of him in his prime, heard as if he is performing in front of you," said the singer's granddaughter, A.J. Azzarto.
"It's not at all ghostly in any way," she added. "Even if it's in an arena it's as if he's singing to you personally."
The show is scheduled to open in February at the London Palladium, where Sinatra made his European debut in 1950. An earlier version ran at New York's Radio City Music Hall (search) in 2003.
