Frank's daughter pays tribute to her daddy at the Meltdown gig...
NANCY SINATRA made a rare UK live appearance in LONDON yesterday (June 20) as part of the Morrissey-curated MELTDOWN festival at the ROYAL FESTIVAL HALL.
The 64-year-old star, who originally left the music business in 1972 to spend more time raising her family, was also celebrating 38 years since her first UK Number One single.
Opening with ‘Bang Bang’, the song featured on the soundtrack to the Quentin Tarantino movie ‘Kill Bill’, she went on to play her ‘60s classics like ‘How Does That Grab You Darlin?’, ‘Lightning’s Girl’ and the classic James Bond theme ‘You Only Live Twice’. Her best-known song, ‘These Boots Are Made For Walking’, provoked mass dancing in the aisles when Nancy walked out into the audience to greet her fans.
Dedicating an emotional rendition of the song ‘Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad’ – written by U2‘s Bono and The Edge – to her late father Morrissey, Sinatra seemed on the verge of tears, joking that her mentor Elvis Costello had told her that she wasn’t allowed to cry.
The song is to be taken from Sinatra’s forthcoming album, ‘To Nancy With Love’, on which she collaborates with the U2 men, as well as Jarvis Cocker and [a][/a].
‘To Nancy With Love’ is set for release in the Autumn.
