San Francisco pays tribute to iconic crooner and SF ambassador Tony Bennett with a public unveiling of Tony Bennett Way, the renamed 900 block of Mason Street in front of the historic Fairmont Hotel where Bennett first sang his famous homage to the city, I Left My Heart in San Francisco, in 1961.
John Murray Productions was honored to work with e2k to provide the scenic environment for this historic event, which included a main stage featuring a large printed backdrop, custom drapery treatment, and street sign prop, as well as a custom accessibility ramp so all visitors could make their way to the bronze Tony Bennett statue for a photo op. The look was elegant & classic, fitting of the 91 year old singer so beloved by the City. Additionally, the event highlighted world class entertainment, including a Tony Bennett impersonator that rappelled the hotel facade to kick off the ceremony.
