SF pays tribute to iconic crooner and San Francisco 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 the 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 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.
