Frank Sinatra played a New Year's Eve concert on December 31, 1975 at Chicago Stadium in Chicago, Illinois. The accompanying orchestra was conducted by Bill Miller. Chicago Stadium was an indoor arena that opened in 1929 and closed in 1994. The Stadium was home to the Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL from 1929 to 1994, and the NBA's Chicago Bulls from 1967 to 1994. It was the site of the first NFL payoff game in 1932, as well as both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions in 1932 and 1944. Sinatra, one of the most popular musicians of the twentieth century, was nicknamed "Ol' Blue Eyes" for his deep blue eyes. The setlist for the 1975 New Year's Eve concert included the classic "Ole Man River" and covers of The Beatles' "Something" and "You are the Sunshine of my Life" by Stevie Wonder.
