"The King of Kool: Best of Dean Martin Variety Show"
Dean Martin hosted his hit variety show for 10 years. Fans of the show knew that Dean never rehearsed, and he read his lines off of cue cards. Thus, you never knew what would happen.

Some of the guests were Sid Caesar, Mickey Rooney, Bill Cosby, Bob Newhart, Jackie Mason, Liberace, Ella Fitzgerald, The Supremes and more.

The four singers that comprise "Il Divo" are Carlos Marin, David Miller, Urs Buhler and Sebastien Izambard. They blend their beautiful voices together and sing all type of songs. The group has sold millions of records, and will be appearing at the Rosemont Theatre in August. This concert featured "Mama," "Somewhere," "All By Myself," "Nella Fantasia," "My Way," "Unbreak My Heart" and many more songs.
