Es kann doch nicht sein, dass dieser Tag heute so einfach zu Ende geht und niemand etwas zu diesem historischen Datum schreibt!

Live, from New York, the city whose landmarks are familiar all over the world, the world center for shipping, transportation, communications, finance, fashions and above all entertainment. A city that pulsates always because of the millions of people who live here, work here, visit here. And in the heart of the metropolis, the great arena: Madison Square Garden, which has created and housed so many champions and which is why tonight from the Garden the most enduring champion of them all: Frank Sinatra, comes to the entire western hemisphere live with The Main Event - Frank Sinatra in Concert!
Madison Square Garden, October 13 1974. Jam-packed with twenty thousand people plus - just people, people from all walks of life, people who are young and people who are old, here to see, hear, pay homage to a man who has bridged four generations and somehow never found a gap.
Hello again everyone, I'm Howard Cosell, and I've been here so many times and in a curious way, this event, live, with the king of entertainment, carries with it the breathless excitement and anticipation of a heavyweight championship fight. Celebrities are here in profusion, one after another. Rex Harrison! Professor Higgins, if you will. Carol Channing - hello, Dolly. Walter Cronkite, Mr. Believable, and of course the great romantic hero Robert Redford, but here, coming through the same tunnel that so many champions have walked before, the great man, Frank Sinatra, who has the phrasing, who has the control, who understands the composers, who knows what losing means as so many have, who made the great comeback, who now stands still, enduring, on top of the entertainment world.
Ladies and gentlemen, from here on in it's Frank Sinatra!
31 Jahre Main Event - und immer noch einzigartig!
I get no kick in a plane.
I shouldn't care for those nights in the air
That the fair Mrs. Lindbergh goes through
But I get a kick out of you.
