Since the inaugural event in 1974, the Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival has attracted the biggest stars from the world of music to the Principality of Monaco. Names such as James Brown, Joe Cocker, Ray Charles, Liza Minnelli, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Johnny Hallyday and Grace Jones are among the long list of stars to have performed in the beautiful Salle des Etoiles at the Summer Sporting Club on Avenue Princess Grace in Monaco. In more recent years Alicia Keys, Robbie Williams and Rihanna have joined this list as the festival continues to wow crowds year after year.

The 2015 Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival kicked off with an amazing one off concert performed by Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. Later in the evening, she performed an impromptu set in the American Bar of the Hotel de Paris, propelling her into the rich history of one of the world’s most glamorous hotel bars where the walls are still adorned by photographs of the “rat pack” days when Sinatra and Co. were often to be found at the piano. The elegant Salle des Etoiles is the setting for each summer concert, where guests enjoy champagne and fabulous fine-dining before being entertained by the stars. Often under the stars too, as the name suggests the sliding roof of the Salle des Etoiles is regularly open during dinner, and always for the fireworks spectaculars which take place throughout the summer.
