Al Martino Tickets for Sale
Al Martino, who was born Alfred Cini, made his singing debut over 40 years ago in Philadelphia with the hit song Here In My Heart. Right away the song sold over one million copies worldwide, and became the first American artist to hit number one in the British "single" charts during 1952, consequently putting him into the Guinness Book of World Records. In his earlier years, Martino worked hard in the family's construction business, but in the evenings, he used what little free time he had, to perform in clubs and bars of his neighborhood. After winning the first prize in Arthur Godfrey's "Talent Scout Show," in 1950, Martino landed a much sought-after record deal with Capitol Records. "Spanish Eyes" was one of Marino's most successful hits, and in 1965, the song reached number 15 on the British single charts. In 1976, Martino's second hit, " Volare", reached number one on the Italian and Belgium charts, and was in the Top Ten in Spain, Holland and France, as well as in many other European countries. In 1972, he played the role of Johnny Fontane in Frances Ford Coppola's epic film The Godfather.

As a result, he gained the respect of his fellow actors, which included Marlon Brando and Robert Duvall. Martino also sang the film's title score, "The Love Theme from The Godfather." Al Martino is presently in the center of beginning his second career, which has already taken off with great force in the European market. Since the fall of 1993, Al Martino's songs have flooded the radio and television airwaves in Germany, and he is always selling out concerts throughout the continent. On March 28, 2003 in Mannheim, Germany, Al was given a very special award by "Radio Regenbogen (Rainbow)". He received the prestigious 'Lifetime Entertainment 2003' award.
