Tony Bennett
Radio City Music Hall
1260 6th Ave
Friday October 6

It’s no secret that the greatest of living American popular singers is at an all-time high, and this is just about a year after celebrating his 90th birthday in 2016. Cheek to Cheek, his 2014 album of duets with Lady Gaga, was the biggest-selling album of his career thus far, while The Silver Lining, an all Jerome Kern set done in tandem with the brilliant pianist Bill Charlap, was the best purely jazz album he’s made since his classic collaborations with Bill Evans 40 years ago.  Whether sharing the stage with his cultural progeny or going it solo, Tony Bennett continues to show us all how it’s done - and proves over and over that life begins at 90. (As an added bonus, his talented daughter Antonia opens the show and duets with him on Stephen Sondheim’s “Old Friend.”)
