Has anyone else in popular American music recorded for so long and so successfully as Tony Bennett? He is one of only a handful of artists to have new albums charting in the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and now in the first two decades of the 21st century, as well. In the last 10 years alone, he has sold 10 million records. And over the course of his long career – starting in 1951 with his No. 1 hit version of Hank Williams’ “Cold Cold Heart” – has recorded with everyone from Frank Sinatra to Lady Gaga, racked up 17 Grammy Awards and been honored with a Grammy Lifetime Award.
The folks at Tanglewood are bringing the 88-year-old Bennett to the Koussevitzky Music Shed in Lenox for a concert at 2:30pm on Sunday, August 31. Priced from $25-$97.50, tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10am on Tuesday, April 8.
