Tony Bennett heads to Beau Rivage Resort & Casino

26 August 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Beau Rivage Resort & Casino presents 19-time Grammy Award-winning musician Tony Bennett, whose music spans more than six decades, on Sunday, 6 October, at Beau Rivage Theater as part of his I Left My Heart Tour.

At the age of 93, Bennett is not slowing down and his latest recording, with long-time friend and musical colleague, Diana Krall, “Love is Here to Stay” topped the jazz charts upon its debut and was recently nominated for a Grammy Award. The album celebrates the music of the Gershwins and includes the jazz standard, “Fascinating Rhythm,” which Bennett and Krall perform as a duet. The inclusion of the song on the new album, was the impetus for a Guinness World Record title for Bennett, who in 1949, under his stage name of Joe Bari at the time, made his very first recording of the Gershwin standard.

In 2017, the Library of Congress presented Bennett with The Gershwin Prize, marking the first time that an interpretive singer has been honored. His signature song, “I Left My Heart In San Francisco,” was inducted into the Library’s National Recordings Registry in 2018.

With worldwide record sales in the millions, and dozens of platinum and gold albums to his credit, Bennett is a musician who touches the hearts and souls of audiences with his legendary vocals and charming stage presence. His long list of achievements includes 19 Grammy Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. His signature tunes, such as “Steppin’ Out With My Baby” and “I Left My Heart In San Francisco” form part of the fabric of American music culture.

His daughter, Antonia Bennett will open the performance with a collection of jazz/pop standards. Antonia Bennett is a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music.
