Bennet’s last NYC performance
Battling with Alzheimer’s disease since 2016, Bennet’s 95th birthday will be the same night the pair debut their new album.

According to a press release for the event, these summer gigs may be the last for the Grammy winner in his home city. “Set appropriately at a venue that Tony has enjoyed a multi-decade run of sold-out shows.”
The Tony Bennett Quartet, the Brian Newman Quintet and an orchestra conducted by Michael Bearden will accompany the pair on stage- set to make it a memorable show, not just for Bennet but for the fans too.
