Anthony Dominick Benedetto, better known as Tony Bennett, started his professional singing career in the 1940s. Since then he has amassed several platinum and gold albums as well as 17 Grammy awards. Among his many successful works, he has recorded two “Duets” CDs, marking his 80th and 85th birthdays, which feature a wide range of musicians, from Paul McCartney to Lady Gaga.
In September 2014, Tony Bennett collaborated again with Lady Gaga to produce a new album of jazz standards, titled Cheek to Cheek. Later in December, they appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and started their touring schedule. The duo will perform in a variety of US and European venues, such as Hollywood Bowl and the Royal Albert Hall, through July 2015.
