EDMONTON, Sept. 21 /CNW/ - Keystone Entertainment is pleased to announce the legendary Mr. Tony Bennett will return to western Canada for a string of one night only concerts this October.
Tony Bennett is a true icon in the industry, and an artist who moves the hearts and touches the souls of audiences. His career has enjoyed three distinct phases, each of them very successful. In the early '50s, he scored a series of major hits that made him one of the most popular recording artists of the time. In the early '60s, he mounted a comeback as more of an adult-album seller. And from the mid-'80s on, he has achieved renewed popularity with generations of listeners who hadn't been born when he first appeared.
He had his first number one hit (Because of You) in 1951 and now at the age of 83, he has sold millions of records sold worldwide, dozens of platinum and gold albums, and has received 15 Grammy Awards including the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement award. According to National Public Radio's Jazz Profiles, Tony Bennett is 'the best friend the great American songbook has ever had'.
Opening for Mr. Bennett on his Western Canadian tour is Antonia Bennett. Antonia is Tony's youngest daughter and has loved singing since she was a young child. She studied vocal music at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and appears in concert at cabarets and supper clubs around the United States.
As the world's most boyish octogenarian, a vital musical artist at the peak of his powers, Tony Bennett is living proof that, to steal a line from Sinatra, fairy tales can come true if you're young at heart. Don't miss this opportunity to see one of the music's most prolific entertainers live as he stops in Vancouver, Victoria, Regina, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, and Edmonton.
