Living Legend Tony Bennett Sings At The Bowl
Fall under the spell of the most charming crooner ever to step foot onto the Hollywood Bowl stage this Summer! That's right, living legend Tony Bennett and his smooth-as-honey stylings are topping the historic venue's Jazz at the Bowl series bill and bringing along a rich musical history that spans over seven decades, 50 million in record sales, nineteen Grammy Awards, a Lifetime Achievement Award, a Gershwin Prize from the Library of Congress and two Emmy Awards.
A self proclaimed 'tenor who sings like a baritone', Bennett rose to prominence after fighting in the Second World War. As a US Army infantryman, he was stationed in Germany and assigned to a special services band unit that would entertain occupying American forces. Upon his return to the states, he signed with Columbia Records and began recording. His bel canto training opened him up to both the pop standard and American Songbook repertoires. Don't miss career-defining hits like 'Because Of You' and 'I Left My Heart In San Francisco with live accompaniment by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.
