Here's a HOT ticket! Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett will bring their exciting “Cheek To Cheek” Tour to Ravinia for two evenings, Friday and Saturday, June 26 and 27 at 8 pm. I'm pretty sure this Ravinia gig will be a sell-out, so I wanted you to know about this NOW!
Last month their "Cheek to Cheek" collaboration was honored with a Grammy (Tony’s 18th!) for “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.” It was released to rave reviews on September 23, 2014, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 album charts and was named Billboard’s #1 Jazz Album of the Year. Whew!
The duo will be accompanied by their musical friends, too. Tony will bring his quartet-- musical director and pianist Mike Renzi, guitarist Gray Sargent, bassist Marshall Wood and drummer Harold Jones. Lady Gaga’s will bring her quintet--trumpeter Brian Newman, pianist Alex Smith, drummer Paul Francis, bassist Scott Ritchie and saxophonist Steve Kortya.
This will be Tony’s 28th performance at Ravinia where he has been playing to sold-out crowds since first headlining there in 1984. The 88-year-old music icon is riding a brand new wave in his 65-year career (!!) as he continues to pursue the art of excellence with the captivating 28-year-old Lady Gaga by his side. I love this dynamic duo!
Tickets will go on sale for Ravinia donors on March 10; and to the general public on April 28. (Pavilion: $195.00/$180, Lawn: $49.00) For tickets and more info, click here or call (847) 266-5100. (Ravinia is located at the intersection of Lake-Cook and Green Bay Roads in Highland Park, IL.)
