Nineteen time Grammy Award-winning musician Tony Bennett brings his “I Left My Heart Tour” with special guest Antonia Bennett to Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood on Sunday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m. Hard Rock Live, Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood’s new entertainment venue, is part of the $1.5 billion property expansion that will be completed October 2019.
Having just turned 93, Bennett is not slowing down and his latest recording, with long-time friend and musical colleague, Diana Krall, “Love is Here to Stay” topped the jazz charts upon its debut and was nominated for a Grammy. The album celebrates the music of the Gershwins and includes the jazz standard, “Fascinating Rhythm,” which Bennett and Krall perform as a duet. The inclusion of the song on the new album, was the impetus for a Guinness World Record title for Tony Bennett, who in 1949, under his stage name of Joe Bari at the time, made his very first recording of the Gershwin standard.
With worldwide record sales in the millions, and dozens of platinum and gold albums to his credit, Bennett is a musician who touches the hearts and souls of audiences with his legendary vocals and charming stage presence. His long list of achievements, spanning over 60 years, comprises of 19 Grammy awards, including the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, making him a true international treasure. His signature tunes, such as “Steppin’ Out With My Baby” and “I Left My Heart In San Francisco” form part of the fabric of American music culture.
Bennett’s daughter, Antonia Bennett has been touring with her father and will open the performance with a collection of jazz/pop standards. Antonia Bennett is a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music.
