Saturday, September 1, 7:30 p.m. at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace
Nevada Public Radio has a very limited number of rear orchestra seats for a special performance with one of America's best singers, Tony Bennett, at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
Few pop singers can claim a popularity as enduring as Tony Bennett's. His warm tenor is famous for its simplicity and emotional directness, as evidenced in his renditions of such hits as "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," "Rags to Riches" and "What a Good Life." Bennett began his career performing in various New York clubs before being discovered in 1949 by Bob Hope. During the '50s, he recorded such songs as "Because of You,"
"Rags to Riches" and "Cold, Cold Heart." In 1962, Bennett recorded his best known song "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," and won the first of 17 Grammys.
