SLCene Suggests: Tony Bennett at Red Butte Garden

by on June 19, 2013

TONY BENNETT, RED BUTTE GARDEN, Thursday, June 20, 8 p.m., $72

I can’t lie–my primary interest in seeing Tony Bennett in concert is to fill in that box on my classic-crooner music-nerd Bingo card. Bennett’s blend of American standards and jazz isn’t in my regular rotation of recreational listening, but I know a living legend when I see one, and Bennett certainly is that. Still going strong into his 80s, Bennett has 17 Grammys to his credit, stretching back to 1963’s awards for his classic “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” to just last year when he won for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for his Duets II set. His style remains timeless, and you pair that remarkable voice of Bennett’s with a night at Red Butte Garden and you’re looking at what could be a magical evening.
