Wasn't sure whether to put this here or down in Music, but tonight at 9 pm on NBC. 90!

Live from Radio City, wanted to let people know who appreciate Tony, the best of the genre still active, imo.

Tony Bennett, an American treasure. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/05/arts/music/tony-bennett-90th-birthday-rainbow-room-lady-gaga.html?_r=0

Don't know if I'm the only one who watched, but it was great. And, best for me, was Tony himself was in great voice. No, wait, he was in unbelievable voice for 90 years of age. Or, 80, or 70, or...

Oh Phooey, I missed it! :(

I did see the trailer, and thought he looked and sounded fantastic for his age - A real class act.

He's something else. You gotta check it out (hope it will be repeated). I mean, you see this guy, he does look great, you're right. But, you know, you're quite aware of his age, and when he goes for that big note, you're thinkin', 'make it Tony, make it...' but you're half afraid he won't. Well, he did. Just too much.

We saw him live, back in the 80s, in Reno. It was a trade-off. Hubby wanted to see Tony and Woody Herman's band in the show room. I agreed, as long as we could also see the lounge show, Paul Revere and the Raiders. Tony is better now than he was then.

:Thumbs: Lavern, you might want to skip through some of it.

Mary, pretty sure Tony had some issues around that time.

Good call, MaryMumsy. I've seen Paul Revere and the Raiders. They did not hold up.
