To celebrate their longtime friendship, Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett will perform two final shows together at New York's Radio City Music Hall. One Last Time: An Evening With Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga opens August 3 (Bennett’s 95th birthday), and concludes with a second show on August 5.
It is likely that these are the last performances Bennett will give in NYC, considering recent news of his Alzheimer's diagnosis. In the years between his 2016 diagnosis and present day, Bennett's disease progressed slowly enough that he was still able to tour and record music.
Gaga and Bennett first teamed up together in 2014, when they released their collaborative Grammy-winning album Cheek to Cheek. The duo previously performed at Radio City Music Hall together in 2015, and in 2019, Bennett was a surprise guest at the opening night of Gaga’s Jazz & Piano residency in Las Vegas. Gaga and Bennett recently created a second album together that will be released later this year.
A special Citi card member pre-sale for One Last Time will begin Wednesday (July 21) at 10am ET. General ticket sales then start Thursday, also at the same time. More information about tickets can be found here.
All ticketholders will be required to show proof of vaccination, and per the artists' request, no phones, cameras, or recording devices will be allowed inside the venue. Staff will collect attendees’ devices and put them in Yondr pouches that can only be opened in lobby unlocking stations.
“We couldn’t be prouder to host such a special engagement with two of the most iconic entertainers of our time,” said Darren Pfeffer, executive VP of live at Madison Square Garden Entertainment. “Both Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga are synonymous with New York City, making the great stage at Radio City Music Hall the perfect place to honor their decade long friendship and celebrate Mr. Bennett’s 95th birthday.”
