iTunes Festival Day 6 Preview: GRAMMY Award winning performer Tony Bennett lined up

by Martin


It’s the first weekend of the 2014 iTunes Festival and before we get to Scotland’s Calvin Harris on Sunday night it’s the turn of GRAMMY Award winning entertainer Tony Bennett to take to the stage.

We’re only in our first week of the month long festival and so far we’ve had incredible performances from acts such as David Guetta, 5 Seconds Of Summer and Kasabian. We’re really being spoiled.

Each day we’re bringing you an artist preview and a look at the concert ahead and tonight, it’s GRAMMY and EMMY award winning singer-songwriter Tony Bennett who is set to perform at the iconic Roundhouse in London.

It’s safe to say that Bennett is a legend in the music business and has a career spanning several decades and plenty of awards under his belt.

Most recently global superstar Lady Gaga recorded an album called ‘Cheek to Cheek’ filled with duets with Mr Bennett which is due to be released across the world on the 22nd of September.

At the age of 88 Tony will grace the stage to perform a variety of songs from the (wait for it) 70 albums he has released throughout his career.

It’s likely though that we’ll hear tracks from his biggest selling albums ‘I Left My Heart in San Francisco’, ‘MTV Unplugged: Tony Bennett’ and ‘Duets: An American Classic’.

If you can’t be in London, as we’ve said already then all performances from throughout the month will be available to view for free on iTunes.

Your iOS device will also allow you to view performances as will your Apple TV device so make sure you don’t miss out on some memorable moments in music.

Other artists still set to perform at the 2014 iTunes Festival include Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Pharrell Williams and many more! Visit their official website for more information.
