Aside from his 1962 hit, Bennett performs ‘Fly Me to the Moon’, ‘Steppin’ Out With My Baby’ and ‘Watch What Happens’ at “One Last Time: An Evening With Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’.
AceShowbiz –Tony Bennett has brought a moving final live performance before retiring from touring. When closing out “One Last Time: An Evening With Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga”, the 95-year-old belted out “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” before leaving the stage with Lady GaGa.
Bennett and GaGa’s two-night concert series, which took place at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, was recorded in early August as a part of his birthday celebration. Fans had a chance to watch the show on Sunday, November 28 after CBS aired the special performance.
GaGa began the show with a four-song set, including “Luck Be a Lady”, “Orange Colored Sky”, “Let’s Do It” and “New York, New York.” Bennett then performed “Watch What Happens”, “Steppin’ Out With My Baby” as well as “Fly Me to the Moon”. The duo continued to entertain fans with a duet of “Lady Is a Tramp”, “Love for Sale” and “Anything Goes”.
The 19-time Grammy winner later finished his gig by singing the 1962 hit, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco”. Following his performance, the “House of Gucci” actress took to the stage to escort him out. “Tony, we’re all so grateful to have witnessed your talent, your generosity, your creativity, your kindness, and your service through all the years,” she told the music legend.
After Bennett thanked GaGa, she said, “Mr. Bennett, it would be my honor to escort you off the stage.” The “Born This Way” hitmaker then took his arm as they walked out of the stage.
Bennett was initially set to perform at several shows after “One Last Time”. However, his son Danny announced that he’s forced to cancel all of them because doctors told Bennett to do so amid his battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
“There won’t be any additional concerts,” Danny told Variety in mid-August. “This was a hard decision for us to make, as he is a capable performer. This is, however, doctors’ orders. His continued health is the most important part of this, and when we heard the doctors – when Tony’s wife, Susan heard them – she said, ‘Absolutely not.’ “
“He’ll be doing other things, but not those upcoming shows. It’s not the singing aspect but, rather, the traveling,” he added. “Look, he gets tired. The decision is being made that doing concerts now is just too much for him. We don’t want him to fall on stage, for instance – something as simple as that. We’re not worried about him being able to sing. We are worried, from a physical stand point… about human nature. Tony’s 95.”
