Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga Set to Make Final Concessions at Broadway’s Broom Stoop



Tony Bennett will end his Broadway run with a grand finale, signing off with an orchestral rendition of “The Lady Is a Tramp” with Lady Gaga.

Bennett, who celebrated his 95th birthday in April, will end “Tony Bennett Celebrates 90 Years of Singing” in four more shows Sunday, after a final-performance show Thursday.

The singer, who has a hit album every year for the past 50 years, will also share a pre-show performance and reminisce with fans.

Bennett launched the “Tony Bennett Celebrates 90 Years of Singing” tour on May 4.

“I’m glad to be here again this year doing more hits, and I’m really enjoying it,” he said in a press release. “My fans are still very supportive, and it is really gratifying.”

The venue’s official website said the show will be livestreamed on the internet.

“The duo is coming from Barbados for a little vacation before they head back to Hollywood, where they’ll film a third season of ‘Tony Bennett: Duets II,’” the release said.

Bennett has enjoyed a lengthy and celebrated career, calling himself “truly an old-school guy.”

The result is a legacy that spans everything from swing classics to Bach to tangos, gems such as “Rags to Riches” to show tunes like “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.”
