“One Last Time: An Evening With Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga” will open on August 3rd, Bennett’s 95th (!) birthday, with a second performance scheduled for August 5th. The shows are meant to be Bennett’s final concerts in the Big Apple, according to a press release.
To attend, fans must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and provide proof upon entry of having received their final dose no later than 14 days before their event date. The only exception is for children under the age of 16, who can provide proof of a negative antigen or PCR COVID-19 test if they are accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult.

Back in February, Bennett’s family revealed he has been battling Alzheimer’s since 2016. Despite the diagnosis, the legendary singer has retained his ability to perform and had continued to tour up until the COVID-19 pandemic.
Gaga and Bennett first met at a fundraising event in May 2011, after which they linked up in the studio to record “The Lady Is a Tramp” for Bennett’s Duets II album. Three years later, the duo released their collaborative album, Cheek to Cheek, netting a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal. The concerts will serve as a teaser of sorts for their upcoming follow-up, planned for release later this year.
