Has Tony Bennett ever played a bad show? It would be hard to find anyone who attended such a mediocre performance in the 50-plus years the man has been recording, let alone have it documented in print. Truthfully, it doesn't seem possible.
The 88-year-old legend came out dressed to the nines in a cream-colored jacket and a smile that never left his face. The joy and optimism he exuded was immediately contagious to the sold-out crowd inside Ikeda Theatre
at Mesa Arts Center
and was introduced by none other than his friend from across the Hudson River, Frank Sinatra.
