Age hardly matters when it comes to the fall lineup of Las Vegas concerts. Tickets go on sale Friday for Tony Bennett’s next series of Sin City shows.
Bennett, who turned 91 in early August, will perform six shows during November. The title of his newest production: “Tony: The Best is Yet to Come.”
He’ll be followed by a slew of performers in their 70s, including Diana Ross, Bob Dylan and Ringo Starr.
Writing about Bennett teaming up with Lady Gaga, Gina Pell wrote on the Fast Company blog that labels such as “millennials” are becoming passé.
She suggested “perennials” as a more inclusive phrase. “We are ever-blooming, relevant people of all ages who live in the present time, know what’s happening in the world, stay current with technology, and have friends of all ages,” Pell wrote.
It’s time to shake off the demographics and the stereotypes as you consider this partial lineup of fall shows in Vegas.
— The Beach Boys will perform Sept. 15 at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts. (Original member Mike Love leads the band with Grammy-winning songwriter Bruce Johnston and others. This tour doesn’t feature Beach Boys Brian Wilson or Al Jardine.) Tickets start at $29.
Now, go dust off your old 45s — if you know what those are —-- and crank up the music.
