It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Judy Garland here at The Year of Tony Bennett.
Opening in September is Judy, a biopic starring Renée Zellweger as Judy Garland. We’ve got a couple of previews to share:

And while I’m on YouTube, here’s Tony and Judy on the Judy Garland Show on July 30, 1963:
July 30, 1963: Videotaping of “Episode Five” of “The Judy Garland Show” at CBS Television City, Stage 43, Hollywood. Judy’s guests for this episode were Tony Bennett and Dick Shawn.
As always, Tony Bennett will be appearing at Ravinia in Highland Park, Illinois, on August 4, 2017, just one day after his 91st birthday.
The Ravinia Associates Board is auctioning a wonderful package for this concert:
- Four Pavilion Tickets
- Free Parking
- A Meet and Greet with Mr. Bennett after the show
This auction will help raise money for the Ravinia Festival’s programs. You can bid on this fabulous package here.
If there is any kind of post that I love to write, it’s when I get to announce a pre-order for something from Tony Bennett.
Working with Tony on this book is NPR’s Scott Simon, who hosts Weekend Edition Saturday. It’s obvious to this listener that he loves Tony Bennett as much as we do and I think he’s an excellent choice of a collaborator. He did a lovely interview with Tony and Bill Charlap last October for the release of The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern. You can listen to that interview here. It’s also being released as an audiobook–I’ll provide more information on that as soon as I learn more.
For those of you who live in the New York area, Mr. Bennett will be signing copies of his book at The Bookmark Shoppe in Brooklyn. Click here for more information.
As Tony Bennett nears his 90th birthday this August, the celebrations have already begun. In Las Vegas tonight is the Power Of Love Gala!

Oh, and bit of a change to a street name:
For the first time ever, Las Vegas Boulevard is temporarily renamed Tony Bennett Boulevard today. I’m so honored!pic.twitter.com/5m19tkhT26
And finally, our favorite dog, Happy!
