Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, following the success of their number-one, critically acclaimed album Cheek To Cheek, will perform two concerts together at Ravinia on June 26 and June 27. This will be Lady Gaga’s Ravinia debut and the 28th season Tony Bennett has appeared at the festival, where he first performed in 1984. Both artists will be accompanied by a full orchestra, along with each artist’s jazz ensembles, which will also serve as special guests for the evening.
