Whether you are or aren’t (me) in attendance to this years iTunes festival in London, you should be watching! iTunes is broadcasting every performance through iTunes, even if you miss is, you can go back and watch the videos at a later date. It’s a great lineup with multiple artists performing everyday. It’s been great getting to see artists in concert that I never thought I would be able to see. Check here for the full lineup.
Today I watched as jazz master, Tony Bennett took the stage. At the peak age of 88, you would never guess it. This man has been performing for over 60 years and still continues to dazzle crowds. His classic renditions of music by Charlie Chaplin and Dean Martin never seem to get old. His sense of humor is also still intact as he jokes to the crowd by saying “I think you should buy it because she really needs the money,” referring to the jazz album he just made with Lady Gaga that’s set to be released September 19 called “Cheek to Cheek.” Pre-order here.
Here are two of the tracks that have already been released.
Anything Goes- Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga
