Tony Bennett is one of the last singers of a bygone generation. His peers included Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Perry Como, and other great crooners. Bennett, reaching 90, has maintained a pretty busy schedule. However, in the last few months his health has come into question. Tony was set to perform in my hometown of Pittsburgh on July 9.

Officials announced Thursday evening that singer Tony Bennett’s performance scheduled for this Saturday at Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh has been canceled. According to a press release, Bennett, 89, has the flu, which has temporarily prevent him from touring for the next few days. However, sources say that age is finally catching up to the crooner. Many people say his health just is not what it used to be, and he should slow down his hectic pace.

The release said refunds are available at point of purchase, and that the performance would not be rescheduled, which is also a ref flag to more serious health issues...


  1. Hate to think we might lose another one....not too many left that connect us to that generation.

  2. We're fortunate that Tony has maintained his career for such a long time.
