“Cheek To Cheek,” the collaborative jazz album from Tony Bennett and Lady GaGa is out now. The debut song from the album, Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes” was recently released on iTunes and hit #1 on Billboard’s Digital Jazz Charts. They first met backstage in 2011 after the two performed at the Robin Hood Foundation gala in New York City and Bennett asked Lady Gaga to sing a duet with him on his ‘Duets II album’ that he was beginning to record. “The Lady is A Tramp.” This led to a collaboration of their jazz album ‘Cheek To Cheek’, that hit #1 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart, which they are supporting with live shows. You can experience a night of unusual yet, cheeky, brilliant talents that mesh together effortlessly even with 60 years in age that separates them. It will be a night remembered in ATX!
