TONY BENNETT AT WOLF TRAP
My husband and I saw Tony Bennett last night at Wolf Trap Aug. 18, 2019, What a shame it was and so disappointing: His daughter Antonia was better than she's ever been but that's not saying much as she doesn't have a great or strong voice and one knows she has gotten the gig only because it was with her father. Her range is narrow, sound rigid and banter predictable. She said and sang pretty much the same things when we saw her and Tony a year ago. Tony seemed lacked energy, forgot some lyrics, compressed too many mini versions of his classics and called attention to his quartet too much. Over the last ten years we have seen and enjoyed him when he was still able to deliver on his legendary style; last night he wasn't all there. Too much shouting, not enough intimate interpretations, not enough of the man lingering with his music.

SHOULD NOT STILL BE PERFORMING
Saw Tony Bennett last night at Artis in Naples, Florida. My wife didn’t want to go as she was concerned about paying top dollar for “over the hill” legends (we saw Art Garfunkel last year, who had totally lost his voice). I read some recent reviews that said he was fantastic, so I dragged her with me. I should have listened. The show opened with the Tony Bennett quarter, who were very credible musicians. Then his daughter came out and sang for about 15 minutes. Nice voice, but not any better than a good lounge singer. Tony Bennett was a disappointment. He sang for about an hour. From time to time you could hear the recognizable Tony Bennett voice, but most of it was shouting, talking to the music, or I ntroducing the musicians, who did a lot of solos to take up time. I made my wife stay to the end to hear, “I left my heart in San Francisco”. He couldn’t screw that up! It was ok. Some of it recognizable, some off key, and some shouting. Not sure why he is still performing at 92. He couldn’t need the money.. Maybe it’s just a showcase for his daughter, who probably couldn’t get a gig on her own. He should give it up and enjoy retirement.

NOT A GREAT NIGHT IN GR
Attended the concert tonight and it is sad to see him tonight. He bellowed and shouted out his half songs instead of just singing. Most of his songs were centered around the piano or guitar players with Tony singing a few bars. He seemed lost at times but remember the words It was painful to hear him sing. I know he is 90 but he needs to stop touring . His ticket prices are very high and his audience deserves a better show. His daughter sang for 20 minutes in the beginning so he would not have to sing the entire 90 minute show
