Two living music legends, America’s Tony Bennett and Mexico’s Vicente Fernández will meet on stage live to perform at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on Sunday, September 30. Tony will make a special appearance during Vicente’s scheduled concert that night to perform their duet of the song, “Return to Me (Regresa A Mí)” which the two recorded for the crooner’s forthcoming album, TONY BENNETT: VIVA DUETS – set for release on October 22nd. With millions of albums sold and decades of performing to live audiences between them, these two giants of the US and Latin musical world performing live together for the first time is a historic moment. Tony flew to Guadalajara, Mexico earlier this year to record their duet of “Return to Me (Regresa A Mí)”, a song made famous by Dean Martin, which will be included on VIVA DUETS set for worldwide release on Monday, October 22nd.

About Tony Bennett:
With millions of records sold world-wide and platinum and gold albums to his credit, Bennett has received seventeen Grammy Awards — including a 1995 Grammy for Record of the Year for his “MTV Unplugged” CD which introduced this American master to a whole new generation — and the Grammy Lifetime Award. His 2007 prime-time special, “Tony Bennett: An American Classic,” won seven Emmy Awards. His initial successes came via a string of Columbia singles in the early 1950’s, including such chart-toppers as “Because of You,” “Rags to Riches,” and a remake of Hank Williams “Cold, Cold Heart.” He had 24 songs in the Top 40, including “I Wanna Be Around,” “The Good Life,” “Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)” and his signature song,” I Left My Heart In San Francisco,” recorded 50 years ago this coming January 2012. This song garnered him two Grammy Awards. Tony Bennett is one of a handful of artists to have new albums charting in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and now in the first two decades of the 21st century. He has introduced a multitude of songs into the Great American Songbook that have since become standards for pop music. He has toured the world to sold out audiences with rave reviews whenever he performs. For more information visit http://www.tonybennett.net/, http://www.facebook.com/tonybennett and
