    Stevie Wonder, John Mayer will join Tony Bennett at Staples (Carrie, too!!)

    Carrie at the Staples Center September 24th! Hope this is true!


    Tony Bennett marked his 85th birthday earlier this month. Now he'll have some notable musicians to celebrate it with.


    On Sept. 24, the iconic crooner will be come to Staples Center, where he will
    be joined onstage by Stevie Wonder, Diana Krall, John Mayer and Carrie
    Underwood, according to a source close to the singer.


    For the so-called birthday concert, the source says, all four will perform
    duets with Bennett, reprising a role they played on his studio records. Krall
    and Wonder each recorded with Bennett on his 2006 "Duets" album, while Mayer and
    Underwood pair up with him on the upcoming "Duets 2," out Sept. 20. (Mayer sings
    "One for the Road (And One More for My Baby)" with Bennett; Underwood offers "It
    Had to Be You.”)


    "Duets 2" also includes new recordings of Bennett with Lady Gaga, Willie
    Nelson and, most poignantly, Amy Winehouse, among others.


    AARP is helping to sponsor the Staples event, which marks a larger media
    blitz for Bennett: The day before the show, he'll be seen performing with
    Underwood in a scene on the CBS drama "Blue Bloods."


    Other young singers hoping for a chance to sing with the legend, though, may
    be out of luck -- Bennett told Pop & Hiss this week that he's not expecting
    a follow-up. "I think that's about enough duets for now," he said.

    There is also a documentary coming out this fall of the making of the CD! I guess Carrie will be in it! YES!!

    Tony Bennett Staples Center Concert to Feature Carrie Underwood, John Mayer, Diana Krall, Stevie Wonder - The Hollywood Reporter

    Many of the recording sessions were filmed for a behind-the-scenes “making of” documentary, shot by Academy Award-winning cinematographer Dion Beebe (Memoirs of a Geisha, Green Lantern) and due out this fall, including footage of Bennett working with Winehouse. “You can’t believe how wonderful she was during the recording,” Bennett told the Chicago Sun Times. “I think it will surprise a lot of people. She started singing and I remember I said to her, ‘You must be influenced by Dinah Washington.’ And she said how do you know that? She’s my idol.’ It just changed everything between us when she knew that I knew where she was coming from musically.”

    Carrie is commercially more marketable for ticket sales, so they put her name first

    Wow, that is huge.
    Diana Krall Tony Bennett & Carrie Underwood?!!!!
    I tell you she is walking with the giants.
    That is a very impressive group to be a part of.
    Say what you will about J.Mayer, he is still considered (and probably always will be) one of the preeminant recording artists of the day.

    This is great for all you folks out west! Hope some CF'ers get to go. I'll be patiently waiting in KY for her tour for album four.
