Tony Bennett 

June 2, Outlaw Field

At 89 years old, no one would fault Tony Bennett for spending his days napping and waiting for Jeopardy to air. Instead, the 18-time Grammy Award winner is not only still singing, he remains relevant—even to younger audiences—thanks, in part, to a handful releases. On Duets: An American Classic (Sony, 2006), Bennett was joined by singers like Bono, Celine Dion and Tim McGraw. On Duets II (Columbia, 2011), his singing partners included Mariah Carey, Queen Latifah, John Mayer, Carrie Underwood, Amy Winehouse and Lady Gaga. Working with Mother Monster must have been magical because in 2014, Bennett and Gaga released Cheek to Cheek (Columbia), a collection of classics from songwriters such as Irving Berlin and Cole Porter. It confirmed Gaga was no mere novelty in a meat dress and brought a gaggle of new fans to the Bennett camp.

The veteran crooner heads to Boise Thursday, June 2, and though that's a long way out, be like Bennett: Don't wait until it's too late.
