LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Tony Bennett has a new sponsor for his “The Best is Yet to Come” tour — The AARP.
The tour, slated to kick off in early 2007 is expected to stop at 20 different cities along the way and is in support of Tony's new CD "Duets – An American Classic."
Because of the exclusive sponsorship, AARP members will have discounts and may receive special opportunities to see Bennett perform. A deal is currently under negotiation to give one lucky AARP member a chance to win a Tony Bennett concert at their home, but this has not yet been finalized.
“AARP is thrilled to be Tony Bennett's newest duet partner,” said Shereen Remez, the executive in charge of Member Value at the AARP “In fact, Tony is the perfect musical ambassador for AARP. He proves that age is just a number and life is what you make it.”
The sponsorship marks the first such enterprise by the 37 million-member AARP. As baby boomers get older however, it is likely not to be the last.
The tour will make stops at the following cities:Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Denver, Detroit, Hartford-New Haven, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Seattle, San Francisco, St. Louis, Tampa-St. Pete, & Washington DC – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
