Living in Chicago’s northern suburbs, Ravinia is a favorite concert venue for our family – a short drive from Rock Father HQ. Next summer, there’s a special event taking place as TONY BENNETT returns to Ravinia for his 28th season, while LADY GAGA makes her Ravinia debut as the duo perform songs from their recently-released album, CHEEK TO CHEEK on June 26 & 27, 2015. Early details just hit my inbox a few moments ago, revealing that the pair will be accompanied by a full orchestra, along with each artist’s jazz ensembles.

“For so many audiences the name Tony Bennett is almost synonymous with Ravinia, so it’s great to see this living legend build this bridge that will introduce new audiences to his favorite summer venue at the same time that Lady Gaga is introducing the Great American Songbook to a new generation of fans. We expect these events, in Gaga’s vernacular, to be monsters.” Welz Kauffman, President & CEO, Ravinia Festival
