Tony Bennett Backs Out


The great jazz and pop crooner Tony Bennett was scheduled to help kick-off Cleveland's 2007 Tri-C JazzFest. Scene writer Mark Wedel even wrote a feature previewing Bennett's Friday, April 20 gig at the Allen Theatre downtown. But alas, Bennett has been forced -- at the very last minute -- to postpone his appearance due to lingering flu symptoms. The show has been rescheduled for October 19 -- which obviously does festival organizers and fans no good. If pop/jazz vocals are your thing, the Fest still has the Dianne Reeves and George Duke concert on Saturday, April 28, also at the Allen Theatre. Check out Scene writer Mark Keresman's preview for further details. -- Justin F. Farrar
