LOS ANGELES - The Tony Bennett 80th-birthday celebration rolls west. Bennett was honored with an all-star bash in New York on Aug. 3, his birthday. Next up: a glittering celebration in Los Angeles.
George Clooney, Paul Newman, Billy Crystal, Jack Nicholson and Bruce Willis will gather Nov. 9 at Hollywood's Kodak Theatre for the charity fundraiser, "Singers and Songs Celebrate Tony Bennett's 80th," music producer Lou Adler announced Monday.
A variety of artists will perform at the gala, including Bennett, a 13-time Grammy winner. Ticket prices for the event, at the Kodak Theatre, range from $50 to $5,000.
Besides honoring the entertainment legend, the night will raise awareness and funds for Newman's Hole in the Wall Camps, a nonprofit organization with nine camps worldwide for children with serious illnesses and life threatening conditions.
