Tony Bennett is coming to Sarasota.

The singer with the silken voice, impeccable phrasing and charming stage presence will be at Van Wezel Performing Arts Center on Sept. 8. He’ll turn 91 in August, but he demonstrated in his concert last year in St. Petersburg that he’s still in excellent form.

Bennett has won 19 Grammy Awards and a Citizen of the World Awards from the United Nations.

Tickets for his Van Wezel show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. Prices range from $57-$147. Go to vanwezel.org or call 941-953-3368.
