Iconic crooner Tony Bennett will perform at Tacoma’s Pantages Theater on June 15 in a benefit concert.

The 85-year-old multiple Grammy Award winner will be supporting arts education.

Tickets go on sale for Broadway Center members on Thursday and for the general public on Feb. 19. Tickets run $89-249 and can be purchased at the Broadway Center box office, at 253-591-5894 or at www.BroadwayCenter.org. The $249 ticket includes a post-show reception with hosted bar and dessert buffet.

Bennett’s long career has earned him 17 Grammy Awards including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

The man who made “I Left My Heart In San Francisco” a musical landmark has not dimmed in popularity. Each new generation discovers the singer, helping to make his 2012 CD Duets II #1 on the Billboard album charts. Featured on the CD are Lady Gaga, Michael Buble, Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey and the late Amy Winehouse, in her last recording session.

With his wife, Susan, Bennett established Exploring the Arts (ETA) to support arts education in public high schools.
