Tony Bennett kicks off a new season of music and entertainment at St David's Hall, Cardiff tonight. The tour coincides with the release of Bennett's newest album, Tony Bennett on Holiday. The latest offering is devoted to Billie Holiday songs, who Bennett became immediately enchanted with when he heard her performing in a nightclub almost 40 years ago.

The concert at St David's Hall will feature a mix of traditional Bennett classics such as "Fly Me to the Moon" and "I Left My Heart in San Francisco", his more recent releases, and a selection of Billie Holiday songs. Tonight's concert is one of six performances by Bennett in the United Kingdom.

Other upcoming concerts at St David's Hall include Mark Wrigglesworth conducting Janacek and Brahms followed by an audience Q and A session on Friday, and on Sunday the Treorchy Male Voice Choir, with Dennis O'Neill, celebrate 50 years of singing.
