Arts Fridays: Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga, the Queen, Buble…

Posted on 27 Jan 2012

Tony Bennett fan?  Love those fab big band sounds?  Maybe a little Gaga or the Queen or Luckenbach guitar from our favorite braided Texan floats your boat?  How PBS got them all wrapped into an hour and a half of lusciousness is beyond me.  But they did and what a treat….I am developing a blister on my mouse finger for the constant hit of REPLAY on the preview.  It’s that cool.  I even dig the neon turquoise hair that Gaga sports and seeing Amy Winehouse one more time.  Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban and Michael Buble aren’t hard to look at or hear either.  There’s something for everyone this Friday night on AETN Arts Fridays at 9 p.m. 

Don’t miss it!  GREAT PERFORMANCES: Tony Bennett: Duets II with Lady Gaga, Queen Latifah, Andrea Bocelli, Amy Winehouse, Willie Nelson, Josh Groban, and Michael Buble. 

TUNE IN to AETN Arts Fridays January 27 at 9 p.m. on AETN. 

WATCH a preview and check out the blue hair, the braids and guitar and the joy of song.

Check out what Tony Bennett has to say about the collaborations with a stellar, eclectic group of songsters.


Arkansas and the American Dream
We’re all familiar with the American Dream — the idea that anyone in the United States can climb the economic ladder of opportunity — but is it still achievable? AETN continues to address poverty in the state with “A Deeper Look: The American Dream in Arkansas” and to survey the national landscape with “Dream On.” Learn more about these projects and a special night of programming after the jump.
