Why did Tony cancel his show?

The fact that Bennett is still touring despite his age is really amazing. In the interview with the Star Tribune, Bennett explained that he uses a special technique in order to maintain his ageless singing voice.

“I still remember,”

he said,

“this cautionary tale that I was told back then about doing your vocal exercises: ‘If you skip them one day, you know it; if you skip them two days, the band knows it; if you skip them three days, the audience knows it.’ ”
