Tony Bennett delivers sublime performance at Boston Opera House

No one stands on a stage the way Tony Bennett does. In a crisp suit with arms outstretched and a smile just as wide, Bennett wears his age and stature in popular music as badges of honor.

He is 86 years old, a fact that has been increasingly hard to believe as Bennett continues to tour and record albums that put him at the top of the charts alongside artists who could be his great-grandchildren. His heroes — Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee — did not make it to his age.
