“He’s San Francisco,” said Marty Jewett who is a hardcore Bennett fan. further added “I think he keeps all the generations within his repertoire. I love his voice and his longevity.” Also Margaret Baker was seen sharing besides Jewett and said “I think Tony Bennett represents the best in Italian-American entertainment going back for generations,” Baker said.
Tony has been serving San Francisco since ages and now it was time for the city to return back all the favours and what could be more beautiful than this, a fantastic birthday celebration and a bright shining Tony Bennett statue.
