Few artists have earned their “living legend” status like singer Tony Bennett, who turned 87 last summer. (How many other musicians can you name who’ve sold more than more than 10 million records, after turning 75?)

Bennett heads to Hartford’s Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts for a show on Friday, May 30 at 8 p.m. Tickets ($59-$129) go on sale this Friday, Feb. 14 at 10 a.m. through bushnell.org or by calling 860-987-6000.

Not convinced of the whole “legend” thing? Here’s a clip of Bennett performing a medley on “The Judy Garland Show” in 1963 (and a nice duet with Garland at the end on “I Left My Heart In San Francisco).
