Legendary singer Tony Bennett is 87, and he’s coming to perform in Israel this September.

Tickets went on sale Tuesday morning for the September 14 concert at Tel Aviv’s Heichal Hatarbut, starting at NIS 209 ($61).

Bennett is known for hundreds of songs, such as “Rags to Riches” from the early 1950s and 1962’s “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.”

He had a tougher time finding an audience in the 1960s and 1970s, but staged a comeback in the 1980s and 1990s, and has sold more than 50 million records worldwide.

During his six-decade career, Bennett has won 17 Grammy awards, including recent ones with Stevie Wonder and Amy Winehouse.

His latest album, “Duets II,” came out in 2012 and won a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.

Tickets are on sale through the Zappa Club website.
