Legendary musicians Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga took to the Mophie Stage at The Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Tuesday night for their first ticketed performance together in the United States of their Cheek to Cheek tour.

The crystal-studded curtains were drawn and the duo delivered an extraordinary lineup of classic jazz standards from their No. 1 album Cheek to Cheek accompanied by a world-class orchestra. For nearly two hours, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga entertained the sold-out crowd with sultry, smooth and high-energy songs such as “Anything Goes,” “Cheek To Cheek,” “They All Laughed” and “Nature Boy.” Throughout the evening, the duo displayed their close dynamic, dancing and dazzling the crowd with hits including “I Won’t Dance” and “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love.” Additionally, the two artists took turns performing solo on the mophie stage, with Bennett performing classics such as “The Good Life,” “Sophisticated Lady” and “Sing You Sinners” and Gaga singing jazz standards including “Bang Bang,” “Lush Life” and “Firefly.” Lady Gaga wowed the crowd with her stunning array of costumes, hair and makeup looks. For the finale, the pair brought down the house with the classic jazz song “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing).”

Notable names in attendance included designer Alexander Wang as well as “Chicago Fire” actor Taylor Kinney.
