How's this for some good tour timing: Tony Bennett's long, meandering tour which spreads 33 shows over 8 months, will be conveniently making a slew of stops in Florida throughout January 2010. On January 8, Mr. Bennett will bring his golden voice to the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami, and a few days later (January 12 to be exact) to Kravis Center for the Arts in West Palm Beach. This is genius level tour planing: get the hell down to Florida in January and spend a month playing a handful of shows. Tickets aren't yet on sale, but Crossfade will let you know when they are. Or you can feverishly check Ticketmaster.
