The last man standing of the great interpreters of American song, Tony Bennett might just outlast us all. Now in his seventh decade of performing, the singer born Anthony Thomas Benedetto, 89, is hotter than ever. He has been a TV fixture this holiday season alongside Lady Gaga in those Barnes & Noble ads, which follow the intergenerational duo’s No. 1 album from last year, “Cheek to Cheek.” It made Bennett, at age 88, the oldest artist ever to top the charts; he broke his own record, set at age 85, for the star-studded “Duets II” (2011). His latest album is “The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern,” a collaboration with jazz pianist Bill Charlap that garnered a Grammy nod for Traditional Pop Vocal Album. Bennett performs at the Orpheum in a concert featuring an opening set by his daughter Antonia Bennett. It’s almost sold out. 8 p.m. Tickets: $70-$125. 203 S. Main. orpheummemphis.com
