ViacomCBS has announced that it has teamed up with Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga for three exclusive specials to be shared via CBS, MTV Entertainment Group, and Paramount Plus over the coming months.
“We are honored to partner with the legendary Tony Bennett and the iconic Lady Gaga for ViacomCBS’ biggest cross-platform music talent collaboration to date,” said Bruce Gillmer, chief content officer of music for Paramount Plus and president of music, music talent, programming, and events for ViacomCBS.
He added, “With the sweeping range of our unique brands and platforms, ViacomCBS offers an unparalleled one-stop-shop for artists to showcase their global music releases and creative content of all varieties.”
An hour long special, “One Last Time: An Evening With Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga,” featuring footage captured at the two concerts performed the acts in August at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, will air on CBS on November 28, coinciding with Thanksgiving weekend. The special will then be available for streaming on Paramount Plus.
The second special will be the duo’s unplugged session recorded in August, and the third event, a documentary in support of Love For Sale, will be available exclusively on Paramount Plus. The special, described as “an intimate look into a beautiful friendship and musical partnership that transcends generations,” will include footage dating back to the duo’s first collaborative project Cheek To Cheek (2014).
“MTV has been part of Tony Bennett’s story since the 90s and has been the home to some of the most iconic Lady Gaga moments consistently over her career,” shared Gaga’s manager Bobby Campbell. “We are proud to partner with ViacomCBS to bring the experience of ‘Love For Sale’ to the world across platforms and generations.”
