Two of jazz music’s most famous faces are teaming up for a co-headlining tour this summer. Jazz saxophonist Kenny G and guitarist George Benson will embark on their co-headlining tour dubbed Breezin’ & Breathless.
The duo combined has sold over 125 million albums worldwide, won an incredible 11 Grammy Awards, and released 15 #1 albums. They will play their greatest hits and fan favorites, celebrating the 40th anniversary of Benson’s breakthrough Breezin‘ album and 25 years since the release of Kenny G’s Breathless.
“To say I’m honored to share the stage with one of the greatest musicians in the world would be a huge understatement,” Kenny G says via statement. “George Benson has always been a jazz hero to me with a virtuosity that is second to none. In the past I was very fortunate to have had the chance to perform with him, but doing an extended co-headline tour together is truly an honor and a privilege. I can’t wait to experience the magic that I know will be there each night.”
“Kenny, Kenny G that is, is a refined instrumentalist with a lot of wonderful ideas that have connected with millions around the world,” Benson adds. “He is a master of the soprano sax. I always enjoy when we get an opportunity to work together and I look forward to a very successful tour.”
Kenny G has partnered with CID Entertainment to offer VIP Experiences on tour, available now at www.kennygVIP.com. Packages include premium reserved seating in the first 5 rows, a meet & greet, and custom Forever in Love sheet music and folder signed by Kenny G, and more.
