On Saturday, September 24th, The Staples Center will find a sixteen-foot, interactive electronic birthday cake erected outside of its doors in honor of Tony Bennett’s 85th birthday. That evening, Bennett will be joined inside by musically gifted amigos like Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Diana Krall, and Carrie Underwood for a concert fundraiser that benefits AARP’s “Drive to End Hunger,” an effort to feed those in need within the U.S. senior population. Tickets for the one-night concert are available online, while interacting with the cake will be free.
