Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga announced Monday that they’ll take the stage for two collaborative shows at New York’s Radio City Music Hall on August 3 and August 5.

Billed as “One Last Time: An Evening With Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga,” the gigs will be the final New York City shows of Bennett’s career.

“We couldn’t be prouder to host such a special engagement with two of the most iconic entertainers of our time,” said Darren Pfeffer, Madison Square Garden Entertainment executive vice president, in a statement. “Both Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga are synonymous with New York City, making the Great Stage at Radio City Music Hall the perfect place to honor their decade long friendship and celebrate Mr. Bennett’s 95th birthday.”

No phones, cameras or recording devices will be permitted at the Radio City shows, where fans will be required to secure devices in Yondr pouches. Tickets for the gigs go on sale on July 22 at 10 a.m. ET.

The shows, the first of which fall’s on Bennett’s 95th birthday, will be the only shared concert appearances between Gaga and Bennett this summer and arrive almost a decade after the two released their first collaboration, a cover of the 1937 show tune “The Lady Is A Tramp” for Bennett’s Duets II, in October 2011.

The duo released their sole collaborative album, Cheek to Cheek, in 2014, and it won Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album at the Grammy Awards the following year.

In 2015, Bennett and Gaga played more than 30 shows together in North America and Europe, including four nights at Radio City Music Hall and two nights at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl.

The upcoming Radio City gigs follow a news-filled report in AARP the Magazine earlier this year where Bennett revealed a years-long battle with Alzheimer’s disease – and that sessions for the sequel to Cheek to Cheek have been completed.

Reports submitted to Pollstar’s Boxoffice include the “Tony Bennett Turns 90” concert at Radio City Music Hall on Sept. 15, 2016, that sold 1,901 tickets and grossed $546,609. The event featured performances from Bennett, Lady Gaga, Andrea Bocelli, Diana Krall, Elton John, k.d. lang, Michael Bublé and Steve Wonder.
