This may have Lady Gaga fans smiling from cheek to cheek.

Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga are bringing their buzz-worthy duets to the stage at Ravinia Festival in Highland Park this summer.

The pair, whose duet album “Cheek to Cheek” became an international hit, will perform the festival on June 26 and 27.

The performance will mark Lady Gaga’s Ravinia debut, but it will be Bennett’s 28th season at the festival, where he first performed in 1984. Both artists will be accompanied by a full orchestra, along with each artist’s jazz ensembles.

The duo's "Cheek to Cheek" album made Bennett the oldest performer with a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200. "Cheek to Cheek" sold more than 131,000 copies since its release last week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, edging ahead of new albums by Kenny Chesney and Barbra Streisand.

The album also landed at No. 1 on the jazz albums and traditional jazz album charts.

Bennett, 88 and Lady Gaga, 28, will also be touring nationally in the coming months with scheduled performances at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas on Dec. 30 and 31 and next year at the Hollywood Bowl, Radio City Music Hall and other prominent venues.

Tickets go on sale first to Ravinia Festival donors on March 10, and the remaining tickets go on sale to the public on April 28.

The complete lineup for the festival is set to be announced on March 5.
