David Foster: The Hitman Tour
Sunday April 15, 2018. One of the most successful record producers and songwriters in history will be gracing The Colosseum stage in An Intimate Evening with David Foster on The Hitman Tour. Foster’s personal mottos and philosophy, ‘compromise breeds mediocrity’, has shaped the way he has approached everything in his more than four decades as a musician, songwriter, composer, arranger, producer, and recording artist. It is the reason why superstars like Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Rod Stewart and Stevie Wonder have trusted him with their voices and to help them realize their musical dreams. Indeed, few other songwriters and producers have had their fingerprints on more major moments in all of popular music. Foster has created hit songs and award-winning gold and platinum albums for a diverse array of artists including Earth, Wind& Fire, Natalie Cole, Michael Bolton, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Chicago, Hall & Oates, ‘N Sync, Boz Scaggs and Gloria Estefan; propelled singers who have straddled both pop and classical styles like Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban, into the mainstream; created culture-defining soundtracks for blockbuster films like The Bodyguard, Urban Cowboy, and St. Elmo’s Fire; and crafted timeless holiday classics, including perennial best sellers like Groban’s Noel, Michael Buble’s Christmas, Celine Dion’s These Are Special Times, Rod Stewart’s Merry Christmas Baby, and Andrea Bocelli’s My Christmas. For his illustrious work, Foster has won 16 Grammy Awards, including three for Producer of the Year, an Emmy Award, A Golden Globe, and racked up three Oscar nominations for “Best Original Song’. In June 2010, he was inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. In 2008 and 2011, Foster stepped out as performer in his own right as the host of “Foster & Friends” – two star-studded concert events in Las Vegas that celebrate the music from Foster’s unparalleled catalog. Special musical guest will be joining Foster throughout the tour.
