CANADIAN MUSIC ICON DAVID FOSTER ANNOUNCES HIS FIRST CANADIAN TOUR

An Intimate Evening with David Foster – Hitman Tour
Coming To Casino Rama Resort June 7, 2019

RAMA, ON (Wednesday, January 6, 2019) – Grammy award winning producer David Foster, who launched his first US tour in over eight years in 2018, is set to launch his first tour in his beloved homeland of Canada beginning June 3 in Montreal. The musical icon will bring his popular An Intimate Evening with David Foster – The Hitman Tour, to audiences in Canada with a stop at Casino Rama Resort on Friday, June 7, 2019 (9 PM).

An Intimate Evening with David Foster is just that: an intimate evening with one of the biggest musical forces of our time. The 16 time Grammy award winner performs the songs he wrote or produced from his four decades of hits, while telling fascinating stories about the songs, artists & moments of his life. Some of the music man’s hits include Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me,” Whitney Houston’s “The Bodyguard”, Earth Wind and Fire’s “After The Love Is Gone,” Chicago’s ”You’re The Inspiration”, Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up,” Michael Buble’s “Home,” Natalie Cole’s “Unforgettable”  and many, many more.

In the four decades of his impressive career, Foster has established himself as one of the most successful songwriters, composers, and record producers in history. For his groundbreaking work in music and composing, Foster has won 6 JUNO awards, 16 Grammy awards, an Emmy, a Golden Globe and has received three Oscar nominations for best Original song. In 1998, Foster was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame; in 2002, the Canadian Walk of Fame; and in 2010, he was honored by both the Canadian and the American Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2013, Foster received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, located notably next to his icons – John, Paul, George and Ringo – of the Beatles.

In March, The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) will honor David with the 2019 Humanitarian Award at the JUNO Awards.

Apart from returning as a Celebrity Judge on Asia’s biggest talent competition show, Asia’s Got Talent, Foster is gearing up to take on Broadway with several projects including writing the music for a new musical about the iconic animated character Betty Boop. He is also writing the music for a musical based on the Amy Bloom novel and New York Times bestseller, Lucky Us.  His studio album “Love” that he produced with fellow Canadian Michael Bublé was released November 2018 to rave reviews and entered The Billboard Top 200 Chart at No. 3.
