David Foster and Friends Perform at the St. Pete Times Forum on October 30Producer, songwriter and famed musical showman, David Foster, will be performing on the “David Foster and Friends” tour with some of his talented friends. The tour will stop at the St. Pete Times Forum on October 30, 2009 at 8:00 pm. He will perform with his friends some of the hits that have paved the way for the many artists that he has worked with over the years including Whitney Houston, Barbara Streisand, Josh Groban, Celine Dion, Michael Bublè, Andrea Bocelli, Chaka Khan, Madonna, Chicago and The Corrs. In addition to such artists as Philip Bailey from the chart-topping Earth, Wind and Fire, Oprah protégé’ Charice, Chicago’s Peter Cetera and American Idol’s Michael Johns, fans can expect surprise visits at every show.

Since, Foster had had an uparalleled four decade career in producting, writing, discovering and nuturing some of the greatest talents in music, he has added a special event to the “Foster and Friends Show” -  a HIT MAN Talent Search for emerging artists that will take place in each city.  Talent in each market will compete to be the next mega artist by submitting video performances to predetermined TV or radio stations in their markets.  Viewers/listeners will vote for the two finalists via station websites.  The two finalists get to perform with Foster in front of a live audience during the Foster and Friends Concert. The audience and Foster will choose the final winner.  The winner in each city will be flown to Vancouver on November 8th for a final showdown in Foster’s home town where one winner will be crowned.

Foster is a 15-time Grammy winner. His PBS Great Performances Special, “David Foster and Friends” was the highest pledged PBS show in history.  Foster recently produced Seal’s critically acclaimed, Soul CD, Michael Bublè’s upcoming Crazy Love CD and a cut on Whitney Houston’s new CD. He is also in the studio with Oprah discovery Charice who received five standing ovations during her recent performance in Las Vegas.
