David Foster‘s arrival and concert in Indonesia along with the world-class artists brought such an indescribable hype last October 2010. Eventhough the concert was brought exclusive and quite expensive for most of us, many of his fans were still desperately trying to find the tickets even when the concert was already started. Looking at such a hype, it’s very reasonable that we would love to repeat it all over again, especially since the album “The Hitman Returns: David Foster & Friends” was released not too long ago (March, 2011) in the shape of CD and DVD as the new chapter of “Hitman: David Foster and Friends” which achieved a huge success throughout the world including Indonesia.
So guys, get ready for this. It’s not just a thought anymore, but Blackrock Entertainment has declared that the Hitman Mr David Foster himself will return for one special show for good! Calling the concert as “David Foster & Friends: Hitman Returns”, this time David Foster will bring some of the yesterday and today’s artists who were involved in this most recent release. These names that he’s going to come with will surely give you goosebumps, including Michael Bolton, Charice Pempengco, Philip Bailey, Ashanti and Russel Watson. It’s certainly not easy to bring David Foster and his Friends to Indonesia, it’s like a mission impossible to do that again in a quite a short time. But yes, it happens for real!
Hitman is perfect to describe the one and only David Foster. Flying far above the genres he has produced hundreds of hits and most definitely will add more since he’s still active in the music industry. His strong smell of potential in so many artists and turned them to be stars, for example Michael Buble, Ruben Studdard, Charice Pempengco and many more. Currently he’s producing the album of the 10 year old Jackie Evancho, the runner up of “America’s Got Talent”. He has given his touch to bring some well established groups/artists into the legendary status like the way he did with Chicago, Peter Cetera and Earth Wind and Fire. They way he did it? Well, by giving them the perfect hits that mostly become an instant classics. He has worked with many legends and brought them bigger than the legendary status like Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, Natalie Cole, Kenny Loggins, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Diana Ross, Rod Stewart just to mention a few. His ‘midas touch’ proved to be lethal. With all these hits and movements, there’s no better word to describe this immortal composer, pianist, singer and producer in one simple word, “Hitman”. “We are really proud to be able to bring David Foster to face thousands of his fans in Indonesia, said Khrisna Radhitya of Blackrock Entertainment at the press conference at Plaza Arcadia Senayan, Jakarta, July 15, 2011.
