NEW YORK, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The enormously successful Foster & Friends Hitman show is returning to Las Vegas for a series of shows at the Mandalay Bay Events Center with the first two performances scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 1st and on Thanksgiving Weekend Friday, Nov. 25th. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale in May.
Foster, the multi-talented 16-time GRAMMY winning producer, songwriter and maestro of ceremonies will once again host a lineup of talent including a return visit by show stopping “Glee” star Charice. His Mandalay Bay shows and the national tour of Foster & Friends previously included performances by Earth Wind & Fire, Jackie Evancho, Donna Summer, Andrea Bocelli, Seal, Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole, Josh Groban and scores of others.
“I love bringing all different sorts of talent together on stage for one night. These upcoming Foster & Friends shows will continue the tradition of one big party along with exciting combinations of artists performing together,” commented Foster.
"In a dizzying showcase, David Foster shows he is the rare music genius who can summon the greatest stars of both past and future generations," raved John Katsilometes from the Las Vegas Sun about the Hitman's previous Vegas show.
Last year's "Hit Man Returns: David Foster & Friends" just released in DVD/CD package on 143/Reprise Records will be broadcast throughout March as part of the "Great Performances" series on PBS. The original "Hitman" show broadcast from Mandalay Bay was one of PBS' most successful pledge shows. Foster, who is scheduled to appear on The Today Show on Wednesday, March 9th also will be visiting local PBS stations nationwide where fans will have the opportunity to make a pledge to their local station during the broadcast. Premiums will include the new DVD/CD and tickets to one of the "Hitman" Las Vegas shows.
