David Foster and Friends in Japan 2010

David Foster Comes Back to Japan After 16 Years as Part of his Asian Concert Tour

David Foster, hitmaker during the golden age of the adult-oriented rock genre from the 80s to the early 90s will come back to Japan for concerts on October 19 and 20 at Hall A of the Tokyo International Forum. The last time he was in Japan to perform was 16 years ago at the “JT Super Producers 94″ concert at the Budokan in 1994.

As part his 5-country Asian tour which includes stops in Manila, Bangkok, Jakarta, Singapore, a spectacular line-up of guests will perform his signature songs. The “Friends” include Peter Cetera, former lead singer of Chicago known for worldwide hits such as “Hard to Say I’m Sorry” and “The Best of Me”; Natalie Cole, R&B queen who has taken the world by storm with her duet “Unforgettable” with Nat King Cole; Charice, a teenage newcomer already huge in the US who debuted this year with a smash hit, which immediately landed 5th on the US iTunes singles chart; new R&B star Ruben Studdard who won Season 2 of American Idol Season; and the Canadian tenors, 4 singers with beautiful voices and harmonies; among others.

To commemorate this event, a spectacular CD compilation of Foster’s signature songs will be launched on September 15. Packed with the “Foster sound” and the “Foster magic” which has made vocalists’ talents shine and has transcended generations, genres and nationalities, this compilation will include 34 songs on 2 discs.

Of particular note, Michael Jackson and Madonna’s recordings are together in the same CD. Aside from them, the spectacular line-up of performers include Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Peter Cetera, Natalie Cole, Seiko Matsuda, and Andrea Bocelli, all together in one compilation made possible precisely because of David Foster.

Tickets go on sale on July 24.

    Although this discussion is geared more toward the Japan/Asia tour of DF&F, I would like to comment on the commemorative CD to mark the occasion. Folks, just look at the singers and the quality of the songs. Nobody can argue that for Charice, the ‘newbie’ in the group, to be included in such an illustrious list of accomplished performers, David is announcing to the music world that Charice is the REAL DEAL of this generation. Her destiny to super stardom cannot be denied!

      She must have to really establish herself and be reasonably well-known to the American mainstream to be able to sell tickets to halls and arenas of ever. But to me time it not yet ripe. Celine Dion and other singers did it after some years in the industry Let’s be patient. Charice had waited for her chance for over 8 years. why can’t we?

    I agree that the DF&F group should include at least Honkong to be able to get a foot in that humongous market which is showing interest and are quite receptive to the western type of entertainment now. I was thinking all along that the purpose of this “Asian” tour was to be able to touch base with that specific market. They can’t go wrong there unless they feel that part of Asia doesn’t have any respect for copyrights or very good copyright regulations.

    Time permits, definitely I will watch this concert tour when it hit Manila to show my love and support not only for our Princess Charice but also for DF. Just can’t forget the the drama that unfolded when Charice delivered a very touching farewell remarks at the end of DF and Friends Ten Day City Tour in Vancouver, Canada. Don’t want to elaborate more on what had transpired during that said moment because even I only did watch it on videos, a Chaddict like me knew of the story. I feel envy for those people that personally witness this event but feel sorry for those who did not yet watched this even on videos because it is only one of the many great live performances of Charice. My friendly advice to the new Chaster, before watching the video, be sure to prepare a Chaster paraphernalia now available on all Charicemania outlets worldwide.

    first, they experience her all by herself, with only her reputation preceding her (but what credentials!), and the stage devoid of any accompaniment, connecting with them with one of their own songs (albeit in English) through that sublime rendition of Crescent Moon.

    then with this DFF tour, they will see the context against which her talent is measured and the company she keeps, with the caliber of David and the other artists on this tour.

    with the seed of Crescent Moon planted in their hearts, her live performances of her other songs on this tour will be welcomed all the more, something that is critical in what they say is a difficult market to penetrate.

    Aside from Indonesia, Charice has already laid the foundation for this tour. Like DF has already said “….my career now rests in the hands of a 17 year old” (from 10-23-09 in MSG).

    Sure smells like a success to me.
