A star formation musician is coming for a concert to Vancouver in October for the thirtieth anniversary of the David Foster Foundation.
Concert tickets are already on sale for the event on October 21st.
On Monday, the foundation announced its first wave of confirmed presentations: Steven Tyler, Jay Leno, Robin Thicke, The Tenors, Matteo Bocelli and Laura Bretan. Other musicians will come, they said in a press release.
Tickets for the gala concert at Rogers Arena cost from $ 49 to $ 119, plus taxes.
“The portion of concerts on our 30th anniversary gala will be one of the biggest nights of Vancouver music, as David Foster is joined by Steven Tyler and a handful of remarkable entertainers,” said Michael Ravenhill, CEO of David Foster Foundation.
Over the past 30 years, the foundation said they spent millions to cover non-medical expenses for more than 1,000 Canadian families with children undergoing rescue organ transplants.
The foundation also promotes the registration of organ donors.
“Over 90% of Canadians support organ donor registration, but less than 25% of us are registered,” added Ravenhill. “When families face the most difficult times of their lives – when their baby is sick and needs a transplant – our role is to come alongside the family and take that financial weight so that they can concentrate on the whole their focus on the baby and do not have to worry about losing their home or wondering where they are to get the money to pay their bills.
Foster, originally from Victoria, was won 16 Grammys in his career. He founded his eponymous foundation in Victoria in 1986.
