David and Charice

 

The ‘Hitman Return’ concert will be held in Mandalay Bay on October 15, 2010. It promises to be a memorable night filled with unforgettable musical numbers and entertainment that will make your Vegas trip even more meaningful. Aside from Charice and Ne-Yo, other David Foster friends who will grace the show include Seal, Martina McBride, Donna Summer, Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole, Kenny Loggins, Michael Bolton, Ruben Studdard, Earth, Wind & Fire plus some surprise guests.
According to David Foster, he will cheat a little with the Las Vegas show as he used up a lot of his catalogue for the first edition.

“For instance, this show will feature Dreamweaver, a song composed by Gary Wright, which is not in my catalogue,” said Foster. “I will definitely go deeper in earlier catalogues.”
