Tickets to HITMAN David Foster and Friends Concerts Sold Out Within Three Weeks and Jose Carreras Concert Selling Fast

SINGAPORE–(Marketwire – September 27, 2010) –   The HITMAN strikes again with sell-out performances for the opening gala concerts on Friday, 29 October and Saturday, 30 October 2010. Tickets for José Carreras concert at the Esplanade Concert Hall on Tuesday, 2 November 2010 are also almost entirely sold out. Fans are encouraged to book their choir stalls tickets fast, which have just been released, for the José Carreras concert to avoid disappointment.

Responsible for creating some of the biggest sensations in music history, the great turnaround artist David Foster, has produced hits such as Celine Dion’s chart-topping hit, “The Power of Love” and “Because You Loved Me”, Natalie Cole’s “Unforgettable… With Love”, “Unbreak My Heart” from Toni Braxton and “I will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston.

“The artists are thrilled with the overwhelming support received from fans in Singapore and the region,” says Mindy Coppin, Senior Vice President and Director of IMG Artists Asia Pacific and Executive Producer of the Singapore Sun Festival 2010. “The choir stalls seats have just been released for José Carreras in Concert so fans are encouraged to act immediately to secure their seats.”

Fans of José Carreras can also catch him at an exclusive on-stage interview, In Conversation with José Carreras, on 31 October at the LASALLE College of the Arts to discover his extraordinary life and career. With tickets priced at only S$30 each, fans would be able to get up close and personal with the man in distinctive voice. A rare opportunity that should not be missed.

Concert goers are encouraged to act fast to avoid disappointment, as other popular events such as Natalie Cole in Concert on 31 October, George Benson in Concert on 4 November, The Creole Choir of Cuba on 5 November and Silk Road Odyssey featuring the Singapore Chinese Orchestra on 6 November are also experiencing very strong ticket sales.
