While Foster proves to be witty and charming through out, it can be argued that this concert is an ego trip for him. Pretty much every performer talks about how wonderful he is particularly in a couple of videos which really have no place in the show and are most likely left over from a lifetime achievement tribute that was done for him. In addition, he has a tendency to speak as though he's solely responsible for the success of some of the songs presented even though Foster's contribution was relatively negligible or he was part of a team. It's clear, however, that Foster adores everyone of the performers appearing and is having a blast going down memory lane with them. Each person is well showcased and obviously is putting their heart and soul into the performance. All in all if you can over look Foster's grandstanding it's an amazing experience.
Needless to say, I bought "The Hit Man Returns" right after watching.
I dont know how to thanks Mr.Hit Man but anyways would just say its awasome and the best concert on bluray even technically with best sound and video too.
David you are the Best and now one can compete your by anyways.
Highly recommended for decent music lovers and the performance giving by all the artists in Buray one and this follow-up is outstanding.
Concert:- 5 out of 5
Video:- 4.5 out of 5
Audio:- 4.5 out of 5
You will fall for it and best buy from Amazon.
Hit Man: David Foster And Friends suffers from the setting, it seems to me. Two parts of the orchestra are separated from each other physically, and the back-up singers are in an odd place . Also the featured singers don't get the fabulous support, by orchestra and backup singers, they get on his other albums. I think a square stage, instead of this very wide and shallow one, would have helped the whole sound a lot.
I didn't know he wrote or produced so many great songs especially
during 80's & 90's.
As a Blu-ray Disc, I'd rate Video Quality 4.5 Star and Audio 5 Star.
As stated this show won't be complete without proper 5.1 surround
sound system. The sound with DTS Master Audio 5.1 was just fabulous!
It really gave a good workout for my home theater system.
There are several big name artists such as Andrea Bocelli,Peter Cetera,
Brian Mcknight,Josh Groban etc..however there are some surprises too.
Young singer Charice from Philipines was fantastic!
This concert is enjoyable for almost everyone especially if you like pop
music from 80's and 90's. It's definitely recommended for music lovers.
But the one artist that I couldnt beleive was Charise. OMG I was almost in tears as she sang Witney Houston as I remembered her. How that sound can come from such a small body is mind blowing. I closed my eyes and I could have sworn Whitney was there.
Just buy this Disk !!!!!!!!!!!!! .
I dont think I have ever felt like this after watching a concert disk. The old songs I never knew who wrote them ended up being David Foster. This man is Awesome and from my side unknown......
Just bought the next concert disk David Foster Hitman RETURNS. From all reports its even better.
