Las Vegas, Nevada is a city unlike any other in the world.  It is a city where you can visit, Paris, Venice, New York, Mandalay Bay, New Orleans and Egypt……all within a few miles of each other.

Las Vegas is also a city where there is so much talent that one could go to a different show or event almost every night and never repeat.  Top entertainers perform for years in the city and others come for only a few weeks,  Then there are the stars that come in for only one night and bring a unique and fabulous show to the city. David Foster  presented a show on May 11, 2009.  Held at the Mandalay Bay, it was one of those special one-night experiences.

David Foster brought together one of the most unique and talented group of entertainers one could find anywhere.  The talent spanned many different, unique styles and each was one of the best in their field.  Heather Headley, Brian McKnight, Paul Anka, Donny Osmond, Cher, and Clay Aiken…all on one night.

David was like the “energizer bunny”.  He is full of more energy than most people.  Once the program started, he was involved with each act and was constantly adding his own wit and information to the show.  The show lasted 3 hours and David was on the entire time.

For me, the highlight of the evening was seeing and hearing Clay Aiken on the stage, doing what he does best……singing.  Clay sounded wonderful and looked comfortable and handsome.   Clay performed a medley of hits that Foster wrote and were originally performed by Peter Cetera.  They included Hard To Say I’m Sorry, You’re The Inspiration, and The Glory of Love. The audience gave Clay a great deal of support and a standing ovation.

An interesting side event of this performance was documented on Amazon on the day after the concert.  Clay’s rankings of sales of his album, On My Way Here, rose from 22,155 to 2,523 in 24 hours (1 is the best). That’s pretty good for an album that was a year old.

Overall, “David Foster and Friends” was an amazing concert.  I would love to see the concert again!

It certainly ended up being a wonderful evening!

  1. This made me laugh – that is why Clay is so fantastic – he can hit notes on demand!
    I think these 2 guys really appreciate each other and that is how it should be! The pictures are appreciated too – love them all! Thank you!

  2. Thank you for the pictures and the video. I love the pictures. The video is very short. You can see that Clay and David can work together. Clay voice is perfection and can song at any time. Thank you CANN.

  3. Clay sure looked and sounded wonderful. David didn’t make it easy for Clay to finish his song though. Good memories.
