As someone who, in popular-music terms, definitely qualifies as a bit of an “old dog,” David Foster has been remarkably adept at teaching himself new tricks over a career that dates back to playing backup for Ronnie Hawkins and Chuck Berry as a teenager during the mid-1960s.

These days, however, the Victoria-born songwriter, producer, composer and occasional “reality” TV star — who’s served a key role in the superstar successes of Céline Dion, Chicago, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli and Michael Bublé, to name but a few — admits he’s not feeling it in the studio anymore. He has, for the moment at least, run out of new tricks.

Hence the announcement earlier this week of Foster’s first-ever Canadian tour, a 10-city jaunt that will touch down in Toronto environs three times in June: at Roy Thomson Hall on June 4, at Kitchener’s Centre in the Square on June 6 and at Casino Rama on June 7.
