2008 starts with the following of Dreams in Colour Live Tour, where David Fonseca plays in the majority of Portugal’s auditoriums, always sold out. Once again, just like in 2007, he was invited to play at one of the world’s most prestigious festivals – South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, to present his last solo work, only with his guitar and a loop station.
The highest point of this tour was in April, at Coliseu dos Recreios in Lisbon (sould out). This production was made with such detail that proved once more all the creativity and talent David Fonseca has.
2008 was also the year for the first steps in David’s career internationalization. A new perspective from the European market was gained with the release of “Dreams in Colour” in Italy, Greece and in Spain; and also with the performance at the MTV Greece opening in Athens; In Milan with Gabriela Cilmi and One Republic, and as opening act for the British band Keane in Madrid and Barcelona.
In the end of the 2008 “12.04.08 COLISEU – DREAMS IN COLOUR LIVE”, his first solo DVD, was released in the end of 2008, a memento of the amazing night in April at Coliseu dos Recreios. It was #1 on the week of its release and was Gold Record.
Beside being awarded Platinum Record for the first time in his career, David Fonseca saw his singles “Superstars” and “Kiss me, oh kiss me” become #1 on the Portuguese National Airplay Top, and also crossed the country and performed in the main festivals.
