"We are thrilled to bring Fastlove to audiences in North America," says James Taylor, Entertainers' company director, who created the tribute show for the late artist.

"Fastlove is a respectful tribute to one of the greatest and most influential musicians of all time. It is a stunning stage show taking the world by storm," says Crane-Ross.
