Todd Rundgren has been added to The Community Theatre's schedule for
Thursday, October 9 at 8 pm. Tickets are $37-52 and go on sale to the
public on Friday, August 22 at 9 am.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Rundgren found success on the pop
charts with songs such as "Hello, It's Me," "Can We Still Be Friends"
and "I Saw the Light." Later on in the 1980s, with his group Utopia,
he had hits with "Road to Utopia" And "Bang on the Drum," which, if
you've gone to any ball park or arena, is probably blasted at some
point during a game.

Rundgren's latest CD, Arena, will be released in September, and is a
tribute to the big sound of guitar-driven arena rock anthems. The
album showcases his unique songwriting style and sonically captures
the essence and energy of "arena" rock with bombastic, guitar-driven
tunes like "Mountaintop," "Strike" and "Mad," while the anthemic
song "Mercenary," transports you to a stadium with its epic
chorus, "How Do You Like Me Now?," resounding to every seat in the

"I found myself just going out and doing this sort of guerilla guitar
quartet thing around the country and around Canada," said
Rundgren. "So when it came time to make a record, I thought maybe
I'll just continue in that vein and write something that is
appropriate to the guitar, since the fans seem to be enjoying it so
much. So when I decided to write a new album, I knew beforehand it
was going to be this kind of old-school guitar-rock record."
