Minneapolis show is sept 15 Hennepin theatre

Rock ‘n' roll maverick Todd Rundgren returns to Minneapolis to perform his landmark, experimental 1973 album "A Wizard, A True Star" live in its entirety, plus many of his greatest hits. The prolific and innovative pop craftsman plays Hennepin Theatre Trust's State Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2009. He will be joined by Prairie Prince on drums, Rachel Haden, bass, Jesse Gress, guitar, Kasim Sulton on keyboard/guitar and other musicians yet to be confirmed.

"A Wizard, a True Star" was ahead of its time. With each song leading into the other, the album encompasses cosmic themes with a strong interest in spirituality and philosophy, psychedelic rock and avant-garde jazz fusion. On September 6, 2009, in Akron, OH, he is scheduled to perform the entire album live for the first time in his career. The Minneapolis date is one of only a handful of other anticipated U.S. performances.
