Word on the street
Though a shroud of secrecy has kept many of the details of the upcoming live re-creation of Todd Rundgren's classic album of the 70s, a few tempting morsels have slipped through the gaps. While many have assumed that the show will be a note-perfect rendition of the original studio breakthrough, insiders have hinted at something much more extravagant.

Apparently, this will be a production to rival Las Vegas and Broadway. Video accompaniment, special effects, and at least eight costume changes --- some incorporating original outfits from the AWATS era --- as well as a "special secret opening act" have all been rumored. While still stinting on the details, Rundgren confirms that this will be far beyond any of his recent tours in theatrical scope. "This is much more than a musical re-creation,” says Rundgren. “It will be a cultural event in the world of Todd fans".
