Article Healing / Todd album mini tour

Indianapolis will be among only six cities worldwide to host a special performance by the legendary singer, composer and producer, Todd Rundgren. On Saturday, September 11, 2010, at Clowes Memorial Hall on the Butler University campus, Rundgren will present two of his classic albums – Todd (1974) and Healing (1981) – in their entirety.

Tickets are on sale now and available through Ticketmaster.

The Indy concert, and others slated for Akron, Ohio; Muskegon, Michigan; St. Louis, Missouri; Glenside, Pennsylvania; Morristown, New Jersey, are presented by Last fall, RundgrenRadio presented a short series of shows in the U.S. and Europe featuring Rundgren’s 1973 classic record, A Wizard, A True Star.

“If you love these records – and many people do – these shows will represent the first and probably only time they’ll be performed live front-to-back,” says Doug Ford, co-host of RundgrenRadio and a longtime Rundgren fan. “These shows are being presented by fans for the fans. Indianapolis has been an important market for Todd during his 40+ year long career, and bringing this show to Clowes is our way of saying ‘thanks’ to fans in Indy and other neighboring cities and towns for their many years of faithfully following Todd’s remarkable career.”

Rundgren’s music video for “Time Heals” (from Healing) was among the first to be played on MTV. The albums he’ll be performing in Indy also include such favorites as “A Dream Goes on Forever”, “Compassion”, “Tiny Demons” and “The Last Ride.”

Rundgren’s band for the special shows will include Kasim Sulton (Utopia), Prairie Prince (The Tubes), Greg Hawkes (The Cars), Jesse Gress and Bobby Strickland.

Todd Rundgren has released over 30 albums either as a solo artist or with his bands Nazz, Utopia, and The New Cars while producing acclaimed, successful records for artists as diverse as Badfinger, Meat Loaf, Daryl Hall & John Oates, Grand Funk Railroad, the New York Dolls, and XTC. He was also an early software developer.

Rundgren has been called “rock’s Renaissance man” by Entertainment Tonight and “a one-man Beatles” by Mojo. The BBC labeled him “a visionary without whom there would be no Prince, MTV, or access to Internet music … a master of every style from classic soul to bizarre electronica.” His hits include “Hello It’s Me”, “I Saw the Light”, “Love is the Answer” and “Bang the Drum All Day”, which has become a popular sports anthem.
