This should be cool. Check out the setlist from the previous symphonic concert and the link to the crowd sourced video.

Should be an intersesting evening.

Semi-formal to formal attire for fans is encouraged.  OPTIONAL of course.

The Todd Rundgren with the Akron Symphony Orchestra and Akron Youth Symphony concert will be Rundgren's third symphonic concert in North America; in June of last year, Todd performed two concerts with the Rockford Symphony Orchestra in Rockford, IL.  Both concerts in Rockford were presented by RundgrenRadio.com.  The orchestra concert in Akron will consist of both the Akron Symphony Orchestra and Akron Youth SymphonyThis will be the first time ever Todd has performed with two different orchestras on the same stage at the same time and the first time he has performed with a youth orchestra.

The idea of Todd performing with a full orchestra was the brainchild of Netherland radio DJ and music connoisseur Co de Kloet.  His idea came to life in September of 2011 when Todd performed two concerts in the Netherlands backed by the Dutch Metropole Orchestra.  Todd returned to Amsterdam in November of last year and performed again with the Dutch Metropole Orchestra in front of a sold out crowd at the famous Paradiso venue.  The conductor for the Dutch concerts was Steve Slidewell and the orchestral arrangements were done by Tom Trapp.  The North American concerts would be difficult to do without the generosity of the Dutch Metropole Orchestra sharing their charts from those concerts.
