You already know that area favorite Todd Rundgren will be performing with the Akron Symphony and Akron Youth Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, August 31.
But on the next day, Sunday September 1, Rundgren will return to The Kent Stage for a more traditional gig "An Evening With Todd Rundgren."
This will be Runt's third gig in the area this year as he played the Kent Stage on his electronica fueled "Official State Visit tour" for his latest album, State.
"An Evening With.." will be a more traditional show featuring his "super band" of bassist Kasim Sulton, drummer Prairie Prince, guitarist Jesse Gress, keyboardist John Ferenzik, and background Singers Mary Lou Arnold and Michele Rundgren.
The setlists for the shows will reach back through his his entire recording career (that means more hits, folks) and there will probably not be jumpsuits involved.
I heard some folks were disappointed in the State Visit Tour setlists so, here's your chance to get the Todd you know and love in all his "Hello, It's Me," "The Last Ride" glory..
