I'm in the nosebleeds compared to you guys. The screen should look nice at about 10 rows back.

Tour starts tomorrow!

It appears to be similar to the Saban in Beverly Hills (DZ in 2015)

Is Jim Thorpe, PA near Philly? And is it Todd's hometown?

^^Wikipedia says Todd was born in Philadelphia and grew up in Upper Darby. Upper Darby is a 23 minute drive to Philly and Jim Thorpe is a 93 minute drive.

I still think he did the Global show stop in Grass Valley because his sister lives in Georgetown, I used to run into her at a Telecom Building in the foothills years ago... :idea:

Coolio. :lol: I wonder how early you’re supposed to go for the VIP meet and greet. It doesn’t say on the ticket.

That's a near perfect setlist! :twisted:

The only downside for me is that they're not playing The Seven Rays & apparently, The Ikon is abridged but Utopia Theme is the full version.

I was careful not to look at any of the visuals in the reviews I've read of last night's opening show. It'll be hard but I'm not going to listen to any audience recordings either, since I want most of it to be a surprise...

I won't quibble that they didn't customize the set personally for me, but for me as with a lot of artists, some of my favorite stuff is the least popular stuff. The two Utopia albums I haven't listened to a lot in my life are Todd Rundgren's Utopia and RA. By contrast I'm a big fan of the Utopia (suits) album, Swing to The Right, Oblivion, POV, and even Deface the Music. I wish they would have included more of that stuff. Oops! is still my favorite and Another Live is high on my list too and they get a lot of play in the set list. Adventures in Utopia which is probably their most commercially successful has never got to me as much as the others (maybe because it's their most blatantly commercial album). I'll have to brush up on TR'sU and RA leading up to the show. My Utopia box set is due today.

TR U is one of my top 10 all time albums, definitely a concept record and should be listened to front to back, shear genius... :idea:

The Utopia Theme is pretty awesome. That will be a great way to start the show. :D

Listening to Adventures too. I forgot how much I liked all those songs.

Saw some more photos. The drum kit was in two different spots. Wonder if it's mobile? Maybe one pic is the first set, and the other the second.

It's all holograms. They move the drum kit with the flip of a switch.
Live or Memorex? Only the stage manager knows for sure.
