I really like Ed's albums (and of course Frank and Todd). I'm in.

I'm sure I'll be getting that Zodd Zundgren soon... but today i got tix for the Park West Show in December! Its on a Saturday, so it'll be a day of Christmas Shopping and Todd! :D

Also, I don't suppose anyone is headed to Virginia for Toddstock. I found out the day after tix went on sale and they're all gone. Only 500 available they say.

^^He was a varsity tackle and a hell of a block, and when he played his guitar he made the canyons rock.

Listening to Rundgren Radio last night they said the December shows will be the White Night show except w/o the screens and the Global Girls. I was hoping for the White Night show but with, you know, the White Night show. Oh, well. It will be good anyway.

And here is an Unpredicable setlist:

When I asked my wife if she wanted to go Christmas Shopping downtown Chicago this year and finish with a TR show, she asked which show he was playing. She had seen all 3 above, but wasn't sure if she wanted to see the White Knight tour again. Then I heard that it was the Unpredictable tour and she was into seeing that again, so I got tickets. Now, it seems its the White Knight one, ugh. It wasn't bad, but doing it w/out the bg singers or screens... hmmm... Still, its TR so I'll hope that he throws a wrench into it somehow! :)

What does "...except w/o the screens and the Global Girls."... mean?

From what I heard, my impression was that they will play the White Knight set list (as TFKA listed above) but without the video screens from the earlier WKn shows that partially obscured the band and without the two "go go girls" that were also part of the earlier WKn shows and were also part of the Global tour.

Well, now that I've read through the entire thread I'm curious as to how Initiation is not on anyone's 'fave' list.
I see "Born to Synthesize" mentioned a few times yet never the album itself. I rather dig it and it may even be my 'fave', Side One more so.

Saw Todd Rundgren's Utopia in '76 and while I don't recall the set list, I do remember it was my first concert with a laser light show and that I left very energized.

Initiation album, one of my favorites and Utopia as well as Todd concerts in the 70's and 80's featured many of those songs, great live action... :!:
