The first night of Todd Rundgren's Unpredictable Tour kicked off last night at Summerfest in Milwaukee and it certainly lived up to its name although most die hard Todd fans like me (this was my 22nd time seeing him live) know that surprises are the norm.
The set had some very interesting covers ("Don't Bogart That Joint" "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" "Hash Pipe" just to name a few) mixed in with Todd classics and deep cuts. I was particularly impressed with "It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference," "Compassion," and "Buffalo Grass." The band was in top form on those songs and Todd was just magical. Hearing "Lysistrata" and "One World" from the Utopia album Swing To The Right were most appropriate given the current times. Crowd pleasers "I Saw The Light" and "Hello It's Me" were also present.
When he comes to your town, check it out. This show is MUST SEE!!
