Tons of updates from RundgrenRadio
Thanks to Doug & Melinda at RundgrenRadio.com
(1) Todd Rundgren was the guest last night on Rundgren Radio! You can listen to a replay at rundgrenradio.com or on iTunes podcasts. David Skye from Shout Records also called in to discuss future official bootleg releases like the new Todd Rundgren For Lack of Honest Work 3 box CD .
Todd answered a lot of our questions like “Will any of the shows be available for webcast like AWATS”?
(2) The popular 80’s band the Fixx have been added to the lineup for two of the Todd/Healing concerts this September! They will be openers for the St. Louis concert on 9/10 and the Indianapolis concert on 9/11. Please note the St. Louis concert start time has been moved to 7pm. Cy Curnin, lead singer of the Fixx, will be a guest on RundgrenRadio.com for a special show on Sunday August 29th at 2pm ET!
(3) If you are out of the loop on Todd’s tour this September, he will be performing both the Todd and Healing albums live in their entirety! There are only 6 opportunities to see one of more of these special shows. More information is available at
(4) The official tour shirt with artwork created by super longtime Todd fan Bill Bricker of Toddata.com is available now at the Todd Store:
(5) If you are considering a trip to see any of these concerts, super Todd fan Jill Mingo has put together a charter bus for fans to get from one venue to another for a few of the shows. For more info visit:
(6) Tickets are still on sale for the Roy Firestone interviewing Todd Rundgren event being held in Philadelphia on 9/13/2010. If you’re planning on going, here is the link for buying tickets:
Roy has informed us that he has worked behind the scenes to prepare for this event including talking to Patti Smith, Daryl Hall, Michele/Rebop/Ruth Rundgren, Kasim Sulton, and more. Plus, there will be audio and video played on the big screen during parts of the interview. And, get this --- there will be a guitar on stage! What happens with said guitar is anyone’s guess.
(7) One of the Todd/Healing concerts will be held in Muskegon, MI and the World Premiere of the Toddstock movie will be held there the night before at Carousel Cinema and will be followed by a party. Todd will be in attendance at both and all party attendees will have the opportunity to have a professional photographer take a photo of them with Todd & Michele (photo can be purchased online for only $5)! More info on this event, including how to get tickets, can be found here …
Limited seating and sales are going well so don’t delay on this one!
