Todd Rundgren: "Todd/Healing" Finale in Jersey



As he did last year with "A Wizard/A True Star," Todd Rundgren listened to his fans and performed this year's requested albums, "Todd" from 1974 and 1981's "Healing," back to back, in their entirety, for five shows, with the finale being last night in Morristown, New Jersey.

Words fail me, actually. It was a performance that lacked nothing. Rundgren's voice and guitar playing evoked his classic performances of the seventies, when he wore his heart on his sleeve and gave all he had to give. This was one very special night.

I'm not usually prone to jealousy, but this is an exception.

Glad you caught the show, Sal. If words stop failing, I'd love to hear more.

Great pictures! I was in the balcony, at the very back; even from that distance it was a phenomenal performance.

I'm relatively new to his music, having bought my first Todd album just last year, but I already consider myself an obsessed fan. Last night was a great introduction to how amazing he is live! Can't wait for the next one.

Hi Sal, I was there at the show, your pics make me feel like I am back there(so great). The theatre was wonderful,as was the audience. It seemed like everyone wanted all others to enjoy the same. Some "TODD" songs really took me back to "NAZZ" days.I have never experienced anything like the show's ending.
What I experienced at that show was "MY BEING WAS TAKEN TO A DIFFERENT DIMENSION"
