What in the world happened to Todd Rundgren. Nobody would buy our tickets for last night and boy were they smart. It was seriously the worst show I have ever seen, and I have seen some really bad shows.
I remember this sweet Todd Rundgren who sang songs from “Something/Anything”. Remember “Hello It’s Me”? That was one of the best songs I have ever heard. Remember “I Saw the Light”? Loved it too. “It Wouldn’t Have Made Any Difference” was another of my favorites.
Last night a very strange looking man with white hair on top and black hair underneath, ande a big pot belly, and very flabby arms came onto the stage. Who was this man? Okay, okay… we’ve all aged, but I didn’t even recognize him. The show was called “An Unpredictable Evening” and they weren’t kidding. It was unpredictably terrible. The band sounded like a bunch of kids playing in a garage without listening to each other or rehearsing. I don’t know what songs they were playing, but none of them were any I had ever heard before and most of them seemed like very bad covers.
The scariest part is that a lot of people were really into it. People were dancing, singing along, some even standing up to cheer at the end of every song. I haven’t heard Todd Rundgren’s name in about 25 years, but obviously these people have. Maybe he has a bunch of new albums that are sporting the horrible stuff he was playing last night. I don’t know, and honestly, I am not interested enough to find out.
I will tell you this too though: we left after a few songs and went home to watch the Academy Awards. I felt terribly about recommending a show to my husband that was not only awful, but relatively expensive too. Sorry honey! You can pick the next show — I promise!
Funny enough though, I just went onto iTunes and bought “Hello It’s Me”. It is fantastic! I played it for my daughter and she liked it too. I completely recommend purchasing this song, whether you were or are a Todd fan or not. It’s great.
