Tickets are $69, $49, $39.His solo career started out successfully with such hits as I Saw The Light and Hello It's Me (which was a reworked Nazz tune). He formed a band called Utopia (or Todd Rundgren's Utopia) which concentrated on eccentric progressive epics, while also continuing to release solo albums. His production work started early, with work for Sparks and the New York Dolls, and continued with Meat Loaf, XTC, The Psychedelic Furs, and many others.A Wizard, A True Star, the title of an early solo album, succinctly describes founder/front man Todd Rundgren. Many of his solo albums, including Something/Anything were made completely by himself. That is, he played all the instruments, sang all the vocals, did all of the recording, editing, mixing, and mastering, and even distributed the album through his own record label, Bearsville. Rundgren has made a lasting impact on both the form and content of popular music and has along the way created a body of work that is among the most intriguing and impressive in Rock and Roll history. bergenPAC is located at 30 North Van Brunt Street Englewood, NJ 07631 For tickets and further information please call: (201) 227-1030 or visit: www.bergenPAC.org
