I've got that wonderful AWATS DVD. It's a really good capturing of the show and there's something really fun at the end. No spoilers.

I caught Dolenz/Tork with Nesmith coming on for the encore in Monterey a few years ago, and Mickey was, deservedly, taking a victory lap. He's still doing really well. 

Sheff reminds me that the corporate entity Chicago has told Lamm that he's no longer allowed to contribute. That makes mehttp://robertlammsolo.com/biog...

And Cross is still sailing the seas of smooth due to that "Best New Artist" and more he won that first year. Ah, well. And I didn't know Molland was still around. But he's not Pete Ham.
 
Got the tickets.  Still plenty left.  I'm hoping for a special show.  We're the second stop out of the box and the Civic is one of his favorite places in his home away from home.  We're still in shake down mode being the second stop.  I asked the wife if she wanted to go see Todd.  She was good to go and I as I told her who else was going to be there, I saved Cross for last and she got real excited.  Yeah, she can still listen to Sailing over and over again.  I pulled the album out not so long ago and she knew all the words for all of the songs even after not hearing it for at least twenty years.  This should be a fun night.  We don't get a lot of good Friday or Saturday shows in this town anymore.  We're sorta the B circuit for really great shows.

You have inspired me to go see him again for the first time since the 70's.  He's going to be at the Akron Civic on a Saturday (w00t!) September 28th for his White Album tour.  TODD RUNDGREN, MICKY DOLENZ, CHRISTOPHER CROSS, JOEY MOLLAND, JASON SHEFF are the lineup.  Molland from Badfinger and Sheff from Chicago and I get to see a Monkee !  I suppose it will be ala his Faithfull album.  The wife has learned to like Todd over the years (she didn't have much of a choice), but Cross and Dolenz should seal this deal for her.  I'm also going to grab the DVD of this AWATS concert which was taped at the same Akron Civic back when.  The Akron Civic is one of my most favorite venues ever.  Such a beautiful place with sound to match.  It also has a full tilt working Wurlitzer pipe organ.

He did AWATS start to finish, with his original (re-tailored) costumes from his career. I was hugging the stage at the SF show, and a few rows back, sidelined due to arthritis, was Roger Powell. He's in this performance, filmed earlier in the tour. I've seen Todd in many configurations (alone at the Fillmore, the EDM dance party in Napa, the "unpredictable" tour and "hits" tours recently, and the recording of 2nd Wind at the Palace of Fine Arts are some I loved) but this....at the end, this part, when the quarter notes signal the starting of the end (but there's more) I just closed my eyes and leaned my head back and tried to soak it all in. A pinnacle of an extraordinary career.

I've seen Todd well over 30 times over the years and somehow managed to miss this tour. Don't quite recall why, just didn't make it. Got the DVD but man I wish I was there. But I did make the 11 voice orchestra Acapella tour and I count that as one of the best shows of his I've seen.

Let's pretend we're persuasive

Here we are again, the start of the end

But there's more


I only want to see if you'll give up on me


But there's always more

We let them find their own way
While everyone chooses / To ignore the abuses
We've all got excuses

We keep on, keep on cranking them out

And nobody has the time / To look at the great design
But they're all from the same bloodline

Violent men, hard-headed women, unloved children
