Todd Rundgren Targets Albany for Virtual Concert Tour in A Socially Distanced World

Todd Rundgren  Targets Albany for Virtual Concert Tour in A Socially Distanced World

ALBANY — Todd Rundgren - recording artist, producer, songwriter and tech pioneer, has announced his 2021 Clearly Human virtual tour, featuring 25 performances, each of which, organizers say, will be “geo-fenced and tailored” to a different US city. 

The 25 performance “tour” kicks off Feb. 14 with a Buffalo, N.Y. show, and continues Feb. 16 with a show tailored for Albany, eventually concluding March 22 with a Seattle date.    

Each performance will emanate from a Chicago venue and each of the shows will be “localized” to give both the band and the fans a sense of place. That is, local landmarks will appear on the video wall, catering for the band and crew will feature dishes associated with each city, etc. 

Single-ticket purchases in the U.S. will be limited to fans with zip codes corresponding to that show’s greater metropolitan area. 

Each show will feature Rundgren and an expanded 10-piece band performing songs from his 50-year-plus catalog, as well as his entire 1989 album ‘Nearly Human’, which will also be re-releasied on CD and colored vinyl. 

Remote meet-and-greets with Rundgren will be available at every show, as will options to select viewing from multiple camera angles and to be featured on several rows of video screens that will serve as the real-time “virtual audience” for the evening. 

The band for the Clearly Human Tour: Kasim Sulton (Bass), Prairie Prince (Drums), Eliot Lewis (Keys), Gil Assayas (Synth), Bruce McDaniel (Guitar), Bobby Strickland (Sax), Steven Stanley (Trombone), plus the erstwhile “Global Girls”: Michele Rundgren, Grace Yoo, and Ashle Worrick (Background Vocals).

Single tickets are priced at $35, with an array of premium add-ons and multi-date bundles available. The virtual box office is now open: ToddRundgren.NoCapShows.com
