Todd Rundgren recently announced that he will perform the world premiere of his 1973 psychedelic album A Wizard, A True Star in Akron, Ohio in September, followed by the British premiere of the album concert performance at the London HMV Hammersmith Apollo on 6th February 2010.

The band line-up was revealed by Todd Rundgren earlier this week on the Net.  The band will consist of Roger Powell - synthesizers and keyboards (Utopia), Greg Hawkes - synthesizers and keyboards (The Cars), Prairie Prince - drums (The Tubes), Jesse Gress - guitar (Tony Levin Band), Kasim Sulton - bass (Utopia) and Todd Rundgren - lead vocals and guitar.

Roger Powell?

I guess with Steve Jobs on vacation, Apple's giving him a vacation.

Don't expect a major upgrade to the Final Cut and Logic Studio between now and then.

Willie, as I understand is composing soundtracks, nowadays.

Who knows if he even plays drums anymore?

There are videos of him talking about the Fantom series on the Roland websites.

wow, this would have been a dream come true for me years ago.  I wish he'd come out to L.A. to do this show!
