review of todd show in st paul, mn on july 2
Review by coleslough (Switch to
the show in st paul was outstanding.
todd r. and john entwistle from the Who both were
spotted signing autographs for folks near the
"merchandise table" about 40 minutes before the show.
todd seemed to be in very good mood. saw him talking
with a lady and her small daughter just offstage just
before the band went on. he waved several times to his
fans he spotted in the crowd.
being a fan of his or not, todd truly dominated the
show. open my eyes (2nd number) was solid, and hello
its me was well received by fans. the crowd was large,
easily 5000 on the vast lawn by the capital.
todd also sang "bang the drum" (his "4 minute cure for
kids attending who have ADD"), and sang lead on the
majority of beatle tunes performed in the second set.
he even got down off the stage and took a micraphone
out to the front row of the crowd to get their
participation on hey jude.
one could tell he was bored on a few of the tunes he
played back-up on (like some of the ambrosia mush), as
he would horse around and make "assorted
gesticulations" to his fans in the crowd(of which
there were many).
ann wilson and todd were a good vocal compliment, but
my gosh she needs to go on the adkins diet. much
better if her sister were there to listen to (and look
the band was tight, todd was excellent/very
impressive, crowd loved the show.
interestingly, after the show, ann wilson scowled at
those fans yelling her name as she exited the stairs
off the stage to go to her dressing room (one could
see her walk between the stage and her private
dressing room). she looks like one unhappy person (or
else she was running late for the grand slam special
tr scampered off to his trailer.
todd was a different performer, in terms of
preparation, vs the LA show in april.
this is a tour not to miss.
