Todd's Chicago Concert

Review by Anthony Belsanti (Switch to

Just wanted to give you a review of Todd's Chicago concert. It was held at Lincoln Park Zoo's Jammin' At The Zoo in Chicago. There was the largest crowd I've ever seen for Todd, he even commented on it (maybe 5,000?). He did the entire With A Twist album, with the exception of Born To Synthesize and Medley: I'm So Proud. Todd's voice was as strong as ever and the band was incredibly tight. Kasim's back-up vocals made me remember how much I miss Utopia. On Born To Synthesize, the band did about 8 minutes of pure jammin', with a fantastic guitar solo from Jesse Gress. It had very jazzy overtones. Although the concert was enjoyable and I was glad to see Todd, it was disappointing that he never played his guitar and only played for maybe 1 1/2 hr.. In fact the opening band The Nadas played longer. Also Todd did not do an encore. We heard a lot of fans complaining about that and saying that they wouldn't come to his show again because they were so disappointed. That's about it, I'll be in touch.
