Review by S. Todd Post (Switch to

If you were a Todd fan, well you loved it!! If you were a Cars fan, it was enjoyable and fun. And Blondie fans had to love her voice, she did a good job and she is not completely washed up. Her dancing needs a little work though.

It was fun to see the crowd, average age maybe 40 years old. In all the show was complete, Todd made this a great show along with the band. I am not sure anyone else could do as well talking the place of lead singer Ocasek. Todd's style and presents clearly makes the New Cars "New" and exciting. There was a moment when Todd did his oops laugh when the song started off wrong, but of course in seconds it was back on tract. It is its own sound with a kind of a Utopia ring (in a way). The new song "Not Tonight" is so Cars that I would think Ric wrote it himself. Kasim was classic with his voice and style on the song "Drive". It was clearly a great show for all Cars and Rundgren fans. It had all the tunes people loved by the cars. Then you had to love Todd when the Nazz song "open your eyes" was played, as well as "Black Maria" (which is one of my favorites live) and which was a sweet surprise, I saw the light" and "bang on the drum all day" kept Todd fans happy. I give this a 8 or a 9 on a scale of 1-10. A must see!!
