AWATS, Amsterdam, February 8, 2010
Review by Rens Korevaar (Switch to
So the continent in Europe may be satisfied that Todd and his band came over to Amsterdam in the Netherlands to show that he is still A main Wizard and obvious a Star. Sold out, just before closing of the ticket office the venue Paradiso watched a breathtaking 56 minutes show of the 1973 record. Like a small fairy tale, a joyful carol, a musical in 12 original and colourful dresses and a great band Todd impressed with his performance. And no it was not an easy song to sing. 'A wizard, a true star' is a complex record in which Todd as a young man of 25 years young in 1973 showed that complexity sounded as music for the ears. And now in his 61 years of youth he was there in the same complexity in 2010. No copy of it all, but the original first!!
The volume and the technique wasn't 100%, but in this former church -- and since 40 years our rock-temple in Holland -- I still believe in him.
Mary Lou, Todd and Michele, thanks for just the small shaking hands, hugs and talks after the show in the cellars of Amsterdam. Return if you want to the continent of Europe. There is more music to reshow. I will take care of the cleaning (with a maximum of 12 dresses!).
See you in music: Rens Korevaar, Netherlands, Doetinchem (formerly Den Haag).
