Review by Bruce Hicks (Switch to
Todd's show in Cleveland tonight was easily his best here in the last 20
years. To put it simply, Todd was "ON". Vocals (even though you could tell
he was getting past a cold, he was amazing...how'd he manage for 2 hours so
well?!), guitar prowess, and his unmistakable humor...he was "ON". The set
list was diverse and did not disappoint. Easily the best show I've seen him
do in the last 15 years. No obvious blunders (outside of those he
intentionally caused, and the issues that were beyond his control...left
side of stage had a power outage, Jessie's guitar failed during Love of the
Common Man for a few moments, and he made a relatively effortless switch to
correct the problem midway through). Except for the few morons that had to
yell something at the quietest point of Hawking, I was proud to be a
Clevelander at a Todd show, for a change. And ya know when Todd nails
Hawking and "Medley" (plus Marvin Gaye tune), he's more than mind bending.
There's only one Todd. He very much showed up in Cleveland tonight. A show
of this caliber is what keeps us coming back for more (in my case, since
1977)! Thanks Todd, and band!! By the way, what was "solo" about this show?
Ah, who cares....
