Miscellaneous Dates - 2002

Dates/venues/personnel subject to change.

Todd will be opening for Jethro Tull and Hall and Oates, plus will be going out with the Abbey Road tour again, this time featuring Todd Rundgren, Alan Parsons, Jack Bruce (Cream), Mark Farner (Grand Funk), Christopher Cross. Eric Carmen has dropped out of the tour, and some shows with him have been (or likely will be) cancelled. I am working with webmasters from the other artists' sites to insure that the schedule is the most accurate possible in these confusing times.

I am interested and will accept reviews and pictures of other artists on the Abbey Road tour, even for dates on which Todd is not playing

Note that Todd is not included in some dates. It is unclear if those dates will continue without Todd or Eric, or if Todd will step in. The "house band" includes Godfrey Townsend, Steve Murphy and John Beck.

Todd's latest update:

There's been a bit of confusion about where I'm going to be when this summer, which I will only attempt to clear up since it confuses me as well.

It should be obvious that I'm doing 2 different tours (not counting the odd dates in Texas). Concert promoters don't appreciate the same 'headliner' (ha ha) coming to the same market within the same year- they think that fans will only buy one ticket a season for any one act. Arguable as that assumption may be, the itineraries have been worked out to exclude me from any Abbey Road (Dung Beatle) shows that conflict with shows already booked by Hall & Oates, wherein I will be replaced by Eric Cartman... I mean Carmen. Actually, the Dung Beatles continue touring after I go off with H&O during the month of August.

To confuse things further, I have been inadvertantly included on the advertised bill in cities where I shouldn't appear and excluded from some that I should. What appears now on the Calendar channel (and below) is as close as I can figure it at this moment. Heads up for changes in mid-July.

Reviews and photos are welcomed and may be sent to TReviews@TRConnection.com. For photos, please follow these guidelines before sending (it really helps):
  1. To increase the probability of getting through the spam filter, address submissions to TReviews@TRConnection.com, with that exact capitialization.
  2. If possible, reduce photos to 72dpi, 800x600 (or 600x800 if vertical) before sending.
  3. Send photos in batches that are less than 10MB. If a message with attachments exceeds 10MB, send multiple messages.
  4. Do not embed spaces in file names. Keep to letters, numbers and dashes/underscores. Add .jpg as appropriate
  5. Rotate vertically oriented photos to proper view
  6. Please convert other formats to .jpg (.gif is OK, but .jpg preferred)
  7. Include your name for the credits
  8. Include the date the photo was taken
  9. Multiple photos may be zipped or stuffed. Should be if sending more than five at a time.
  10. All contributions are acknowledged automatically when received. If your photos aren't yet posted and you haven't received an acknowledgment, check via e-mail before you resend the photos. It may take a couple of days before they get posted.
None of these are binding, but your cooperation is much appreciated.
