Todd Rundgren's British Premiere of A Wizard, A True StarFor immediate release / London, England -

Although Rundgren's breakthrough 1972 album, Something/Anything? is considered by many to be his masterpiece, the psychedelic impact and bordering-on-disturbing innovation of the follow-up, A Wizard, A True Star is arguably Rundgren's most experimental and influential album and is regarded as one of the most pioneering progressive rock albums of all time.
This will be the first time in Britain that he will perform the whole record live onstage, from start to finish. The first half of the concert will feature a selection of Rundgren's songs throughout his career, while the second half will consist of the entirety of A Wizard, a True Star. Originally released in 1973, much of the album is an extended medley after the fashion of The Beatles' late recordings. The effect of the songs merging one into another was immediate, infectious and dazzling; the lyrical content was often at once both tongue in cheek and hallucinogenic.
A full page colour interview with Todd Rundgren hit the UK newsstands Friday in the June 2005 edition of Classic Rock magazine. Todd mania continues to sweep the UK.
Please note - Todd's big interview in the Liverpool Echo newspaper was published today (Friday April 29th) and has just gone live on the icLiverpool website. The interview was conducted by Peter Grant, who recently interviewed Lou Reed for us for the same newspaper. You can read the "new" Liverpool newspaper Todd interview here -
Please note, there is a lot of media interest in Liverpool for Todd, as the latter cites the Beatles as a major influence on his music.

Critically acclaimed classical string quartet, ETHEL, are special guests of Joe Jackson and Todd Rundgren on a massive full-scale 2005 US and European Tour. The European tour starts on May 30th at the Portsmouth Guildhall (UK) and will also include concerts in Bristol, York, Gateshead, London, Leicester, Edinburgh and Liverpool. In June Ethel the tour will continue with shows in Holland, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Spain.
Ethel is a 21st-century realisation of the classical string quartet model featuring uptown and downtown performing stalwarts Ralph Farris, Dorothy Lawson, Todd Reynolds, and Mary Rowell. Their credentials read like a who's who of classical, contemporary, and popular music. From the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and the Steve Reich Ensemble to the Sheryl Crow Band and the Roger Daltrey Band, Ethel brings together a vast spectrum of performing and recording experiences. They have performed on Joe Jackson's "Night and Day II" album, and Todd Rundgren wrote a piece of music for them in 2000.
Unencumbered by convention, genre or style, the tastes, talents and experiences of these four musicians come together to create a flexible entity that is committed to exploring new possibilities in string quartet performance. Their debut album has been critically acclaimed by John L.Walters of the Guardian newspaper.
"I wish there were more rock bands that played like Ethel," says Walters. "What you get from Ethel is the sense of the performers participating in the act of making a living, breathing music that brings the format back into contemporary life and culture while remaining an acoustic string quartet."
Joe Jackson and Todd Rundgren today announced details of their forthcoming UK and European Tour. The internationally renown-recording artists and singer/songwriters will undertake a joint solo tour where they will be backed by US string quartet, Ethel.
Tickets go on sale Friday March 11 at 9am for the following 8 UK concerts: Portsmouth Guild Hall (Monday May 30), Bristol Colston Hall (Tuesday May 31), York Opera House (June 2), Leicester De Montfort Hall (Friday June 3), Carling Apollo Hammersmith, London (Sunday June 5), Newcastle The Sage (Monday June 6), Edinburgh Usher Hall (Wednesday June 8) + Liverpool Philharmonic Hall (Thursday June 9).
Todd, Joe and Ethel will also be performing concerts in Holland, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and Spain. The above listed press release web page/link will be refreshed daily with the latest tour developments.
