1st concert in 1974 - Amazing; 2nd was 1979 in a small bar - Unbelievable; 3rd was "A Capella" in 1985 - Genius; 4th was 1995 - Aging well; 5th was last night at Hoyt Sherman - A Wizard, A True Star. The only thing this 70 year old couldn't do last night was hit his high notes from the 70s and 80s … so he didn't try … instead he nailed it with his voice of today … covered some other artists songs they could only dream of sounding that good. See him if you can
KD from Madison, Wisconsin
Unpredictable indeed! The one thing that was predictable though is just how amazing a musician and showman Todd Rundgren is. Very impressive show with Todd and his band in excellent vocal and instrumental form. The set-list had a very good mix of classic Todd songs along with some surprising and quirky, but well arranged and executed songs that came from left field. Some of the unpredictable tunes included "Don't Bogart That Joint" (Little Feat), "500 Miles" (The Proclaimers), "I Don't Want To Grow Up" (Mary Martin from Peter Pan?"), and "Mar-a-lago Brillo" (aka Camarillo Brillo by Frank Zappa). For those fans of Todd that might have been not as familiar with most of the music on his last few tours, the collection of his own songs he performed last night should have most surely satisfied. "I Don't Want To Tie You Down", "A Dream Goes on Forever', "Can We Still Be Friend?", and "I Saw The Light" were among those performed to perfection. All in all an awesome night of fun!

TODD AND UTOPIA AT THE MOORE IN SEATTLE
Wow! Been a fan of Todd and Utopia since the 70's and I was not disappointed. Amazing to me that after so many years apart the core Utopia group still sounds terrific. Great job by Gil on keyboards, he killed it! Kaz, Willie and Todd were on point all evening and provided the crowd with 2 1/2 hours of purely enjoyable rock, covering the entire Utopia catalog. Great video stage graphics to enhance the mood of the kick ass progressive rock in the first half of the show and the pop numbers played during the 2nd half. Would have liked to hear a few more Todd signature numbers, but after all, this is a Utopia show, so that is to be expected. Hoping the success of this tour leads to others, and if it does, don't miss it.

What a great night! We sat on the main floor middle 8 rows in and it was amazing. No sound problems there. Todd is still quite the showman at the age of almost 70. Vocals from the band were impressive, costumes amazing, music phenomenal! Love Utopia😍

TODD @ WILTERN IS BETTER THAN EVER!
Utipia at the Wktern blew me away. The giy is 70 and was shreeding guitar like a blizzard. His boice seems stronger thanever. And his stage energy was fabulius. Hthe first set was his old vintage Utipia jam rock. A lot of notes and they four of them nailed it. The second set they played the hits. Todd truly is a wizard a true star

This show was so much better than I had anticipated, having seen him in San Francisco last year playing some electronic music. This show had Kasim, Wilcox, and an excellent keyboard player along with Todd in fine vocal and guitar form. The sound was really really good – and I was in the first row which sometimes gets wonky sound- Truly an excellent, well paced, lovely show. Loved it
