TODD YES! DARYL NO!

Todd Rundgren surprised with a terrific set and a voice that still has range. He played some of his biggest hits and was really engaging with the crowd. Really great set and if it was just Todd it would've been 5 stars. Daryl on the other hand has such a negative vibe. He seemed uncomfortable on stage and was constantly complaining to the roadies and sound mixer. He played a bunch of self-indulgent tunes nobody cared to hear. BIG disappointment from someone who has one of the best voices in the genre. If you see this tour, walk out after Todd's set.

DARRYL HALL / TODD RUNDGREN - DECENT PERFORMANCE - TERRIBLE SOUND

Enormous talent (and matching egos) struggled to overcome poor staging and sound at the venerated Perelman stage. First class musicianship and execution were marred by a lack of attention and respect to the venue. The overall volume - way too loud, the sound collapsed into the midrange with the drums ridiculously too loud in the mix. Darryl stated "I never do a soundcheck" - well it showed big time in a place that should have sounded great. Virtually no separation of instruments. The lighting was also dismal. The spots on the main performers were way to dim. There were bright round lights behind the band that shone into the audience making it hard to see the performers. The lighting team was trying too hard with what looked like cheap effects. A minimalist approach would have been better. Both performers played solid sets. A more Darryl's House vibe with Todd integrated would have been better, but it was a more traditional opener and headliner. Too bad. A missed opportunity.

BETTER THAN NOTHING

Worse seats in the world (week later i am still in pain). Todd showed amazing endurance for a 70 yr old. The acoustics for Daryls band which played for both Todd (first hour) and Hall (second hour +) showed their talent, but the performance was un even at best. I couldnt make out any of the guitars nor sax. Overall I was very disappointed but gave them 3 stars our of sympathy. Daryl came across as somewhat cocky. I paid over 400 for 2 tickets, 100 for food and drink and 300 for a limo ride.....crappy $1000 night

TODD SHONE BRIGHTLY, DARYL WAS DIM

Todd Rundgren proved once again why he's still an incredibly vital music maker at 73. Rightfully inducted into the Hall of Fame, his voice was clear, powerful and he was having fun, even getting into his very old material bringin it a new life. Daryl, who Todd inquired about on stage..was either sick, tired, or drunk. Either way his voice was WAY off (he does suffer from Lyme disease), and the whole show he did lacked energy with polite applause until he launched into Can't Go For That in an overly long version. THAT got the crowd engaged. But overall.. it was sad to see this icon struggling. He had feedback problems ("I don't do soundchecks" he said), guitar problems and vocal problems (he literally talked through some lyrics).. I wish him well and hope at 75 he still has some gas in the tank. McCartney does. so maybe. Still it was disappointing. Todd was worth the price of admission. A wizard, a true star.

MIXED BAG

My thoughts are similar to many already expressed. I didn't realize Todd's vocal power or his guitar skills, n)ice surprise. Both singer's were difficult to hear, understand. The sound was really off, distorted, poorly mixed. A lot of feedback throughout the second set. Really a shame, it had great moments . An acoustic song, Daryl on grand piano and guitar was painful to hear, the mix was so bad.

DARYL HALL TODD RUNDREN

Was truly looking forward to the store, took us two hours to get downtown finally get to the theater. The base was way too loud even in the restrooms everything was vibrating. Many people were purchasing ear plugs to minimize the base sound vibration. I wish so much acoustics were better. We ended up having to leave early because of the sound.

TODD LUNDGREN AND DARYL HALL AT CARNEGIE HALL

All I can say is WTF …. As a massive fan of Daryl… this was so disappointing… acoustics were awful…. Set up poor… there were empty seats and I saw people leaving Todd overindulgent … Daryl disorganised … brought my family hoping to inspire my 17 year old with an icon of songwriting…. Ended up embarrassed. What can I say ….. Daryl is messing with his legacy here …. Skip it… Or wait for the next series of Daryl's House which he said he was going to do… the production will be as it should be… this show does not travel well.
