Todd Rundgren — Global

When: Tue., Aug. 11, 8 p.m. 2015

Singer-guitarist Todd Rundgren has spent the past couple of years playing a series of tour dates billed as An Unpredictable Evening with Todd Rundgren, and it’s quite appropriate, because “unpredictable” is a perfect summary of his career in a nutshell. It’s all part of the “choose your own adventure” feeling that comes with being a Rundgren fan. More than four decades into his career, the veteran artist and producer continues to be driven to explore the new challenges and ideas whenever the inspiration might strike. He’s keenly aware that his musical experiments can test the limits and patience of his fans and yet if there’s a line, it doesn’t seem like he’s afraid of driving over it. The past few years have found Rundgren in an interesting place, spending time taking stock and learning how his work has influenced new generations of artists, an experience which spawned the album State in 2013. He described the album at that time as “one that I would logically make, using a methodology that I had to a certain degree popularized.” It put the veteran artist into a creative headspace that bled into the recording process for his latest album Global, which came out earlier this year.
