Todd Rundgren’s tour, titled “The Individualist, A True Star” has been rescheduled from 2020 to 2021 and he’ll be stopping at the Wiltern on January 16, 2021. Rundgren is one of the most prolific artists of his time, and is known for his innovations in music, technology and catchy pop songwriting.
Rundgren is multi-faceted and multi talented. He’s known for being a pioneer in electronic music and prog rock, and also in his music video productions and web streaming. When he wasn’t performing and making music with this band, Utopia, Rundgren also released albums as a solo artist and produced highly acclaimed records for acts including Badfinger, Meatloaf, Grand Funk Railroad, The New York Dolls and XTC.
His music was most successful in his earlier years, from 1970-1991, which is still an impressive 20-year peak. Songs like 1971’s “We Gotta Get You A Woman” climbed to the Top 20 songs of the year, and his popular ballad “Can We Still Be Friends” reached the Top 30 in its’ year. Around 1984, Rundgren pulled the plug on his band Utopia and focused on his producing and computer science career. He even later worked on film soundtracks including the Farrelly Brothers movie and Dumb and Dumber. In the late ’90s Rundgren toured with Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band, and returned to tour with them in 2017. After over a decade, Rundgren returned to his solo music with 2004’s Liars. He’s continued his solo career, with no signs of stopping in sight.
