- The massive talents of Todd Rundgren: jaw-dropping guitarist, virtuoso keyboardist, ahead-of-the-curve tech junkie, sought-after record producer, and idiosyncratic genre jumper
- His legacy: pop hits such as “Hello It’s Me” and “I Saw the Light” that live in classic-rock-radio perpetuity; the workforce-shunning anthem “Bang the Drum All Day”
- His nickname (if he were a competitive eater): Hungry Todd Rungrey
- Albums you own that have his thumbprints all over them: Meat Loaf’s Bat Out of Hell, The Band’s Stage Fright, XTC’s Skylarking
- The show: following his electronica-tinged, theatrically inclined Global tour, Todd returns to his bread and butter—a five-piece rock band playing career-spanning hits.
- The way of The Tubes: Imagine a power-pop band like The Cars or Cheap Trick—but led by Andy Kaufman and Bertolt Brecht—and you’ll get a sense of The Tubes theatrical, prankish, and absurdist twist on rock-‘n-roll conventions.
- The leader of The Tubes: the irrepressible Fee Waybill, who in the past adopted alter egos for the band’s surreal stage shows, which were more SNL than rock concert
- Some of Waybill’s characters: country singer Hugh Heifer, drug-addled Brit pop star Quay Lewd, and punker Johnny Bugger (he actually broke his leg on stage doing that bit)
- How they got the media’s attention: Waybill’s onstage antics got them banned in England, which has strict laws against being entertaining.
- How they got your attention: most likely with their sole Top 10 hit, 1983’s “She’s a Beauty,” which stayed in MTV rotation thanks to a provocative video involving a peep show
- The show: Although The Tubes have settled into a straightforward pop band over the decades, fans can still expect Waybill to go back to his old ways in a set that encompasses the group’s entire career, from “White Kids on Dope” to “Talk to You Later.”
