And by the way, Todd Rundgren did not talk at all to the audience. He did not smile, laugh, joke, talk about the Springs, give a little background of his album, or once say hello. He did not say one word to the audience. I've never seen a performing artist do this and be so aloof to the people who came to see him perform. Maybe he just doesn't care what the audience thinks???
And what does it mean, "He sorta sang a few oldies", as if having sorta sang a few oldies made his performance sorta worth waiting to the end for.
What an incredible waste of time and space.
Actually the music was repetitive, hard to enjoy melodicly, and boring. The only instrument was one guy on a Korg synthesizer (who was really good but) and Rundgren playing guitar for a total of maybe two minutes. I'm surprised more didn't leave like we did. I expected to hear ALL of his old hits mixed in with his latest album Global that he was of course promoting. This is what the vast majority of the people came to hear at a pretty good cost. I can guaranty the vast majority of people weren't happy with what they were hearing because almost NO ONE was moving at all, up to the hour and a half point where we had enough and left!!! You please the audience who paid to hear you. I read later that Rundgren almost never plays his hits and absolutely refuses to play any that the audience request. Just sorry I didn't read this beforehand, huh?
I have. Seizures :) now I as a man Thinks you girls need to see me for who I am and stop doing that little girl. Runaway thing and love me for the sweet mature man I am and I know you girls think I can't deliver but. Weight till you meet me I can stand up for my self . I'm not a bad boy. Don't have any. Problems I live for kindness and respect and would. Maby just maby would. Like to give some women that wants love to her but you. Have to be willing to walk away. From that School girl way. And be a adult that can love me so I can love you and respect you
Big band fans: come over to The Thirsty Parrot before the show for dinner and some fine warm up music from Springs Contemporary Big Band. We'll get you ready for this great show.
Love Todd Rundgren. A few drunk patrons made this unpleasant. Sad to see people leave early in the show since he sorta sang a few oldies with a twist towards the end of the concert. The concert was promoting Global, though most expected SOME of the originals. Overall money well spent. Good Luck on tour Todd.
One of Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe stories centers on the theft of one of these. "The High Window", published in 1942.
Saw the shows tonight and they are very entertaining. Each of the 6 plays is very different from the others. The actors did a wonderful job. Hard to pick a favorite. So much local talent within the casts. Definitely a go see!
This is a wonderful place to hear good old time folk, cowboy, bluegrass, and other Americana music in a family friendly setting. The price is right too... only $5 for adults and kids 16 and under get in free. You get to hear local western and bluegrass performers and bands as well as nationally recognized stars like Barry Ward, WMA male performer of the year. Shows are held in the Cowboy Church of Peyton which is about 3 miles north of town on Bradshaw Rd. or a mile north of the intersection of Bradshaw and Murphy Roads. There are no shows in June, July, August or December.

Saw them in Denver, so funny. Best night out in a while.
This show completely surprised us! Most of the acts were pretty good but Lonnie Dilan and his band (the wandered) KILLED IT! Honestly I had started to get a bit tired and was thinking of leaving early but then they started and I couldn't move! This guy is someone to keep an eye on! Can't wait to see them again!

I can't wait! George Ezra is opening and I'm super excited! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHrLPs3_1Fs
It would be good for Bach to get the important things done instead of just talking about it. Maybe if he just lets City staff do their jobs and not micro-dictate, his staff would have more of this done by now. Near the end of his run, he should have gotten a lot of this done already, and had the priorities figured out long ago. I guess that's what happens when your other personal goals take precedent.
This a first-rate exhitit. Great work from Daisy McConnell and GOCA.
