Hello, it's Todd Rundgren

Share on Nextdoor

Pop genius Todd Rundgren — one of the few remaining greats still shut out from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — comes to town with no new album to promote. That should bode well for longtime enthusiasts eager to hear timeless hits like 1971's "We Gotta Get You a Woman," 1972's "I Saw the Light" and his '73 career-best "Hello It's Me." Maybe the singer-songwriter and one-man-band (in the studio, at least) will even sate pedestrian fans with a performance of his novelty number "Bang the Drum All Day," which reached No. 29 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart in '83. Die-hards will undoubtedly be hoping for a couple of deep tracks from his back-to-back masterpiece albums, 1972's Something/Anything? and 1973's A Wizard, A True Star — perhaps a forgotten classic from the former, like "Couldn't I Just Tell You?"

Todd Rundgren, 7:30 p.m. Sat., April 12, Tampa Theatre, Tampa, $33.50, $41.
