Todd Rundgren’s Utopia reunite
Todd Rundgren’s Utopia confirm they’ve reformed for a North American tour - and will release The Road To Utopia box set in April
Todd Rundgren’s Utopia have reunited for a 2018 North American tour.
Rundgren, Kasim Sulton, Willie Wilcox and Ralph Schuckett will kick off the 33-date tour at Jim Thorpe’s Penns Peak on April 18 and wrap up with a performance at the Fox PAC in Riverside, California, on June 5.
It’ll be the first time the band have toured in the US and Canada in 32 years.
Rundgren says: “Within the time constraints, we are going to attempt to cover most of the significant moments that people would complain about if we didn’t.
“We have a list of songs. It’s not the official set list just yet – but a list of songs we’re pretty confident people would like to hear.
“I think we’re going to have a good time.”
To mark the announcement, it’s also been revealed that a limited edition box set celebrating their music is to launch next month.
Titled The Road To Utopia: The Complete Recordings 1974-82, it will be released on April 20 via Friday Music
A statement on the set reads: “This limited edition collection will bring each of their seven classic albums to life, now in first-time CD digipak gatefold covers featuring the original album artwork elements, rare inner sleeve art, newly written commentary from the band, and more.”
