As a Todd Rundgren fan from way way back, I was ecstatic to find this absolutely amazing video of the full concert he performed in 2012 with Amsterdam’s Metropole Orchestra. He does all of his greatest songs, and is in exceptionally good voice throughout, and the audio quality is outstanding. A real treat, and worth watching all the way through.
The following presentation is a crowd sourced video production.
More info, interview and show notes AND the 2011 concert here: keezer.nl
Footage collected from consumer videocameras and HD mobile phones in the audience -12 in total- brought together in a real time full length concert registration.
The performance of the artists, combined with superb sound quality from the radio broadcast, makes the viewer forget that camera work and picture quality are not always up to modern broadcast standards.
However this sense of reality adds an extra dimension to the concert experience, making it most enjoyable to watch this unique concert, seen entirely through the eyes of Todd Rundgren fans.
