RundgrenRadio.com presents Todd Rundgren in concert in Memphis, TN this April as part of the "Todd Rundgren's Johnson" tour. The show will be held at the New Daisy Theatre at 330 Beale Street on April 21st. More information is available at www.newdaisy.com.

Todd's new album "Todd Rundgren's Johnson" features his interpretations of 12 songs originally written and recorded by Delta blues guitar legend Robert Johnson. In the words of biographer Stephen C. LaVere, “Robert Johnson is the most influential bluesman of all time and the person most responsible for the shape popular music has taken in the last five decades.” Such classics as “Cross Road Blues,” “Love In Vain” and “Sweet Home Chicago” are the bedrock upon which modern blues and rock and roll were built.

Drawing heavily from his forthcoming album the show will consist of a combination of Johnson classics and guitar hero Todd staples. In addition to Rundgren, the band lineup for this tour includes Kasim Sulton (a member of Todd's band Utopia), Jesse Gress (of the Tony Levin Band), and Prairie Prince (a founding member of art-rock band The Tubes).

Opening act Alec Roeser begins at 7pm with an estimated 8pm start for Todd Rundgren.
