Todd Rundgren‘s Clearly Human Tour is a first-of-its-kind virtual tour with geotargeting for each of the cities. There are 25 dates and the virtual shows will happen in Chicago and be broadcast — live.
“They are going to have the backdrop of the cities they are performing in that night,” the 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominee explained in a recent Zoom conference. The backstage food for the band and crew will also be specific to that city, making this even more of a unique event but this isn’t the first time Rundgren has had a tech-savvy idea. According to a release, he designed Apple’s first tablet in 1979. In 1978, he launched the first live, interactive TV concert. He was also the first to shoot a full-length concert with multiple VR 360-degree cameras in 2016. He likes to be on the forefront of tech and he’s doing it again with the Clearly Human Tour.
This will also be the first time that Rundgren will perform the album of the same name on tour — making it extra special. “I wanted to give the fans a reason to come to the show and get something different from what they’ve seen from us before,” he says.
The Clearly Human Tour kicks off Feb. 14 and runs through March 22. Fans can buy single city tickets, a five-show pass or an all-access 25 show pass. Merchandise and virtual meet and greet tickets will also available. All of the tour dates, tickets and more information is available here.
