UK fans' first chance to see 'A Wizard, A True Star' coming up

Legendary guitarist and producer Todd Rundgren is set to perform his classic album ‘A Wizard, A True Star’ in its entirety for the first time.

The rock veteran will perform the 1973 album on February 6 next year at the London HMV Hammersmith Apollo.

A favourite of artists including Hot Chip, who sampled his voice on their 2008 track ‘Shake A Fist’, the experimental album was, on its release, the longest-running album ever released on vinyl.

As well as his solo work, Rundgren is best known for producing artists including XTC, Patti Smith and Meat Loaf. Most recently he helmed the New York Dolls‘ latest effort ‘Cause I Sez So’.
