Todd Rundgren is headlining the new Beatles' tribute tour, dubbed “It Was Fifty Years Ago Today: A Tribute To The Beatles.” The trek will also feature Moody Blues and Wings co-founder Denny Laine, Badfinger‘s Joey Molland, Christopher Cross, former Chicago bassist Jason Scheff, and Rascal Flatts' Jay DeMarcus. The ensemble will be tackling material from the “Fab Four's” 1965 Rubber Soul and 1966 Revolver albums.
As of now, the tour kicks off on March 1st at Montclair, New Jersey's Wellmont Theater and runs through March 27th when it hits Kansas City, Missouri's Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.
Todd Rundgren, who first toured as part of Ringo Starr's All Starr Band in 1992, made no bones to us about where his allegiance lies as a Beatles fan: “Well, my favorite Beatle is Ringo, now that I've worked with him. He's just the easiest to get along with (laughs). I haven't been much of a Paul McCartney soloist fan, and John Lennon hasn't done any recordings in a real long time.”
