Todd Rundgren And Todd-A-Roo Coming To Australia

by Karen Freedman on July 4, 2018

in News

Great news for fans of the uber-talented Todd Rundgren.
In 2008, for a week on the glorious isle of Kauai, in Hawaii, about 300 fans from all over the world joined the Rundgrens at their incredible home to celebrate his 60th birthday. This became known as ToddStock; a week of camping, drinking, singing and celebrating.

This year, to celebrate Todd Rundgren’s 70th birthday, Todd and his wife Michele, are holding four fan events around the world:

ToddStock East, Big Island, Virginia, USA, which was held between 17-23 June
ToddScot, Kelburn Castle, Scotland, UK, 6-10 July
ToddStock West, Camp Navarro, (northern) California, USA, 11-16 October
and, for us lucky Aussies,
Todd-A-Roo, Sydney, Australia, 22-24 October

If you’re a die-hard, feel welcome to join like-minded folk at Todd-A-Roo, Australia’s first ToddStock-style event, for three magical days in Sydney.

Here is a rundown of events, subject to change:
