The ever-versatile Todd Rundgren started his Egg set as a rocker, working the stage from side to side and dramatically waving his arms to conduct his four-piece backing band during the opening combo of “Real Man” and “Love of the Common Man.” He looked like a rocker, too, in dark shades, tight black pants, Beatle boots and two-tone colored hair that matched his black blazer with white piping.
But rock and roll was just the start of the two-hour performance, which touched upon blues and then got heavy into soul before coming full-bore back to rock and pop before the night was done. No matter the style – and despite the empty seats in the wings of the Hart Theatre – the show was a non-stop delight.
