This DVD goes along with another DVD called "TODD" (the full performance of the 1974 classic album).
It was the same show where Todd Rundgren performed two full albums, and also the bonus feature which is an in-depth interview is presented in two parts (which you'll find in both DVDs as well). So, to get the full concert and the full interview you must purchase both DVDs.

The interview is very good and informative, and includes lots of great and revealing moments, even though Todd comes across as a very self-involved person who seems to have a problem with anybody who didn't share his work ethic.
The story of the album Bat Out Of Hell by Meat Loaf is a highlight of the interview and very funny as well.

The concert footage is the part I don't enjoy at all. Musically it's good, although quite clinical and calculated for moments, but visually it seems more like a piece of theater than a concert. Todd manages to have a clean stage, no cables around or guitar amps or anything whatsoever, and then the most annoying thing of them all, a wireless-hands-free microphone. It's so ridiculous to see somebody singing on stage and pacing side to side moving his hands constantly, not to mention that it looks like lip sync (a la J.Lo and all of those performers that uses those mics). Very disappointing for what could've been an excellent show.

But again, if you don't mind what I described then go for it.

Fantastic concert! Like the Todd DVD the album actually sounds better live. The school choir used for backing vocals are excellent and really do shine through on the highlight of the show which is "Shine". It is so good that it makes one wonder why he did not do this live in the past whenever he had background singers. His collection of musicians including Kasim and Jesse, Prairie Prince, Greg Hawkes from the Cars on keyboards and Bobby Strickland playing sax, keyboards and pretty well anything that can replicate the original album sounds to perfection, are all in top forum. Todd himself is at the top of his game here and the peaceful sounds of the performance combined with the rocking moments when things pick up combine to make one great show!

The interview portion is by far the most indepth interview I have ever seen with Todd and I am very impressed how forthcoming he was with his replies. I must say that this itself was worth owning this gem of a DVD.

A must have for any Todd fan!!

HASH(0xa0d34dc8) out of 5 stars Stunningly original. June 20 2012
By Kru - Published on
Format: DVD
I had the great privilege of seeing the "Todd / Healing" tour last year in Hartford, CT. After seeing TR in concert at least a dozen times prior (going back nearly 30 years), I can safely say that this was the finest set I've ever seen him deliver. No small thanks to the material; 1974's "Todd" double LP was, in my mind, the zenith of Todd's explosive creativity, though the (musically and thematically) new-age concepts found in 1981's "Healing" are no less innovative or compelling. The two distinct periods contrast each other, within the one concert, with seriously satisfying results.

Todd made the decision to split off the two halves of the show into 2 separate DVDs, but each one is well worth the coin. Most of this material is not available on any other video format, and much of it has never seen live performance, prior to this tour. Most of the material from the "Todd" record couldn't be replicated on stage, in its time, before the advent of easy, on-stage sample-triggering that we see today. The "Todd" DVD half was released a few months back.

So, on to this DVD. What can I say? The quality of this recording is beautiful. A full complement of multiple, HD camera angles capture every aspect of the performance. The sound is fantastic, although Todd's vocal could have been a little higher in the mix. At times, when the choir is at full-tilt, they drown out TR's voice. A shame, too, because Todd's voice is in RARE form on this one. "Healing" is a real showcase album for Todd's sensitive vocal side, and he didn't miss a thing with this performance. Truly impressive. The high-school choir that backs Todd up on this show do an admirable job. Not the best, by any stretch, but the juxtaposition of their youth with the elder statesman's show of conviction sets the tone for many of the album's themes of birth / death / rebirth; the cyclic nature of the universe and its karmic energy. It was really uplifting to see some of these kids' faces, during quiet passages of profound lyrical depth that the MAN delivers. It seemed to mean something to them. Musically, the band does not disappoint, either. Todd picks his people well, and there isn't a guy on stage that isn't a seasoned multi-instrumentalist. Any one of Todd's stable can pick up a bass, guitar or keyboard and just go. Reliable Kas, Tubes drummer Prairie Prince and The Cars keyboardist Greg Hawkes; guitarist Jesse Gress and reed-man Bobby Strickland round out the tight, ambient performance.

I'd love it if Todd would re-mix the album, sans vocals. Granted, the lyrical / vocal component of the piece is crucial, but seeing it live (both on stage, and on this DVD) obliges me to focus on the complexities of the composition and arrangement that are 50% of what make "Healing" such a masterpiece.

Hard to believe one man could have done it alone. But easy to believe, if that one man is TODD.

Five Stars.

HASH(0xa0d34e1c) out of 5 stars Utterly Awesome - A Truly Spiritual Todd Experience July 22 2012
By J. M. Greer - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This had a lot to live up to for me. Healing is my favourite Todd album of all. It Is in my opinion his most personal and most philosophical and congruent work. It oozes good karma and a made a real spiritual connection for me from the first time I heard it. My hopes were more than realised. This is a work of sheer brilliance. Todd gives one of his most powerful and moving performances of all time. His vocals are beautiful and reach a searing intensity. The performance captures the majesty and spiritual essence of this unique album. The other vocalists and musicians all aquit themselves brilliantly and Bobby Strickland particularly stands out with his saxophone solo and flute playing. Todd s vocals are superb and they are beautifully complimented by the fine choir. Their beautiful voices, youthful good looks and the passion they display for the music under the masterful direction of Dirk Hillyer is sublimely moving and it adds an extra dimension to the music. The audience are also totally engaged with the performance and that adds to the feeling that you are watching something g truly special. From a technical viewpoint too, the quality is excellent with a very clear picture and lots of good camera angles.
If you love Todds music and especially if you have a love and a spiritual affinity with this record then you will find that this DvD adds new dimensions to your relationship with this trully wonderful record.
Highly recommended - and don't miss the second half of Emmy winner Roy Firestones insightful, no punches pulled interview with Todd.

HASH(0xa0d38114) out of 5 stars We All Need Healing.... Nov. 4 2012
By Trout Voice - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I will admit that although I have been a Huge Todd Rundgren Fan for about 37 years now, "Healing" had never struck me as being one of his better works. I tend to gravitate more towards Todd's Heavy Guitar work.
After purchasing "Todd" DVD and being totally blown away, I was very curious about this "Healing" basically being the 2nd set.
I very much enjoyed it the first time I watched it. Although Todd only straps the Guitar on twice, he definitely makes it scream during the frenzied ending of "Shine". This DVD and concert is not about Todd's Guitar playing or mastery, you got that with the first set!
This is Todd's Heart being worn on his sleeve for all to see, hear and feel!
I watched it last night for the second time (as a follow up to hearing Neil Young & Crazy Horses- "Psychedelic Pill" for the first time)and it hit me hard.
The Music and the Spirit of this DVD is encompassing. You are moved about the stage by the cameramen to the places where things are happening...Whether it is Musical, or Vocal or the amazing rapport with the audience YOU are there if you allow yourself to be!
Unexpectedly during the final song, "Sons of 1984" I burst into tears. This doesn't happen with me. I haven't cried in a long while! It felt good. The Tears were Healing Tears of Joy. The emotions came out through the Band into my Soul and created sheer Magic.
God Bless You Always Mr. Todd. You are a Healer and made me Realize that I am too!

This is the best music DVD I have seen in years. You would be crazy not to buy it. If you like rock, it's good, if you like harmony, its good, it you like spiritual, its good. Take my advice, this one will be a valued part of your collection.

By Tyrone Rex - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
If you follow Todd Rundgren's career, you know he released Healing in the seventies. Todd, over the last few years ,has been playing some of his classic lps in their entirety live. This Is a recording of one of those performances. All the elements of the record are there. You now get the joy of watching the concert time and again.if you buy it. Also included is part two of a lengthy interview Todd did to a small group of people. Part one of this interview is on the TODD concert DVD which was released by the same DVD company. If you crave facts about Todd's career and life, this interview will provide answers. So you get a recording of a live performance, plus 1/2 of a 3 hour interview for the price of purchase.
