Todd Rundgren’s Utopia have reunited for a 2018 North American tour.

Rundgren, Kasim Sulton, Willie Wilcox and Ralph Schuckett will kick off the 33-date tour at Jim Thorpe’s Penns Peak on April 18 and wrap up with a performance at the Fox PAC in Riverside, California, on June 5.

It’ll be the first time the band have toured in the US and Canada in 32 years.

Rundgren says: “Within the time constraints, we are going to attempt to cover most of the significant moments that people would complain about if we didn’t.

“We have a list of songs. It’s not the official set list just yet – but a list of songs we’re pretty confident people would like to hear.

“I think we’re going to have a good time.”

To mark the announcement, it’s also been revealed that a limited edition box set celebrating their music is to launch next month.

Titled The Road To Utopia: The Complete Recordings 1974-82, it will be released on April 20 via Friday Music

A statement on the set reads: “This limited edition collection will bring each of their seven classic albums to life, now in first-time CD digipak gatefold covers featuring the original album artwork elements, rare inner sleeve art, newly written commentary from the band, and more.”

The Road To Utopia is now available for pre-order.
