Over the past four decades, Rick Springfield has worn many hats as an entertainer and performer. The creator of some of the finest power-pop of the ’80s, a Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and musician who has sold 25 million albums and scored 17 U.S. Top 40 hits, including “Jessie’s Girl,” “Don’t Talk to Strangers,” “An Affair of the Heart,” “I’ve Done Everything for You,” “Love Somebody,” and “Human Touch.”
He’s an accomplished actor who starred opposite Meryl Streep in the feature film Ricki and the Flash and gave a chameleonic performance as the creepy Dr. Irving Pitlor in HBO’s prestige drama True Detective, earned great reviews for his portrayal of Lucifer on the CW hit Supernatural and most recently played the insane Pastor Charles on FX’s worldwide hit series American Horror Story.
In 2019, Springfield, released his seventeenth studio album, “Orchestrating My Life.” It has been a long and fruitful affair, and one that has gifted him with a powerful connection to his legions of devoted fans, who pack his annual fan getaway events, as well as the nearly 100 shows a year he performs both with his band and solo in an intimate “storyteller” setting that he captured on the 2015 CD/DVD and concert film Stripped Down.
GRAMMY winners Men At Work, are arguably one of the biggest bands of the ’80s selling over 30 million albums worldwide and scoring two No. 1 singles in the US (“Down Under” and “Who Can It Be Now”), and three others in the Top 10 (“Be Good Johnny,” “Overkill,” and “It’s A Mistake”). The tour also marks the first time in over 20 years that lead singer Colin Hay has put a band together as Men At Work, dedicating the setlist to the seminal band’s repertoire.
John Waite, another giant MTV-era star, has enjoyed massive success not only as a solo artist with the hits “Missing You” (No. 1) and “Change “ (Top 10) but also as the lead singer of the highly influential power pop band The Babys and the supergroup Bad English. The Babys are best known for the hit songs “Isn’t It Time” and “Every time I Think Of You,” while Bad English scored a No. 1 hit with “When I See You Smile.”
