BOB FM’s Birthday Bash featuring Rick Springfield with Loverboy & The Romantics Presented by SiriusXM’s 80’s on the 8
October 22, 2015 @ 7:30 pm
This October three iconic bands hit the road for a tripleheader fall tour including a stop at Cedar Park Center on October 22nd as part of BOB FM’s 11th Birthday Bash presented by SiriusXM’s 80s on 8. Grammy® winning singer/songwriter and best-selling author Rick Springfield, Canadian hard-rocking legends Loverboy and Detroit’s new wave outfit The Romantics are set to perform hits that include “Jessie’s Girl” “Working for the Weekend” and “What I Like About You.”
Springfield sold over 25 million records and earned a Grammy® Award for his No. 1 smash-hit Jessie’s Girl, and a whopping 17 Top-40 hits including Don’t Talk to Strangers, An Affair of the Heart, I’ve Done Everything for You, Love Somebody and Human Touch. Never one to be confined to the recording studio where the music is born, Springfield has toured for over 30 years, hand-delivering the hits to millions of fans worldwide during his legendary, high-energy live shows. Hardly content walking in his own footprints for very long, fall 2013 saw Springfield reinvent himself yet again performing for the first time as a purely solo act. Rick Springfield’s “Stripped Down” performances offer an intimate glimpse in to the amazing life he’s experienced through music, with personal stories introducing each song in the set.
Springfield’s autobiography, Late, Late at Night (Touchstone 2010) entered The New York Times best-seller list at No. 13 while also landing on the Los Angeles Times and Publishers Weekly top-sellers lists. Rolling Stone named it one of the top-25 rock memoirs of all time. In Late, Late At Night, which Springfield wrote entirely himself, Rick speaks frankly about the depression he’s battled throughout his life. He followed it with his fiction debut in 2014, MAGNIFICENT VIBRATION, receiving rave reviews.
