Wasted in Wendover

And no, not the intoxicated kind. Rick Springfield played at the Peppermill Concert Hall in Wendover, NV last night and maybe the most noticable difference in last night's show was the addition of Wasted at the beginning of the encore. It was a very, very nice surprise indeed.
Another slight difference last night from recent shows was the reappearance of Gloria. When Gloria came "knocking", he was upstairs watching tv, and this is where this rendition took a bit of a different turn from previous versions. Gloria comes upstairs and hears "this weird tv show" coming from the bathroom....."Bobbie, damn it, I thought I told you to....I said back rub" (Rick recreating the tv show)........"She comes over and she turns the tv off....and now I'll never know what happened in those 3,000 storylines......that go absolutely f#cking many times can one girl get'll never believe what they are coming up with next in the next couple of can only happen on a Soap Opera....."

Full set list - Who Killed Rock n Roll, Affair of the Heart, Alyson, I've Done Everything for You, Living in Oz, Rock of Life, Gloria, Red House, Don't Talk to Strangers, The Medley, Love Somebody, My Generation, Human Touch, Jessie's Girl, Wasted, Love is Alright Tonite.

Don't Blink!

22 days after his last and very brief appearance, Rick Springfield as Noah Drake is back. We've heard the expression "always leave them wanting more", but it's becoming ridiculous. You're barely over your excitement of seeing him on your screen and he's done for the day. It does look like the Chief of Staff storyline might be developing. Again, we understand that with Rick's touring, his appearances will be limited, but when he does show up, give him some screen time, for the love of Pete! (and I don't mean Patrick's friend Pete).

It's been really quiet lately in the world of Rick Springfield, but lots and lots of stuff is on the horizon. Apparently there is going to be another We Are the 80's tour this summer, with two more unofficial dates [so don't book your airfare yet] surfacing - 6/29 in Atlanta, GA at Chastain Amphitheater and 7/1 in Gilford, NH at the Meadowbrook Musical Arts Center.

Ostrich Festival not for the Birds

Rick Springfield played the Ostrich Festival in Chandler, AZ last night. The set list was as follows: Who Killed Rock N Roll, Will I, Living in Oz, I've Done Everything For You, Affair of the Heart, Kristina, Red House, Don't Talk to Strangers, The Medley, Love Somebody, My Generation, Human Touch, Jessie's Girl and the single encore song of Love is Alright Tonite.
A review of the show can be found on the Get Out website. This was a very nice review, but please note that Rick is not an actor turned musician, he was a musician long before he started acting.
