Rick Springfield flashes back to the '80s with latest tour coming to Fort Worth
Musician Rick Springfield will harken back to his heyday with his “I Want My 80’s Tour” this summer, which includes a stop at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth on Tuesday, August 22.
The tour will kick off in Youngstown, Ohio on August 4, traveling to 26 cities over the course of two months. Fort Worth is one of only two Texas stops, with Springfield also playing in Lubbock on August 23.
Special guests The Hooters, Tommy Tutone, and Paul Young will play on most dates.
Springfield and his special guests are responsible for some of the '80s biggest hits, including “Jessie’s Girl,” “Don’t Talk To Strangers,” “And We Danced,” “Everytime You Go Away,” and “Jenny/867-5309,” all of which and more will be played on this special tour.
Springfield is a multi-hyphenate, winning fans not only for his music but also his work as an actor, most notably on as Dr. Noah Drake on the soap opera General Hospital. He's also a New York Times bestselling author, releasing his memoir, Late, Late at Night, in 2010, and a novel, Magnificent Vibration, in 2014.
Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, May 5 at rickspringfield.com.
