Rick Springfield at The Northern Lights Theater

ent-rick-springfield.jpgThe Milwaukee favorite returns this week May 18–21 to perform in The Northern Lights Theater for his seventh year in a row.

Nearly 30 years ago, Springfield  launched to the top of the Billboard charts with the smash hit, "Jessie's Girl." Fans everywhere couldn't stop singing the catchy tune, hoping and dreaming that they could be Jessie's Girl. Fast forward a few decades and thing's haven't changed much. Springfield—and the song—still has a cult-like following. He's still performing, he's still selling records and, of course, he still makes the ladies go crazy!

He's taking the stage for four nights in a row. But, don't expect the same performance each evening. For the second time in The Northern Lights Theater, Rick will be switching things up for each night's show.

On May 18, you'll get to watch a high-energy electric set, the next day it'll be all requests—half of the show being acoustic and the remaining half being electric. On May 20, he'll perform his entire Venus in Overdrive album, and on the last night it's going to be a totally different full electric set.

Get tickets for the one that sounds best to you—or, heck, get tickets for all four nights!

Tickets are on sale now for $65 or $50.

YESSS!!!! My cousin and I make this an annual event. This year we are looking forward to the book siging Friday afternoon, then the show Friday night. We will continue our Ricktastic weekend by attending the charity ball game on Saturday and following that up with the concert Saturday night. Can you think of a better way to spend the weekend? Rick ROCKS and Rick Chicks RULE! :-)

I can't wait until Saturday!!! This will be my first time seeing Rick in Milwaukee. The dates are usually around my son's birthday so I'm very happy that they were changed this year. It's going to be an amazing time. I'm looking forward to meeting new friends, watching Rick play softball and, of course, seeing Rick perform!!

Thank you, Thyra, for the comment! The softball game will be free to anyone who would like to attend. Rick has asked for those attending to make donation to the Wisconsin Humane Society who will be on site at the game. For more information, please visit http://rickspringfield.com/.

Sadly I can't make it this year, but my friends are there. Sure wish you folks would live stream your ANNUAL Rick event on USTREAM or some other similar accessible website. I think there are lots of fans who would love to be there even if only online to join in the fun. If we were anywhere nearby, you KNOW we'd be there! Could even LIVE STREAM the softball game to help raise money for the Animals! =)

Sorry to hear you can't make it, Robin. Since the softball game is being run by Rick and his crew, we will pass along this suggestion to them. We will also keep it in mind for next year!

I think I'm the only guy that goes to the Milwaukee concerts alone every year. Rick always puts on a great show. Last year I got interviewed for his fan video and they did actually use a clip for the website. I've seen him play over 75 times and he's always entertained me. Plus the crowd is 90% women, what's not to like?

Can only make 1 show this year and Wednesday was it. Thanks Rick and crew for such a great show!!

Duke - It's a feature documentary called "AN AFFAIR OF THE HEART." It's way more than a "fan video". The team behind the film are consummate professionals. I've been following them for a year now. Gotta love independent filmmakers for their passion and drive. They are starting with a few Film Festival screenings this Fall. Lucky you for making it into the trailer. Just so everyone knows, you can find out more at: www.facebook.com/yellowrickroad and www.rickspringfielddoc.com. I'm a VIP Virtual Crew member and have loved watching it all come to life.

Thank you, thank you, thank for the live webcast! I'm stuck in St. Louis recovering from knee surgery and couldn't be there in person. Tonight's show was the one I was most bummed about missing, so I'm so excited I got to see it afterall. Loved hearing 3 Warning Shots & God Blinked - Awesome!

Thanks again. Loved it!

I went to Rick's show Wednesday May 18th. I had waited 26 years to see him in concert. It was sooo worth the wait. Rick sounded, looked, & performed top notch! What made this concert priceless, was when Rick came out into the audience and came over to my section, (rowG3) and held my hand!! My "dream" came true. I would have loved to come to all 4 shows sadly these days I was not able to afford it. The next time I would love to be able to "meet and greet" Rick.
