Rick Springfield-MAYO PAC, Morristown, NJ
If you have never seen Rick Springfield perform live, make sure you make a point to see him. Whether he performs with his band of acoustic, you will leave wanting more. You will laugh, cheer, sing along and walk away saying it was one of the best concerts you have ever experienced.
His show at the MAYO PAC was just Rick alone with his guitars and a sold out audience. Most people know him from his hits such as “Jesse’s Girl,” “Don’t Talk to Strangers” and “Affair of the Heart” but he is much more. Two songs will make everyone who has lost a parent listen intently and shed a tear-“My Father’s Chair” is about his late father, who died in 1981 and the rocking chair in his house that he always sat in. He went directly into “4 Billion Heartbeats,” a tribute to his Mother who passed away last year at age 96 at her heart beat 4 Billion times.. There wasn’t a dry eye in the audience, including his.
At almost age 69, Rick Springfield still has his boyish good looks and charm and gives 100%.
