Over the past four decades, Rick Springfield has been the creator of some of the finest power-pop of the '80s, a Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and musician who has sold 25 million albums and scored 17 U.S. Top 40 hits, including "Jessie's Girl," "Don't Talk to Strangers,” "An Affair of the Heart,” "I've Done Everything for You,” "Love Somebody," and "Human Touch" and he’s coming to the Fred Amphitheater in Peachtree City on Friday, June 9.
He's an accomplished actor who starred opposite Meryl Streep in the feature film Ricki and the Flash and gave a chameleonic performance as the creepy Dr. Irving Pitlor in HBO's prestige drama True Detective, earned great reviews for his portrayal of Lucifer on the CW hit Supernatural and most recently played the insane Pastor Charles on FX's worldwide hit series American Horror Story.
He's also a talented author — both his candid 2010 memoir Late, Late at Night (which Rolling Stone named one of the 25 greatest rock memoirs of all time) and his 2014 comedic novel Magnificent Vibration earned rave reviews and spots on the New York Times Best Sellers' list. In 2013, Springfield wrote and recorded "The Man That Never Was" with Dave Grohl for the soundtrack to Sound City — the Foo Fighters' frontman's documentary about the San Fernando Valley recording studio that was Springfield's home away from home (his manager owned the building). Rolling Stone called Springfield's touching interview in the film its "breakout story." In 2014, Springfield was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, located around the corner from the first apartment he lived in when he first arrived in the U.S. from Australia in 1971.
In 2019, Springfield released his seventeenth studio album, "Orchestrating My Life," a career-defining re-visitation of a lifetime of hits from the Australian-born rocker. The album is a collection of all the hits the public loves, re-recorded with an electrifying mix of rock and accompanied by a full orchestra. It also includes a brand-new song, "Irreplaceable," a song dedicated to Rick's mother, who passed away in 2017.
Rick continues to tour to bring his powerhouse live shows to legions of loyal fans throughout the US and world.
Georgia's own singer/songwriter Sasha Hurtado opens the show. Sasha heads to the Fred fresh off her appearance on last year's Season 22 of NBC's The Voice, as a top 20 contestant. This Dallas, Georgia native grew up in a multicultural family of music lovers and started singing in Church and performing live shows at the age of 14.
