Check Out a Once-in-a-Lifetime Acoustic Show from Rick Springfield and Richard Marx

Are you ready for a night to remember? 1980s rock icons Rick Springfield and Richard Marx will each perform full acoustic sets one night only at the F.M. Kirby Center this Sunday, December 15 at 7:00 p.m.

Over the past four decades, Rick Springfield has worn many hats. He’s been the creator of some of the finest power-pop of the ’80s. He’s a Grammy-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.”

He’s an accomplished actor who has starred opposite Meryl Streep in the feature film “Ricki and the Flash” and as a creepy Dr. Pitlor in HBO’s prestige drama “True Detective.” He’s earned great reviews for his portrayal of Lucifer on the CW hit “Supernatural” and most recently played Pastor Charles on “American Horror Story.” In 2014, Springfield was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Springfield’s latest album “Orchestrating My Life" was released in April 2019.

As a performer, songwriter, and producer, Richard Marx's nearly three-decade-long career has had innumerable highlights. The Chicago native has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, starting with his self-titled debut which went to #8 and spawned four Top 5 singles, including the chart-topping "Hold on to the Nights," with "Don't Mean Nothing" earning him a Grammy nomination for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance.

The follow-up, 1989's “Repeat Offender,” was even more successful, hitting #1 and going quadruple-platinum with two #1 singles in "Satisfied" and "Right Here Waiting." Marx achieved a seven-year string of triumphs that rivaled any in pop-rock music history. To this day, he is the only male artist in history to have his first seven singles reach the Top 5 on the Billboard charts.
