(Corpus Christi, TX December 8, 2014) For all of his accomplishments as an actor, best-selling author, and documentary subject, Rick Springfield’s first love has always been music, a passion he’s harbored since first picking up the guitar at the age of 12 in his native Australia.

With 25 million records sold, 17 top-40 hits, including Don’t Talk to Strangers, An Affair of the Heart, I've Done Everything for You, Love Somebody and Human Touch, as well as a 1981 Grammy® for Best Male Rock Vocal for his No. 1 hit single “Jessie’s Girl,” Springfield shows no signs of slowing down.  “I put everything I've got into making records,” he says. “Sometimes people may think they have you pegged but I trust the music to speak for itself.” 

Never one to be confined to the recording studio where the music is born, Springfield has toured for over 30 years, hand-delivering the hits to millions of fans worldwide via his dynamic live shows.  His concerts are legendary with their rock heavy, high energy full band sets. However, in fall 2013 Springfield felt it was time to expand his live performance options.  Hence the solo “Stripped Down” tour was created to bring an intimate yet still lively performance to fans. The singer incorporates personal stories about his music and life into the show and even adds a question and answer segment as a way to truly connect with his audiences. The “Stripped Down” tour gives Springfield a chance to perform some of his favorite songs that he has written over the years that never quit fit in his full band sets.

Excited fans and critics have made “Stripped Down” one of the most talked about tours of 2014, receiving rave reviews and sold out seats across the country. “Setting up shop at the intimate and stylish City Winery was the right call for this rare solo set and the fans came in droves, selling out both shows practically from the get go…The night as a whole achieved its purpose of revealing several unseen sides of Springfield beyond just the most obvious oldies.” says the Illinois Entertainer.

In October 2012 Springfield released, Songs for the End of the World his 17th studio record, and collaboration with songwriter Matt Bissonette. Songs for the End of the World addresses the need to be consoled and cherished in an age of anxiety about the future of the planet.

Springfield’s current musical career renaissance can be traced back to the albums Shock/Denial/Anger/Acceptance (2004) and Venus in Overdrive (Ume, 2008), which entered the Billboard sales charts at No. 28, his highest debut in 20 years.  In 2005, Sony Legacy’s released the retrospective double CD Written in Rock: The Rick Springfield Anthology.

Tickets go on sale Friday, December 12, 2014 at 10:00am at the American Bank Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets including select H-E-B's, select Walmart's, Ticketmaster.com or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000. Additional fees may apply.
