Rick Springfield, Patty Smyth & Scandal and Greg Kihn
September 7, 2019 @ 7:30 pm$23.50 – $73.50
Over the past four decades, Rick Springfield has worn many hats as an entertainer and performer. 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.”
Patty Smyth, both with her hit band Scandal and as a solo artist, has always been, at heart, a rock and roll chick, and that’s no truer today for the mother of six, now back on the road and raring to play for fans new and old. Patty was 15 when she played her first gig at New York’s Folk City and spent the next several years honing her craft by performing short musical sets at Catch A Rising Star in between then-unknown comedians like Jerry Seinfeld, Paul Reiser, Larry David and Chris Rock. The weekends-only gig paid only cab fare and to make ends meet, Patty waitressed at a steak house. It was there that one day she answered a ringing payphone and met Zack Smith, who would later ask her to front a band with him called Scandal. The rest is history. The initial lineup included Smith and Smyth, guitarist Keith Mack, keyboardist Benjy King, the late Ivan Elias on bass and the late Frankie LaRocka on drums (Thommy Price would take over the drums after the first LP). The 80s rock band is best known for hits like “The Warrior”, “Goodbye To You”, and “Love’s Got a Line on You”.
As a pioneer with the legendary Beserkley Records, Greg Kihn helped write the book on revolutionary west coast rock and roll. He’s toured the world, had hit records, and has won several awards for his hit songs “Jeopardy”, “Break Up Song” and “Lucky”. Greg recently obtained the rights to all his old recordings and has re-released his entire catalogue. In support of these releases and his NEW album ReKihndled, the iconic San Francisco Bay area rocker, radio personality and author has been going out with the Greg Kihn Band across the country.
