The Rick Springfield show last night was fantastic. The venue, Potawatomi's "Northern Lights Theater," is always an excellent location because it's small and "intimate" for any show. With that being said, Rick took it up a notch. I'll be honest, I don't know what I was expecting when I arrived... but I wasn't expecting that. From the screaming fangirls of all ages to the kick-ass opening video complete with projection screens and smoke machines, to the world debut of two songs from his as-yet-unreleased album to the part where he walked on top of tables and played Human Touch... it was pretty awesome. Curmudgeon wrote up her own brief but eloquent entry about the experience while I was driving us home last night.
A few thoughts from the show, in no particular order:
I've never seen anybody play a power chord with a dozen roses.
For being a man of the 80s he is bringing the Big. Rock. Noise.
I need the new album just for Venus In Overdrive.
What's with the rubber ducks?
I should have brought my camera.
No. No, teeth should NOT be used on a banana like that.
Dude, is he... he IS climbing over the wall between rows so he can stand on the table!
