Rick Springfield is hitting the road with Men At Work — led by Colin Hay, and John Waite for an 18-city summer tour. The trek will belatedly commemorate the 40th anniversaries of both Springfield's Working Class Dog album as well as Men At Work's Business As Usual.
The tour kicks off on August 5th in Saint Augustine, Florida at The Saint Augustine Amphitheatre and runs through September 3rd for a free concert in Las Vegas at the Fremont Street Experience.
Rick Springfield told us that it's the love, interest, and support from both his female and male fans that keep him honest and progressing musically and emotionally: “I write what I like and that's why the music always comes from a male perspective because I am, y'know? But some of the image stuff. . . I mean I always resisted all the teen stuff, but they still printed stuff anyway back in the '80s and I had to deal with it. But I always played and wrote what I wanted to — that I thought was good stuff, which is why I still have male fans. And the male fan base is actually growing, because I've always written, I think, with a degree of integrity and not a sell-out vibe at all.”
