MEMPHIS, Tenn. – GRAMMY winning singer, songwriter, and musician Rick Springfield returns to Memphis to perform Jan. 19, 2019 on the Graceland Soundstage at Elvis Presley’s Memphis. This is a high energy, interactive full band show. Tickets are now on sale, ranging from $40-$125.
Over the past 40 years, Rick Springfield has worn many hats as an entertainer and performer. He's the creator of some of the finest power-pop of the ’80s, 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.”
His latest album, “The Snake King,” finds Springfield travelling down a dusty dirt road to explore the blues side of his rock ‘n roll and marks a definite departure from the power pop he has been known for.
Springfield is an accomplished actor who has starred opposite Meryl Streep in the feature film Ricki and the Flash, gave a chameleonic performance as the creepy Dr. Pitlor in HBO’s True Detective, earned great reviews for his portrayal of Lucifer this season 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, located around the corner from the first apartment he lived in when he first arrived in the U.S. from Australia in 1971.
Graceland Soundstage is the centerpiece of Elvis Presley’s Memphis, a 200,000-square-foot entertainment complex featuring a full city block of museums and shops dedicated to the legend of Elvis Presley. Located 10 minutes from downtown Memphis, this exciting new live music venue features state-of-the-art sound and lighting, two giant 20’ x ’12 screens for easy viewing and full premium bars and concessions. The complex itself offers more than 10 museum exhibits, parking and two full-service restaurants for concert-goers to enjoy before the show. The Guest House at Graceland, a AAA Four Diamond rated resort, is steps away for guests who are looking for overnight accommodations.
