Grammy Award–winning singer-songwriter Rick Springfield rocks audiences with an arsenal of 17 top-40 hits, including 1980s classics such as "Jesse's Girl," "Love Somebody," and "I Get Excited." Stage-top, Springfield's power chords and lovelorn lyrics electrify audiences as he strums classics as well as tunes off his latest album, Venus in Overdrive, which soared to 28th place on Billboard charts. Opening acts from new-wavers The Motels and Kasim Sulton warm up the audience by jamming to ballads and launching electric blankets into the crowd via air cannon.
Both types of balcony seats perch audiences above the main floor, with rear-balcony seats tucked in back for easy spying on phony foreign dignitaries. The intimate indoor venue amplifies acoustics, with an elaborate proscenium dating from the theater's 1929 opening arching over the stage. Though not included in this Groupon, parking is available in several nearby lots.
