Music can soothe one’s fiery temper, propel a rousing dance, or distract a roommate long enough so you can sell his television at a pawnshop. Experience the stunning power of sound with today's Groupon: for $23, you get one ticket for a rear-orchestra seat to see Rick Springfield at the Akron Civic Theatre on September 4 at 6:30 pm. (a $47 value). Find the seating chart here.
Grammy Award–winning singer-songwriter Rick Springfield rocks audiences with an arsenal of 17 Top 40 hits, including 1980s classics such as "Jessie's Girl," "Love Somebody," and "I Get Excited." Springfield's power chords and lovelorn lyrics electrify audiences as he strums classics as well as tunes off his latest album, Venus in Overdrive. Opening sets 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.
Rear-orchestra seats provide audiences with a floor-level view of the on-stage action and a mind's-eye view of the off-stage drama documented in Rick Springfield’s 1998 episode of VH1’s Behind The Music. The intimate indoor venue amplifies acoustics, and has an elaborate arching proscenium dating from the theater's 1929 opening. Though not included in this Groupon, parking is available in several nearby lots.
