Rick Springfield gallery updated in Nashville – 10 years in a row

Had a great time working the past two nights with Rick Springfield at the Legendary Wildhorse Saloon here in Nashville. This marks 10 years in a row that Rick has sold out back to back nights over Valentine’s Day weekend. At 67  years young, he is still kicking ass and taking names. I highly suggest checking out one of his shows if you have the chance. They are full of timeless classic hits like Human Touch, Don’t Talk To Strangers, Affair Of The Heart, I’ve Done everything For You and of course the crowd favorite Jessie’s Girl.  Aside from the great music, Rick is an all around entertainer with amazing crowd interaction including bringing kids up on stage to sing and dance, walking into the crowd on tables during Human Touch and personal banter with fans during the show. 

I have had the pleasure of shooting these Valentine’s shows with him for the past 7 years including the after show meet and greets with the fans, who are incredibly passionate and supportive, many of them having travelled from other parts of the country and having seen him numerous times. 

 Saturday night he was joined on stage by long time former drummer Jack White who resides here in Nashville for a cover of the Kinks classic You Really Got Me. Past years have seen celebrity guests join him to sing along including Tom Kiefer, The Nelson Brothers and several others.

Rick Springfiled photos 2 sold out Nashville shows

I spent the past two nights working my house photography gig at The Legendary Wildhorse Saloon here in Nashville with back to back sold out shows with GRammy Winning, Multi Platinum selling artist Rick Springfield. Rick has managed to sell out 2 nights here for the past 9 years in a row. With a slew of radio hits, movies and videos, fans travel from all across the country to come to these special shows. At 66 years young the former General Hospital star has not lost a beat. Many artists out there could learn a thing or two by watching Rick perform. His 90 minute sets are a non stop barrage of high energy songs, that includes Rick walking across tables into the crowd during his hit Human Touch, to bringing a slew of small children on stage for the classic Don’t Talk To Strangers. Upon the show ending, he immediately heads upstairs for fan meet and greets with up to 100 people, followed by running back downstairs to meet with and sign autographs for upwards of 200 more that bought cds during the show.

Saturday night’s show featured a few special guests – Matthew and Gunnar Nelson and  Tom Kiefer of Cinderella joined Rick for the crowd favorite Jessie’s Girl. The show eneded with another special guest appearance by Rick’s longtime friend and drummer Jack White for a rendition of the Jimi Hendrix classic Fire.

This marked my 5th year working with Rick for these back to back shows, it is always an honor and a pleasure to photograph and work with him. An incredible singer,songwriter, performer and amazingly nice guy. 363 days until we do it again.
