Fans of former '80s heartthrob Rick Springfield filled the Silver Creek Event Center at Four Winds Casino Friday for a concert by the singer/songwriter/actor.
Springfield, who first portrayed doctor Noah Drake on the hit soap opera "General Hospital," later returned to reprise his role on the series during the 2000's and again in 2012 and 2013 for various episodes. In his current concert at Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, Michigan, Springfield was enthusiastic, interacted with fans and even traveled throughout the crowd at one point during the show.
The singer is currently touring in support of his latest album "The Snake King," which was released on Jan. 26. The album features blues-rock sounds and showcases a different side of the popular artist.
On Springfield's current playlist were songs from "The Snake King" as well as a selection of his hits. Featured during the show were tunes "Little Demon" and "The Devil That You Know," as well as favorites such as "Love Is Alright Tonight" and "I've Done Everything for You."
Springfield, who still tours regularly, is one who updates his shows often. He rotates different tunes and performs covers occasionally. Some of his concerts are often "Stripped Down Tours" where Springfield will offer stories about his life, career and tunes. This current Four Winds show, however, saw the singer in a rockin' mode with the volume turned up.
In concert, Springfield also presents video clips and photos from different phases of his career including music videos and the movie "Hard to Hold" from 1984.
Among songs performed by Springfield were Katy Perry's hit "Roar," "Affair of the Heart," 'Jesus Saves," "Don't Talk to Strangers," "Love Somebody," and the mega hit "Jessie's Girl."
