Rick Springfield storyteller show to hit LA, other U.S. cities

Grammy award-winning musician, actor and New York Times bestselling author Rick Springfield has hit the road for his first ever solo tour.

The Stripped Down Tour, includes storytelling, a few of Springfield’s many hits, songs from his latest CD, Songs for the End of the World, old favorites that the singer has never played live, and a question and answer session with the audience.
Now, Rick Springfield will bring The Stripped Down Tour to LA for a performance at The Broad Stage on Sunday, May 11. Tickets are on sale now through and   
The tour has added dates throughout North America in 2014. Springfield felt the time was right for a change. Wanting to bring a more intimate and different show to his audience, the veteran pop/rocker is excited to bring this change to his fans.

“There are some old favorite songs that I’ve written that I have never had the chance to perform live mainly because they have never fit into our sets. I think my fans will be as excited to hear these songs live as I am to play them live. I’ve also added a Q&A section with this tour as a way to connect with my audience.”
Early last year, Springfield collaborated with The Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl on the song, "The Man That Never Was," for the Sound City soundtrack, Sound City: Real to Reel. At the 2014 Grammys, the album was awarded the Grammy for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media. 

In May 2014 Springfield’s first novel, Magnificent Vibration will be released and in addition he will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For more information on the tour and Rick Springfield, visit
The Broad Stage at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center opened its doors in Santa Monica in October 2008. Inspired by Italian "horseshoe" theaters, yet conceived in an absolutely contemporary vernacular, The Broad Stage is unlike any performance space in the country. It is intimate with 499 seats – allowing eye contact with artists from the boxes to the back row – forging a new kind of artist and audience experience in Los Angeles.
