Rick Springfield / Ingram Hill Concert

We all went to the Muskegon Summer Celebration last night to see Rick Springfield. Opening was Ingram Hill, a band from Memphis with potential.

As for Rick, it was a mixed bag. He didn't seem to be "on" at the beginning of the show but definitely improved about 1/3 of the way in. The audience, most of whom, in our section only were aware of 1 Rick Springfield song....yep, Jessie's Girl started getting a bit restless. Steph and Jen commented that they're parents "looked like they were sitting in a hospital" which seemed appropriate. As a Springfield fan, I enjoyed hearing some of the old standards including Love Somebody, Affair of the Heart, Human Touch and Don't Talk to Strangers. He sprinkled in some of his new stuff which people couldn't quite relate to but you've certainly got to give the guy credit for still coming out with new material. He has a new album of cover songs coming out next week in fact.

Just before the first encore the DeBruyn family had had enough so we left with nary a song from the classic Tao album. Oh well. Next time, Steph and I vowed to drive separately :)
