RICK SPRINGFIELD
8 p.m., Timberwood Amphitheater, Magic Springs, $35.99-$45.99.

Calling all cougars, cubs, and “Tiger Beat” readers. While owning the charts from 1981-84 with “Jessie's Girl,” “Don't Talk To Strangers,” and “I've Done Everything For You” (written by Sammy Hagar), Richard Lewis Springthorpe simultaneously charmed soap opera viewers on General Hospital as Dr. Noah Drake, having taken the role because he didn't figure his soon-to-be multi-platinum was going to sell. The Australian-born musician ditched his high school diploma in 1967 to build a career Down Under, entertaining Vietnam troops before scoring his first No. 1 hit in 1971. Hollywood-bound a year later, his image was plastered across pages of “Tiger Beat” soon after, and by 1973 a Saturday morning cartoon series on TV called “Mission: Magic!” was centered around Springfield. Quite a storied career, with movies, TV, pop anthems and such. And he's still on his game. Park admission price includes the show.
