Rick Springfield, known for a string of hits including "Jessie's Girl," "I've Done Everything for You," "Don't Talk to Strangers," "Affair of the Heart" and "Love Somebody," will return to the Granite State for a "Stripped Down" show at The Colonial Theatre in Keene on Thursday, March 20. Tickets, which range from $39.50 to $95, go on sale at noon today at 352-2033 or thecolonial.org. "This time out he's playing alone, offering up a 'Storytellers'-style show featuring his voice and guitar," venue officials said. "The stripped-back format allows him to reach outside the box for his song selections, too; he's played Fleetwood Mac's "Oh! Well" after talking about his experiences touring Vietnam in the late '60s during the war to entertain the troops; Hambone Willie Newbern's 'Rollin' and Tumblin' after recalling his blues band experience, and Badfinger's 'Baby Blue' to talk about some (literally) high times with Todd Rundgren." Springfield's most recent release is 2012's "Songs for the End of the World," which includes the tunes "Wide Awake," "Our Ship's Sinking," "'I Hate Myself" and "You & Me." "The screaming tweens that populate One Direction and Justin Bieber concerts these days have nothing on their moms," teased Colonial officials about Springfield's legion of fans.
