Affair of the Heart

Affair of the heart, Kristina, Don't Talk to Strangers...any of these songs ringing a bell?  How about Jesse's Girl?  Okay...now do you know who I am talking about?
That's right...tonight I am going to a Rick Springfield concert!  
I know what you're thinking...you read someone's blog day in and day out and you think you really know a person, right?  I bet very few of you know what a HUGE fan I am of Rick Springfield.  It's sort of my dirty little secret.  I have been to many of this concerts over the years 
(the above and below photos are from a concert I went to a few years ago).   
I usually make sure that I get seats as close as possible.
There I am in the second row (in the white sweater).  
Here I am with Rick a few years ago when he visited our local mall.
I have met him several times over the years.  I think I was 13 when I went to my first Rick Springfield concert.  It was at Madison Square Garden and our seats were pretty far back.  As the years have gone on it's gotten easier and easier to get closer seats (lol).  That works just fine for me.  Tonight he is playing at a small theater in New Jersey, a short distance from my house.
Our tickets are tenth row...but knowing this theater and knowing how his concerts work...I should be standing in the front row in no time.  Lol
I am such a huge fan that for my 39th's birthday my husband threw me a surprise party (knowing he could never surprise me at 40).  The theme - Rick Springfield.
Here is a photo of the wine he had made up for the event.

So now you know!
I know what you're thinking...you're thinking "who knew"?
 Either that or, for my younger followers, you're thinking "who the heck is Rick Springfield'?

Hope you have a great weekend!

-Judy

The minute I saw that title, I knew exactly who you were talking about. I love him!

OMG. Every time I hear something about him, I chuckle. There were a few singers who you could get ridiculed for liking back in the day and he was one of them! I also liked Barry Manilow. Oh the ridicule!! Remember the beating that Billy Rae Cyris took too!? Boy are him and his daughter laughing all the way to the bank! Thanks for the trip back!! Enjoy the concert.

I knew who you were talking about right away. I can't say I'm a huge fan, but I do like him. I was a bigger fan when I was younger.
Have a great time! (Not that you need me to tell you that!!! LOL!)

How COOL! I loved him too Judy, he is so cute, and I loved all his songs. I remember when he was on General hospital and that is where my love affair began. I honestly have not thought about him for sometime. Thanks for the sweet reminder.

I love it Judy!! I have Jesse's Girl running through my head now. So excited for you and only wish I could come and "swoon" with you. LOL! My first real concert was Chicago and I still remember seeing the stage spin around and thinking that was the coolest thing ever! :-)
Have a fabulous time friend,
Vanessa
