Rick Springfield And Chicago Set To Play Salt Lake City Concert
Two powerhouse bands that emerged in the late seventies and achieved great commercial success are heading out on the road together beginning in June 2020.
Classic rocker Rick Springfield is co-headlining a 27-date, summer tour, with Chicago beginning June 12 in California. Springfield will end his lengthy 2019-2020 solo tour April 23, 2020, in Florida, to begin preparations for his tour with Chicago.
Chicago, who formed in 1967 in...you guessed...Chicago, and recorded such popular songs as "Hard Habit to Break," "You're the Inspiration," and "25 or 6 to 4," are touring themselves in 2020, including a Las Vegas residency in February and March.
Rick Springfield, who is Australian-born, is best known for such classic rock hits as "Jessie's Girl," "Don't Talk to Strangers," and "Love Somebody." Together both bands have recorded 24 top 10 charting songs. The two acts will play together at the USANA Amphitheater in Salt Lake City on June 16, 2020. The tour finishes up In Illinois on August 1.
Tickets for the Rick Springfield / Chicago "Summer Tour" start at $35 for lawn seats, and gradually increase in price the closer you buy to the stage. Rick Springfield is also know for various acting rolls, most notably for playing himself on the Showtime series, "Californication," which ran for seven seasons beginning in 2007.
Chicago has eight dates in 2020 at Las Vegas' Venetian Theater, between February 28 and March 7, according to the band's official website.
The USANA Amphitheater is a 20,000 seat venue located approximately 230 miles southeast of Twin Falls, in West Valley City, Utah. Chicago was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2016, while Springfield has yet to be.
