Five Best Music Events in South Florida This Week
From "Jessie's Girl" to General Hospital, Rick Springfield's coming for you, Hollywood.
Rick Springfield may be a Grammy award-winning songwriter and former General Hospital heartthrob, but all that success can't make up for the fact the hopeless romantic still wishes he had "Jessie's Girl." Maybe all that will change when the Aussie rocker — and one of the dreamiest 66-year-old men you'll ever meet — takes over the Hard Rock Live this week with Loverboy and the Romantics.
With Loverboy and the Romantics. Wednesday, September 2, 8 p.m. Hard Rock Live, 1 Seminole Way, Hollywood; 954-797-5531; hardrocklivehollywoodfl.com. Tickets cost $40 to $60 plus fees via ticketmaster.com.
