PiercingMetal Thoughts: When I was growing and listening to a lot of Rock radio I found that you couldn’t slide around the radio dial without hearing a couple of Chicago classics. Now this wasn’t an every now and again occurrence but almost a daily thing and this made me more of a fan of the bands most revered numbers. I never managed to catch them in concert despite this appreciation. My background with Rick Springfield came from my high school years and the girls in my classes loving everything about him and the song “Jesse’s Girl”. Considering that I still know all of the words for this one it’s safe to say that it’s a bit of a hit. I’ve never seen Rick in concert either and kinda feel that I need to see this one to cross the two artists off my live music bucket list. What do you fine readers think about this tour? Is it something that you think you will be seeing when it comes to an arena near you next summer? Chime in down below in the comments section since its always awesome to hear from you.
