It makes me so happy to see all the great responses on Twitter from Rick Springfield’s shows at Walt Disney World. (Would be even better if I was there!). Such a brilliant move by whoever schedules his concerts. All this exposure to people who may not otherwise be familiar with his music (aside from “Jessie’s Girl,” because everyone seems to know that one) or attend one of his concerts.
The comments ranged from excitement about seeing their teen crush to amazement that he’s 66 years old to praise for putting on such a great show. Since he’s really the only musician I follow this closely, it’s easy to forget that not every rock star goes into the audience for hugs and selfies and interacts so closely with those in the audience. I can’t really explain why this makes me so happy, but it does. It’s almost like the delight one might feel if a family member receives acclaim. Plus it just looks like he is having so much fun.
I had a great dream last night, which was probably because I watched a Rickation Club Med recap video yesterday. I was on one of those trips except there was only about 15 of us and we got to hang out with RS in some tropical locale. And he had his shirt off the whole time. (And then my husband called and ended up stopping by the island. Really).
Eight more days until RS Is in town and the AZ State Fair will be the happiest place on earth!
(OK, that was corny. Whatever.)
