Rick Springfield has been an actor and author for decades, but most importantly, he's a highly accomplished musician, and he's bringing his hit songs to the Quad Cities this February.

First a member of Australian pop-rock group Zoot from 1969-1971, Rick launched his solo career with the single, "Speak to the Sky," which hit the Top 10 in Australia in 1972. When he moved to the United States, Rick hit big with his Number 1 hit and classic, Jessie's Girl, for which he received a Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance.

Rick followed up with four more Top 10 hits, including:

  • I've Done Everything for You
  • Don't Talk to Strangers 
  • Affair of the Heart
  • Love Somebody

Breaking into the acting world, Springfield starred in the movie Hard to Hold in 1984, before appearing in shows like High Tide and General Hospital. In 2016, he starred as Vince Vincente, also known as Lucifer in Supernatural. He went on to star as himself in various shows throughout the years and starred in an episode of American Horror Story.

Rick Springfield is bringing his hit songs to the Rust Belt on February 26th. You can buy tickets at the door or through The Rust Belt's website.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
