Artist Rick Springfield will perform in Columbia County this June as WBBQ celebrates its 65th anniversary.
Tickets for the radio station’s 65th Birthday Bash at Evans Towne Center Park currently are on sale. The concert is at 6:30 p.m. June 8.
Springfield’s hit, “Jessie’s Girl,” topped the charts in the 1980s. He also released songs, “I’ve Done Everything For You” and “Don’t Talk to Strangers.”
“We just thought that he would appeal to a lot of the demographic in Columbia County,” said county Community Events Specialist Keela Colombraro.
Tickets cost $25 in advance and $30 on the concert day. VIP tickets closest to the stage cost $40.
About 3,000 tickets are available.
Colombraro said she’s already received several calls and emails from people excited about the concert.
“Everybody remembers ‘Jessie’s Girl,’” she said, “so everybody wants to relive the 80s.”
