Rick Springfield at the MAC

Now that our kiddos are teenagers my hubby and I find that we are spending more time by ourselves.  Living in rural Iowa there isn’t a lot to do around home so we love it when we have a reason to go to the city for some excellent entertainment.  I apologize in advance for the cell phone pics, I didn’t want to run the chance of having my DSLR confiscated.

Little River Band, Eddie Money, MidAmerica Center


The night started with Little River Band.  I wasn’t familiar with many of their songs, but they were right on tune and played excellent.  Next up was Eddie Money, I recognized all of his songs and many were favorites from my childhood that I remember watching on MTV.  He still does a great job with the sax.

When Rick Springfield came up he really got everybody going.  While singing Human Touch he actually came out into the crowd and chair surfed through the floor level then up to the 2nd level! We were so surprised and it was exciting to watch. I was too busy fumbling with my phone to get a pic, but my friend Lisa from the Walking Tourists who was a few rows in front of us got a shot of him while he was mere feet away from them!!

To keep an eye on other events at the MidAmerica Center just check out their website here.  We appreciated the free parking and took the opportunity to park near Hooters.  After the concert, while everybody else was waiting their turn to get out we just walked across the street for some wings and nachos- the kitchen is open until 1am.
