Springfield was born in Australia. A member of the band Zoot from 1969-1971, he then launched his solo career with the song “Speak To the Sky” which broke into the Australian Top 10 in mid 1972. Moving to the United States, he had a No. 1 hit in both Australia and the US with “Jesse’s Girl” in 1981. That same year he received a Grammy for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. He went on to score four more Top-10 hits with “I’ve Done Everything For You”, “Don’t Talk To Strangers”, “Affair of the Heart”, and “Love Somebody”. Three of those hits appeared on the “Working Class Dog” album which charted at #7 on Billboard. He would continue to chart even more hits in the 80’s (17 Top 40 hits in total) including “Calling All Girls”, “What Kind of Fool Am I”, “Love is Alright Tonite”, “I Get Excited”, “Human Touch”, “Don’t Walk Away”, “State of the Heart” and “Rock of Life”. “Having seen Rick Springfield live each of two times, said Shellabration President, Jim Reed, his live performances are high energy and dynamic. It’s the perfect fit for Shellabration. It will be a rock show”, stated Reed.
 
In addition to his prolific music and recording career, Rick Springfield is equally well known for his acting career. He most notably played the role of Dr. Noah Drake for many years on the hit TV series, General Hospital. He also played roles and made cameo appearance in many TV shows including The Six Million Dollar Man, The Rockford Files and The Incredible Hulk, among many, many others. He also played movie roles in Ricki and the Flash, Traces, and High Tide (a movie for which he wrote and recorded the soundtrack).
 
Rounding out the lineup will be The Babys. They achieved their peak popularity from 1977 to 1980. The British based band, formed in 1975, would sign with Chrysalis Records. Their first hit, “Isn’t It Time”, would reach a peak on the US charts in the #13 position. They would go on to record the hits, “Every Time I Think of You”, “Head First”, “Back On My Feet Again”, “Midnight Rendezvous”, and “Turn and Walk Away”. Having recently previewed the artist at a show in Medina, Minnesota, Shellabration Vice-President, Ted Bodensteiner expressed excitement about bringing the band to Fort Dodge. “The Babys will rock Shellabration. They deliver a tight, energetic, engaging set, said Bodensteiner. It took me back in time to when I first saw them at the Iowa Jam in 1980. Their performance will dovetail perfectly with Rick Springfield’s set”, added Bodensteiner. Reed echoed the excitement. “They only made five Iowa appearances between 1978 and 1980, said Reed. They’ve never played our state since the band’s reformation in 2013. It’s pretty cool that we, Shellabration, get to be the first to bring them to Iowa in 44 years. Our lineup should make for a good regional draw, claimed Reed.
