Rick Springfield to hit
Thrasher-Horne stage on May 26
ORANGE PARK – During the past four decades, Rick Springfield has worn many hats as an entertainer and performer. The creator of some of the finest power-pop of the 1980s, a Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician who has sold 25 million albums and scored 17 U.S. Top 40 hits, including “Jessie’s Girl,” “Don’t Talk to Strangers,” “An Affair of the Heart,” “I’ve Done Everything for You,” “Love Somebody” and “Human Touch.”
He’s an accomplished actor who starred opposite Meryl Streep in the feature film “Ricki and the Flash: and gave a chameleonic performance as the creepy Dr. Irving Pitlor in HBO’s prestige drama “True Detective,” earned great reviews for his portrayal of Lucifer on the CW hit “Supernatural” and  most recently played the insane Pastor Charles on FX’s worldwide hit series “American Horror Story.”
It has been a long and fruitful affair, and one that has gifted him with a powerful connection to his legions of devoted fans, who pack his annual fan getaway events, as well as the nearly 100 shows a year he performs both with his band and solo in an intimate “storyteller” setting that he captured on the 2015 CD/DVD and concert film, “Stripped Down.” Though too self-deprecating to discuss his immense appeal, he will acknowledge that the fans connect with him through the music. “I guess they think I’m honest,” Springfield said. “They must like my approach, what I write about. I think they like that I have a sense of humor in it at times. Because the ‘cute’ thing isn’t going to last forever.”

Warrant to rock Thrasher-Horne on Nov. 3
ORANGE PARK – At its core, WARRANT is an American rock band through and through. Hitting it big in 1989, the Hollywood, California-based band rose through the ranks of the local Sunset Strip scene to the level of multiplatinum-selling, chart-topping success.
The band first came into the national spotlight with their debut album “Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich.” The album produced radio and MTV chart-toppers “Down Boys,” “Sometimes She Cries,” and the massive hit “Heaven,” which reached #1 in Rolling Stone and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks in a row.
The band will bring its hard-rocking act to the Thrasher-Horne Center on Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at thcenter.org.
Warrant’s sophomore album Cherry Pie debuted in September 1990. This album, which spawned the MTV and radio hits “Cherry Pie,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” and “I Saw Red,” all reached the Top 10 in the United States and went on to sell 3 million copies, getting Platinum sales in Canada and Australia. The band has played 200 shows in support of Cherry Pie it wound up being one of the top-grossing tours of 1991.
Warrant’s signature style of rock music is very catchy and yet very melodic and remains the band’s signature sound today. In September 2008, Robert Mason replaced Jani Lane as lead vocalist joining the other four original members, Jerry Dixon, Steven Sweet, Joey Allen and Erik Turner. Their current album Louder Harder Faster, released on Frontiers Records, has been highly regarded in reviews and embraced by fans.
