Rick Springfield - Rick Springfield Embarking On First Solo Tour Of Australia

Singer Rick Springfield is to embark on his first ever solo tour of his native Australia.

The Jessie's Girl hitmaker, who was born in Sydney, has not toured the country since he parted with his pop rock group Zoot to embark on a solo career in 1971. He also had a regular acting role in U.S. soap General Hospital for two years during the 1980s.

Springfield has toured the U.S. many times over the years and even appeared in the Countdown concert series in Australia in 2007, but he has never embarked on a full solo tour in his home country.

He tells Australian website News.com, "I am and will always be an Aussie (Australian). My best memories of my early career are all centred around Australia. It will forever be my home. I can't believe I have never done a full tour in Oz as a solo performer. I am a f**king Aussie boy."

The nine-date trek kicks off on 7 October (14) in Perth.
