Rick Springfield, Parkland has found your replacement.
The city had snagged Springfield to perform a free concert to celebrate its 50th birthday. But the ’80s pop icon pulled the plug – forgoing a $49,000 fee – after the news got out, since he was playing at a ticket-required concert months before.
The city now has a $27,500 deal with Little River Band, an Australian rock group also known as LRB.
Parkland residents and everybody else are welcome at the April 27 concert in Pine Trails Park.
