A couple of new concert announcements for what should be big shows this spring: one from an '80s heartthrob and one from a folk legend.

First up is Rick Springfield, the man behind such timeless hits as "Jessie's Girl," "Love Somebody" and "I've Done Everything For You," as well as one of the best TV cameos in recent memory on Californication.

Springfield will play Northern Quest Resort & Casino on March 19; tickets are $59/$69/$89 and go on sale online and via the Northern Quest box office this Friday, Jan. 11, at 9 am.

Tickets for Garfunkel's show go on sale Thursday, Jan. 17, at 12:01 am (so, you know, midnight on Wednesday if you're up late), and will cost $40/$45/$50/$55/$65/$75. They're available through the Fox Theater website, or at the box office starting at 10 am, or by calling 624-1200.
