Rick Springfield Australian Tour Cancelled

Rick Springfield has cancelled his upcoming Australian tour to make a movie with Meryl Streep.

Springfield was due to start his first ever Australian tour in Perth on October 7 but will stay in the USA to work on Jonathan Demme’s new movie ‘Ricki and the Flash’.

Rick Springfield hinted at his involvement in the movie a month ago when he posted a pic of himself, Streep and Demme on Twitter but quickly removed the image. That image is back on his Twitter today.

‘Ricki and the Flash’ is about an aging rockstar (Streep) who tries to connect with her kids. The movie also stars Kevin Kline and Steep’s real-life daughter Mamie Gummer.

Demme has made the concert and documentary movies ‘Heart of Gold’, ‘Neil Young’s Trunk Show’ and ‘Neil Young Journey’s’ with Neil Young. He also directed ‘Philadelphia’, ‘Married To The Mob’ and ‘Silence of the Lambs’.

‘Ricki and the Flash’ will premiere on June 26, 2015.
