NEW HAVEN — Power pop singer from the 1980s Rick Springfield will play the Shubert Theatre on May 11 for one performance at 8 p.m. as part of his Stripped Down Solo Acoustic Tour, the theater announced this week.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday online at shubert.com, at the Shubert Box Office and by phone at 203-562-5666. This special concert engagement is an intimate, solo performance that gives audience members the opportunity to get up-close and personal with the man and hear the stories behind the songs, a Shubert official said in a release.

Springfield is a Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician who has sold 25 million albums with hits such as “Jessie’s Girl,” “Don’t Talk to Strangers,” “An Affair of the Heart,” “Love Somebody” and “Human Touch.” He’s also an actor who has starred opposite Meryl Streep in the feature film, “Ricki and the Flash,” and played Pastor Charles on “American Horror Story.”

Springfield’s latest Album “The Snake King” finds him travelling down a dusty dirt road to explore the blues side of his rock ‘n’ roll.

Tickets for the show are $52-$77.
