Did I mention that Rick Springfield is 62 years old? And you know he’s best known as a teen hearththrob from his time on “General Hospital,” his short-lived Saturday morning cartoon, and his early MTV successes in the late 1970s/early 1980s.

So Springfield, the consummate showman, plays that up. After “Jessie’s Girl,” he disappears for a few minutes before returning looking like what you see above.

Glasses on. Shirt off.

He’s 62, ladies.

Two guitarists. One shirt.

There were, I believe, swoons to be heard in the crowd. And the husbands and I had mixed emotions between “that pandering beefcake jerk” and “I’m half his age and not nearly in that good a shape.” Jealousy is never becoming.

And then he brought out the roses again.

Sorry, ladies, he didn’t relive that scene from “Hard to Hold” where you got to see his butt.
