Ricky has also opened for acts such as Cheap Trick, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Def Leppard, Bryan Adams and Sheryl Crow over the past few years, Ricky earned his salt engaging large crowds, yet Rickyâ€™s headline performances are captivating and give his fans a feeling of intimacy and connection with his music.
