Rick Springfield
's career has hit an all-time low ... literally -- going underground Wednesday morning in NYC for an impromptu performance of "Jessie's Girl" ... on a SUBWAY PLATFORM ... and it's awesome.

It all went down during rush hour -- around 8:00 AM -- Springfield whipped out his guitar out of nowhere for a flash mini-concert, belting out three songs for busy commuters ... including the classic "Jessie's Girl."

And as a testament to how awesome it was ... a massive crowd of New Yorkers -- who don't stop for anything -- actually gathered around to sing along.

Check the clip.

the real diva    

it's obvious a publicity thing. i remember being in Great Falls Montana a few years back and seeing a bar advertise a upcoming show of his. so he is doing the bar scene. so he is still working.he is probably promoting a show or cd.

That video may have been shot yesterday but that blonde woman's hair is clearly from the 80s...

That is great of Rick to stop from his busy schedule and perform, while he is in between gigs. Plus he is promoting his new CD..

Wish more artists mixed with the fans, like Rick has!

He is not homeless and he is doing what he loves and he still has thousands of fans! Stop hating. It obviously is not about the money TMZ. I was so happy that I got a chance to see him in 2001 in Palmdale, CA! He gave a great show and his fans ate it up!

Sometimes it not about your career, you reach a certain point and you consider others. I don't think his career is in such a lull that he would need to promote it on a subway platform. Good job Rick

This is the main level of Penn Station by the Long Island Rail Road. Not the subway or a platform by any means...
