Richard Marx returns to the MACC for a special solo acoustic concert. He has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, starting with his self-titled debut which went to #8 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album spawned four Top 5 singles, including Hold on to the Nights and Don’t Mean Nothing, which earned him a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. His follow-up, 1989’s Repeat Offender, was even more successful, hitting #1 and going quadruple-platinum with two #1 singles, Satisfied and Right Here Waiting. He has since made history as the only male artist whose first seven singles reached the Top 5 on the Billboard charts.
Richard has also written a #1 single in each of the last four decades, an accomplishment only reached by Michael Jackson. He has written with numerous artists, including To Where You Are, the first hit single from Josh Groban’s debut album, and the NSYNC smash, This I Promise You. He went on to earn a 2004 Song of the Year Grammy for co-authoring Luther Vandross’ Dance with My Father. Overall, he has scored 14 #1 singles (including Keith Urban’s #1 smash Long Hot Summer), both as a performer and as a songwriter/producer.
Marx recently published his memoir, Stories to Tell, a candid, enlightening and entertaining look at his life, career and the art and business of music.
