Richard Marx Tour  

Odell Williamson Auditorium to host Marx and more!

BY: AMI BROWN

As a performer, songwriter and producer, Richard Marx’s nearly three-decade-long career has had innumerable highlights. You can catch him at the Odell Williamson BCC venue September 6th.  This show is sure to sell out, so I’d get your tickets pretty fast!  The Chicago native has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, starting with his self-titled debut album which went to #8 and spawned four Top 5 singles, including the chart-topping “Hold on to the Nights,” with “Don’t Mean Nothing” earning him a Grammy nomination for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. Tues. – Fri. 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Sat. 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. 1105 N. Howe Street Southport 910-523-1203 Eclectic & Farm House Home Decor Too #ASouthernHospitalityShoppingExperience The follow-up, 1989’s Repeat Offender, was even more successful, hitting #1 and going quadruple-platinum with two #1 singles in “Satisfied” and “Right Here Waiting.” When both Rush Street (with two #1 AC hits in “Keep Coming Back” and “Hazard”) and Paid Vacation (with its #1 AC hit, “Now and Forever”) went platinum, Marx achieved a seven-year string of triumphs that rivaled any in pop-rock music history. To this day, he is the only male artist in history to have his first seven singles reach the Top 5 on the Billboard charts  Tickets available and more info – (910) 755-7416
