Richard Marx Calls Out Audience Member: Watch It

During last weekend’s concert, Richard Marx wished to have a word with the parents of a rude audience member who interrupted his January 21 performance.

As part of a January co-headlining tour with Rick Springfield, the veteran American singer-songwriter was playing the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York when someone in the audience consistently interrupted his 1989 song “Angelia.”

When the song was over, the now 60-year old singer/songwriter singled out the nuisance in the room saying:

“I’m genuinely curious who raised you to think that anything you could yell out was more important than what we were doing.”. “Learn some f—ing manners, lady!”

Throughout his decades’ long career, Marx has enjoyed significant success as songwriter for other artists along with several of his own recordings recognizing Top 10 chart status of the Billboard Hot 100 in the 1980s and 1990s. In 1988 Richard had #1 singles with “Hold on to the Nights,” and “Right Here Waiting” and “Satisfied” in 1989. Nominated for five Grammy Awards, Richard took home the trophy for song of the year in 2004 for “Dance With My Father,” which he wrote and composed with Luther Vandross. 

Marx’s mini tour with Springfield was scheduled to continue this weekend, but a group of dates were postponed when Springfield was diagnosed with the flu.

“I contracted one of the nasty flus running rampant and have not been able to shake it,” wrote Springfield Instagram. “I never want to not be at my best performing especially especially on this special show that my dear friend Richard and I have put together. We will reschedule as soon as possible and return with an unforgettable show.”

Richard Marx’s latest album, Songwriter, was released in 2022.
