Multi-platinum album selling and award-winning singer, songwriter and producer Richard Marx returns to The Orleans Showroom for two nights, February 11 and 12, each evening at 8 p.m.
With more than 20 years in the music industry, Richard Marx has established himself as a hit-making singer/songwriter, with more than 30 million albums sold and 13 No. 1 songs to his credit.
But even long-time Richard Marx fans have never heard him like this – performing his greatest hits while backed by 20 stringed instruments, creating a unique and unforgettable acoustic experience.
Marx’s solo career began in 1987 with his self-titled debut album and first single, “Don’t Mean Nothing.” Combined with his follow-up album two years later, “Repeat Offender,” Marx sold more than 10 million albums. From his debut through 1990, Marx became the first male solo artist to have his first seven singles reach the top five on the Billboard singles chart, including the well-known hits “Hold On to the Nights,” “Satisfied” and “Right Here Waiting.”
The hits kept coming in the early ‘90s as Marx released the double-platinum selling album “Rush Street,” and 1994’s “Paid Vacation,” which included the worldwide hit, “Now and Forever.” The song spent 13 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart.
In addition to writing and recording hit after hit on his own albums, Marx has written and produced songs with some of the biggest names in music, including Barbra Streisand, Daughtry, Leann Rimes, Travis Tritt, Natalie Cole and Josh Groban, among many others. In 2004, Marx won the Song of the Year Grammy Award for “Dance With My Father,” which he co-wrote with the late Luther Vandross. In 2005, he collaborated with Keith Urban for the country singer’s hit song, “Better Life,” and in 2007 the duo teamed up again to co-write another chart-topper for Urban,“Everybody.”
In late 2009, Marx released “Emotional Remains,” a modern rock record featuring collaborations with Matt Scannell, Jennifer Hanson and Kenny Loggins.
