The author of the megahit from the late eighties, the award-winning American musician Richard Marx, will remind the Czech audience of it as part of the world tour The Songwriter Tour on August 30, 2022 in the Hybernia Theater in Prague. Tickets for the concert are available in the TicketLIVE network.
Richard Marx was discovered in the early eighties by another famous writer of many immortal hits, Lionel Richie. He was convinced of the indisputable authorial and interpretive talent of the seventeen-year-old young man. Since then, Richard began to devote himself fully to his favorite discipline, writing songs for himself and other famous colleagues. He wrote or produced hits for, for example, the boy band N’Sync, Luther Vandross or Keith Urban. He has collaborated with many other great musicians, for example he toured with The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr in 2006.
Richard has sold more than 30 million records worldwide, a Grammy Award for Best Song of the Year, several Grammy nominations, a quadruple platinum record for the hits Satisfied and Right Here Waiting, and many other music industry awards. For over 30 years, his hits regularly appear at the top of the global charts. He holds the record of being the only male artist in the world to have 7 consecutive Top 5 songs on the most prestigious US singles chart, Billboard. “For the past few years, I’ve been mainly focused on touring around the world. But I started out as a composer, and that’s what I feel like the most. So I wanted to remind myself how important composing is to me. I never completely stopped writing songs, I have a lot of small fragments of melodies, lyrics and voice notes on my phone,” says Richard about his current work.
Richard Marx’s concert in Prague’s Hybernia Music Theater will be his first ever in the Czech Republic.
