One of the most popular romantic songs of all time – “Right Here Waiting” – will be heard live in the Czech Republic for the first time. The critically acclaimed American songwriter and singer of the late 80s megahit, Richard Marx, will perform in Prague as part of his acoustic world tour promoting his new album “Limitless”. The concert will take place on June 26th, 2020, at the Hybernia Theatre. Tickets are available through the TicketLIVE network.
Richard Marx was discovered by the legendary hitmaker Lionel Richie, who was impressed by both the musical talent and songwriting skills of the then seventeen-year-old. Following his discovery, Richard could fully pursue his favourite discipline – writing songs for himself and other famous colleagues. He wrote and produced hits for the likes of boyband N’Sync, Luther Vandross or Keith Urban. He also worked with many other great musicians – in 2006 he toured with Ringo Starr of The Beatles.
Richard has sold more than 30 million records worldwide, received a Grammy for song of the year, several Grammy nominations, as well as a four-time platinum certifications for his hits “Satisfied” and “Right Here Waiting” and many other music industry awards.
His hits have been appearing in chart across the world for more than 30 years, and he has since made history as the only male artist whose first seven singles reached the Top 5 on the Billboard charts.
“I’ve been concentrated so much on touring – that’s been the main focus of my career for the past few years,”Richard says. “But I started out as a songwriter and I had to remind myself how important that is. When I was young the impetus for me to write a song was because I loved it and because it brought me great joy. I wanted to come back to that. I had lost sight of the purpose, but I started focusing on writing again. I’ve never really stopped writing – I always have little snippets and voice notes in my phone – but this time I started to finish songs and collaborate more. The next thing I knew I had an album’s worth of music,”says Richard about making his new album “Limitless”, out on February 7th 2020.
On this album Richard worked with his son Lucas. Together they penned the first single “Another One Down” in just an hour, and recorded it in only a few more.
