Academy Presents:

Richard Marx


Tickets for this event will be released to members February 14, 2019. Remaining tickets will be released to the public on February 22, 2019.



Richard Marx has sold more than 30 million albums, owns 26 top 20 singles and 17 top 10s and, as a songwriter, earned a Grammy for song of the year. He’s also the writer of fourteen number one songs.


As a performer, songwriter and producer, Richard Marx’s nearly three-decade-long career has had plenty of highlights. His self-titled debut went to #8 and spawned four Top 5 singles, including the chart-topping “Hold on to the Nights”.


The follow-up, 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 and Paid Vacation went platinum, Marx achieved a seven-year string of triumphs that rivaled any in pop-rock music history.


To mark the release of Rush Street, he embarked on a 24-hour, five-city blitz on MGM Grand Airlines, performing at every stop, a record that has yet to be broken. 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.


Richard remains active as a live performer, with an ongoing solo acoustic tour that’s taken him around the U.S. as well as to China, Russia and throughout Europe.
