To the casual observer, Richard Marx is the soft rock/contemporary adult artist responsible for the smash hit “Right Hear Waiting” ballad from the 1989 album Repeat Offender, and perhaps for “Hazard” from 1991’s Rush Street. In fact, Marx has just released his 12th studio album, Limitless, and it’s filled with typically heartfelt, emotional rock nuggets. Marx is very often misunderstood, but he’s no Michael Bolton. His songs are beautifully crafted, and he’s worked with the likes of Cher, Ringo Starr and Luther Vandross. This intimate set at the Grammy Museum will see his engage in a Q&A, discussing his career from start to now, before a short performance. Similar recent events featuring Lana Del Rey and Sammy Hagar have been superb.
Richard Marx performs at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3 at the Grammy Museum.
