Frontier Touring and Arena Touring are delighted to announce Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, producer and best-selling author Richard Marx as he brings his 9-date ‘The Songwriter Tour’ to New Zealand for the very first time and returning to Australia in February and March 2023.
“I couldn’t be more excited to return to my home away from home, Australia, to perform for the fans once again. That I’ll also finally be able to play my first ever concerts in New Zealand is icing on the cake. Can’t wait to get there.” Richard Marx
Richard Marx is a cultural touchstone, whose influence remains steadfast in pop culture today having written and performed some of the most indelible hits of the late ’80s and early ’90s, ‘Endless Summer Nights’, ‘Hold on to the Nights’, ‘Should’ve Known Better’, ‘Don’t Mean Nothing’ and ‘Right Here Waiting’.
Marx’s unwavering talent has led him to a string of triumphs through classics ‘Right Here Waiting’ which reached #1 status in both Australia and New Zealand and ‘Hazard’, also peaking at #1 in Australia and #7 in New Zealand. With a loyal following Down Under, Marx has enjoyed eight Top 40 Hits in Australia along with other smash singles such as the hauntingly beautiful ‘Now and Forever’, ‘Angelia’, ‘Take This Heart’ and ‘Satisfied’.
Today, Marx releases his thirteenth studio album, the multi-genre-spanning Songwriter with four sets of all new songs, each influenced by his success across pop, rock, country music and ballad genres.
