On tour in support of his recently released memoir, Stories To Tell, along with the book’s soundtrack, multi-platinum recording artist, RICHARD MARX returns to The Nancy and David Bilheimer Capitol Theatre on Tuesday, March 22 at 8 pm.
Released in July of this year, Richard Marx’s Stories To Tell (Simon and Schuster) begins a few months before the coronavirus pandemic; then transports us back to 1968 when he was five years old; taking us on an exciting, insightful, heartbreaking and hilarious journey through his life and career, and culminates a few months after the pandemic lockdown of 2020 with him battling a mysterious illness. This literary debut is just the latest chapter in a nearly 40-year career that’s seen the Chicago native score an astounding fourteen #1 songs as a songwriter for both himself and other artists and the distinction of having written a number one song in four different decades.
Stories To Tell, along with the book’s soundtrack (which features his many hits as well as demos of his famous songs, covers of songs he contributed to other artists, and an unreleased rock tack from the 80s), follows his 2020 hit album Limitless. Reaching #2 on the iTunes pop album chart, the album featured the Billboard Top 15 single Another One Down, which was written by Richard his son Lucas, who also produced the track.Richard has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, starting with his self-titled debut which went to #8 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album spawned four Top 5 singles, including Hold on to the Nights and Don’t Mean Nothing, which earned him a GRAMMY® nomination for Best male Rock Vocal Performance. His follow-up, 1989′s Repeat Offender, was even more successful, hitting #1 and going quadruple-platinum with two #1 singles, Satisfied and Right Here Waiting. He has since made history as the only male artist whose first seven singles reached the Top 5 on Billboard charts.
Richard has also written on a #1 single in each of the last four decades, an accolade previously only reached by Michael Jackson. He has written with numerous artists, including To Where You Are, the first hit single from Josh Groban’s debut album and the NSYNC smash, This I Promise You. He went on to earn a 2004 Song of the Year GRAMMY® for co-authoring Luther Vandross’ Dance with My Father. Overall, he has scored 14 #1 singles (including Keith Urban’s #1 smash Long Hot Summer), both as a performer and as a songwriter/producer, revealing him a true multi-talented performer who continues to challenge himself and his fans.
In addition to being a musician, Richard is a committed philanthropist, supporting charitable causes like the American Cancer Society and the Ronald McDonald House Charities, Mercy For Animals, ASPCA, Humane Society, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and the charity closest to Richard’s heart, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, for which his produced events have raised over $4 million for research.
