The Show at Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa Rancho Mirage presents Richard Marx on July 30, 2022.
Richard Marx’s soon-to-be-released memoir, “Stories To Tell,” begins a few months before the coronavirus pandemic; then transports us back to 1968 when he was five years old; takes 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. Richard’s Simon and Schuster-published 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.
Richard never considered writing his life story until he began performing solo acoustic shows in theaters beginning in 2010. “When I started playing solo shows, I knew going in that I would only have a piano, a guitar and my voice. I quickly realized I also needed stories,” he says. “I approach my live shows as if I were attending a concert by someone else. If all they’re going to do is ably replicate the music they’ve recorded, I can just stay home and listen to the recordings. I want to be entertained. I want to feel like I’m getting a glimpse into the PERSON I’m watching up there. Over time, my stories and banter with the audiences became crucially important to the point where I now feel that the ‘show’ is what happens in-between the songs. The best compliments I get are from people saying they felt like they hung out with me for two hours.”
