Will become 'Here waiting' to roast 'You.'
Pop-rock singer Richard Marx attacked an unruly attendee who spoke loudly during one of his songs in Port Chester, New York on January 21, telling the woman to “learn some fucking manners.”
Marks, 60, was in the middle of performing his 1989 hit “Angelia”, alongside fellow rocker Rick Springfield as part of their acoustic tour when the rude heckler caught the singer off guard, as he obtained a video. TMZ show up.
The “Right Here Waiting” hitmaker finished the song while the woman continued to chat loudly in the background, noticeably angering other concertgoers.
“I'm really curious who raised you to believe that anything you could shout was more important than what we were doing?” Marx asked the woman in front of the whole crowd.
“Learn some damn manners, lady!”
Springfield, 74, was happy to have his fellow musicians back, telling Marks he had dealt with rude audiences in the past.
“That's the kind of brutality that happens sometimes,” the “Jessie's Girl” singer said.
“I was at a place where there was a bar in the back, and I was doing 'My Father's Chair' and there were four people in the bar just having a conversation.”
Springfield had one final message for the rowdy fan to ease tensions in the room and double down on his support for the “It Don't Mean a Thing” singer.
“I'm going to come to your work, and I'm going to pee on your desk while you're working,” the “Love Somebody” singer said before changing directions.
“Let's get back to the music here,” Springfield said as the video ended.
Marks and Springfield's concert at the Capitol Theatre, which seats up to 1,800 people, was their final New York stop on their whirlwind ten-concert “An Acoustic Evening” tour that ran from January 11 to 27.
Marx, a Chicago native, sold more than 30 million albums during his nearly decades-long career, according to Grammy Museum.
Marx went quadruple platinum in 1989 with the singles “Satisfied” and “Right Here Waiting” from his second album, Repeat Offender.
Throughout his long career, Marx has been nominated for five Grammy Awards.
In 2003, he It won a Grammy Award for Song of the Year For the song “Dance with My Father”, which he shared with R&B singer-songwriter Luther Vandross.
