WILKES-BARRE, PA (May 15, 2017) – Chicago native performer, songwriter and producer, Richard Marx, will be bringing his pop – rock hits to stage at the Keystone Grand Ballroom on Friday, July 7th, 2017 at 8:00pm. Marx has achieved countless highlights over his three decade long career, selling more than 30 million albums worldwide and producing four top five singles, including “Hold on to the Nights”, and “Don’t Mean Nothing”.

Tickets start at $29.00 and will go on sale on Friday, May 19th through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster customers may purchase tickets by logging on to ticketmaster.com or calling Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number at 1.800.745.3000. Tickets will also be available for purchase, free of service fees, at the Mohegan Sun Pocono Box Office.

Marx’s second career highlight occurred when Repeat Offender hit #1 and went quadruple – platinum.  After, the Rush Street album brought two #1 hits and the Paid Vacation album had a #1 hit going platinum, triumphing Marx’s seven year sequence of top hits.   Marx didn’t stop there; he became a songwriter and producer obtaining fourteen #1 singles, written chart hits for artists such as N’SYNC, Keith Urban, Josh Groban and more, and ranked on Billboard’s “Greatest of All Time Hot 100 Artists”. 

Releasing his eighth album, Beautiful Goodbye in 2014, Marx exposed all new material fans found unique compared to past albums.  He deliberately set out to create a stimulating album, “The songs on this record were influenced greatly by everyone from Sade to Bebel Gilberto to various EDM artists to even Chopin. I’m known for romantic music in the past, but this music I wrote is all more sensual and ethereal, and the lyrics are more adventurous than I’ve been willing to go in the past” states Marx. 

As Marx’s career began, he immediately became involved with many charitable organizations throughout his career.  He has performed benefit concerts for organizations including Children of the Night, TJ Martell Foundation, Toys for Tots, Make-A-Wish Foundation, the American Cancer Society, Best Buddies and the Special Olympics.  In 1987 he donated the royalties from his hit single “Should’ve Known Better” to build a room at the NYU Medical Center for pediatric cancer patients.  Marx’s hosts an annual all-star benefit concert for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, raising more than $4 million for research to cure the disease.
