Singer Richard Marx performs in the next show in the Newport Beach Summer Concert Series

Pop singer Richard Marx knows what some of you are thinking.

The musician best known for such late-’80s ballads as “Right Here Waiting” and “Hold On to the Nights” can stir up nostalgic thoughts, both pleasant and painful, he says.

Marx, who will turn 54 on Sept.16, will be the featured star Sept. 22 at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach’s annual Summer Concert Series, where he’ll perform songs from his nearly three-decade career that includes highlights like selling more than 30 million albums worldwide and achieving Billboard Top 5 single hits.
