Richard Marx Announces Special Guests For All Headline Shows + Tour Kicks Off

Multi-talented US singer/song writer and performer Richard Marx kicks off his Australian headline tour this Thursday in Perth followed by Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Melbourne - limited tickets remain for an evening with one of America’s greats!  Frontier Touring and Arena Touring are delighted to announce that Marx will be joined by special guests Chris Murphy (Perth), Abbey Stone (Adelaide & Melbourne), and Matt Cornell (Sydney, Brisbane & Gold Coast).

Chris Murphy is one of Western Australia’s most special performers. After catching the nation’s (and the judges’) eye in 2006 on Australia Idol, he went on to perform ‘Waltzing Matilda’ to a packed MCG at that year’s AFL Grand Final. He has since released four solo albums which include songs ‘You Won’t Change’ and ‘Maritime Jig’ and has supported numerous Australian icons; from John Farnham and Jimmy Barnes to Daryl Braithwaite and Mental As Anything. This year, Murphy takes on a new challenge in the cast of Queen and Ben Elton’s hit musical, We Will Rock You.

Abbey Stone has developed her unique blend of pop, soul, and rock while writing and recording abroad in New York, Nashville, LA, as well as her home country, Australia where she is currently working on her third EP in Melbourne. Stone’s resume is littered with touring highlights alongside Andy Grammer, Leo Sayer, 10CC, Renee Gayer plus many more. Soon Abbey Stone will add Richard Marx to her impressive list, supporting in both Adelaide and Melbourne. For a taste of what to expect at these upcoming performances, listen to lush singles ‘Love Myself’ and ‘Dear Lover’.

In Sydney, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast, Richard Marx will be joined by singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Matt Cornell. He has worked and toured with the likes of Richard Clapton, Shannon Noll, Jenny Morris, Damien Leith, Baby Animals and Adam Brand, as well as jumping on stage at SXSW and iconic venues like CBGB, The Roxy, and the Viper Room. One of Australian country’s best and brightest, Cornell is sure to entertain crowds around the nation with a number of tracks including ‘It’s Only Midnight’ and ‘Feels Like Yesterday’.

An icon in the industry, Richard Marx celebrates a 3 decade long career with 11 glorious albums. Having sold 30 million records worldwide and with five Grammy nominations under his belt Marx is renowned for his heartfelt ballads dusted with classic rock.

Hit singles from 1987’s self-titled debut, ‘Don’t Mean Nothing’‘Should’ve Known Better’‘Endless Summer’ and ‘Hold On To The Nights’, begun Marx’s renowned achievement for being the first solo artist to have their first seven singles in the top five of the Billboard 100. With a loyal following Down Under, Marx has enjoyed eight Top 40 Hits including classics ‘Right Here Waiting’ and ‘Hazard’, both of which reached #1 status in Australia.
