Tropical Storm Irene Derails Richard Marx Benefit

SCHENECTADY (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Organizers have been forced to reschedule an upcoming Richard Marx benefit concert that was originally planned for Sept. 29 at Schenectady County Community College (SCCC), citing flooding for poor ticket sales.

As this was to be a fundraiser for SCCC's new Music Building, concert planners in consultation with Marx’s team have decided to postpone the concert to ensure the opportunity for maximum support.

Organizers said that flooding from Tropical Storm Irene left the school closed for two weeks, impacting both ticket sales and hindering promotional efforts for the show.

Marx is a singe-songwriter with a string of hit singles from the 1980s and 1990s including "Endless Summer Nights", "Right Here Waiting", "Now and Forever." He was the first solo artist to have his first seven singles hit the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

Tickets can be refunded online at visiting or by calling 346-6204. As of yet, there has been no date set for a makeup show. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
