"Richard Marx's World Tour 2011."

Venue: Arena of Stars, Genting Highlands, Malaysia
Date: 11.12.11
Time: 8.30-11.00pm

Yeap, went to Genting yesterday to watch Richard Marx's concert courtesy of ntv7. Thank You. (:

As we arrived at Genting,  it was extremely crowded & packed. We were informed that all the hotel rooms for that day were fully booked. wow. 

Not to mention, the fog on that night was very...umm...foggy. (above) :P 

Alright, I shall cut to the chase & head on to the concert. 

Before the appearance of Richard, a Malaysian local artist "Liyana" was invited for a guest performance. She sang a few of her own songs. 

After she ended her performance, the crowd was anxiously awaiting for Richard Marx's performance. (for quite a long time.) 

Alas, he arrived with his first song : Endless Summer Nights.

Followed by :
  • Take This Heart
  • Keep Coming Back
  • To Where You Are
  • Until I Find You Again

And there is this song called "Hazard". 
"There is a funny story behind this song" said Richard.

Ever since he was a boy, he loved reading murder mystery books.
Due to his interest in these kind of stories, he then wrote a song based on these murder stories.

After he wrote & recorded this song, he said " This is the most stupid song I've ever written".
Then his wife insisted that she wanted to listen to it and after she listened, she said that this song will be a hit.
Richard said that this song is the worst song & so he wants to prove his wife wrong in  this situation, he sent it to the radio station.

Ironically, that song top the list & was a hit in 13 countries. And that song is "Hazard".

After this, he sang a few other songs like:
  • When You Love Me
  • Hold On To The Nights
  • Now & Forever 
  • Angelia
  • Should've Known Better
He also sang this song called "Save Me" which he wrote and played by his 3 sons on the piano, guitar & drums respectively. 

 "This I Promise You" which he sang together with Liyana on stage. 

And finally the last song he sang is...

Yeap, you guessed it. "Right Here Waiting For You". The long awaited song by the crowd.

As the time arrived, the concert ended & the crowd dispersed, satisfied.
