Jam presents Damien Rice. Damien has just added four shows in the U.S. including one night at the Auditorium Theatre on Friday, December 1, which will be his first Chicago performance in eight years and his only Midwest performance in 2023. Damien Rice was born in Ireland, and his first album 'o' was recorded at home and self-released in Ireland. Numerous tours followed, along with two more albums '9' and 'My Favourite Faded Fantasy'. Having the unconventional tendency to prefer walking on stage with no setlist, Rice also prefers to travel by sailboat rather than by tour bus, and is planning a sailboat-tour in the Mediterranean in the summer of 2023. Having recently completed a sold-out tour in Europe, he is currently on tour in Australia with a string of dates across South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia & Hong Kong to follow in June. There is a 4 ticket limit per customer. Patrons who exceed the ticket limit may have any or all orders and tickets cancelled without notice. This includes orders associated with the same name, email address, credit card number or other information.
Richard Marx is celebrating more than 35 years as a recording artist - his 38th as a professional songwriter. 1984’s “What About Me,” released as a trio by Kenny Rogers, Kim Carnes and James Ingram was co-written by Richard and became not only his first song recorded by an artist, but his first number one as a writer. Richard Marx has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, starting with his self-titled debut which went to No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album spawned four Top 5 singles, including “Hold on to the Nights” and “Don’t Mean Nothing,” which earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. His follow-up, 1989’s Repeat Offender, was even more successful, hitting No. 1 and going quadruple-platinum with two No. 1 singles, “Satisfied” and “Right Here Waiting.” He has since made history as the only male artist whose first seven singles reached the Top 5 on the Billboard charts. Marx will be joined by special guest John Waite, the British born rock star who has been successfully writing, recording and performing some of the most listenable, enduring and appreciated popular music for more than 35 years.
