GOSSIP & RUMORS: Richard Marx clashes with obnoxious fan during NY concert with Rick Springfield

He will be ‘right here waiting’ to roast ‘you.’

Pop rock singer Richard Marx tore into an unruly concertgoer who spoke loudly during one of his songs in Port Chester, NY on Jan. 21, telling the woman to “learn some f—king manners.”

Marx, 60, was in the middle of performing his hit 1989 song “Angelia,” alongside fellow rocker Rick Springfield as part of their acoustic tour when the rude heckler threw the singer off guard, video obtained by TMZ showed.

The “Right Here Waiting” hitmaker finished the song while the woman continued to chat loudly in the background, noticeably irritating other concertgoers.

“I’m genuinely curious who raised you to think that anything you could yell out was more important than what we were doing?” Marx asked the woman in front of the entire crowd.

“Learn some f—ing manners, lady!”

Springfield, 74, was happy to have his fellow musicians back, chiming in to let Marx know he’s dealt with rude audience members in the past.

“Kind of wild that happens sometimes,” the “Jessie’s Girl” singer said.

“I was in a place where there was a bar in the back, and I was doing ‘My Father’s Chair’ and there was like four people at the bar just having a chat.”

Springfield had one final message for the rowdy fan to ease the tensions in the room and double down on his support for the “Don’t Mean Nothing” singer.

“I’m going to come into your work, and I’m going to pee on your desk while you’re working,” the “Love Somebody” singer said before changing directions.

“Let’s get back to the music here,” Springfield said as the video ended.

Marx and Springfield’s gig at Capitol Theatre, which holds up to 1,800 people, was their final stop in NY for their quick, ten-concert ‘An Acoustic Evening’ tour that spanned from Jan. 11-27.

A Chicago native, Marx has sold over 30 million albums in his nearly decades-long career, according to the Grammy Museum.

Marx went quadruple platinum in 1989 with two #1 singles, “Satisfied” and “Right Here Waiting,” from his second album, “Repeat Offender.”

Throughout his lengthy career, Marx has been nominated for five Grammy’s.

In 2003, he won the Grammy for Song of the Year for “Dance with My Father,” which he shared with R&B singer and songwriter Luther Vandross.
