Richard Marx slams concertgoer

Richard Marx has ripped into a woman who had been talking loudly throughout his performance onstage in New York.

The Hazard singer halted the show with some choice words for her - and her parents.

"I'm genuinely curious who raised you,” Richard, 60, said, garnering applause from the rest of the audience, “to think that anything you could yell out was more important than what we were doing."

Richard, who is currently touring with fellow veteran singer Rick Springfield, went on to add, “learn some f**king manners, lady!"

His stage partner, 74, was right there with words of support.

“Do not p**s my friend off,” he joked.

“It’s kinda wild, that happens sometimes. I was (performing) in a place where there was a bar in the back… there was like, four people at the bar just having a chat away. I’m gonna come to your work and I’m gonna pee on your desk while you’re working!”
