Richard Marx Postpones Morristown Show Due To Omicron Surge

MORRIS COUNTY — Although New Jersey has shown signs of progress from the worst of the omicron wave, an artist slated to perform at the Mayo Performing Arts Center postponed shows because of the variant. Richard Marx’s February 22 show has been postponed to November 2 after the Grammy Award winner decided to push back his February concerts.

The Mayo Performing Arts Center will honor all tickets on the November date. People can contact the MPAC box office with any questions.

Marx tweeted the following Tuesday: “My friends: Due to the recent surge of Omicron and for the safety of my fans, the February shows have been rescheduled for this fall. All purchased tickets will be honored.

MPAC has been able to run most shows during the omicron wave, but the Morristown theater practices several precautions. The venue joined dozens of theaters in New Jersey last summer for the “Opening Night, Opening Right” safety campaign, which includes certain requirements for vaccination or negative testing among audience members.

All patrons 12 and older attending a performance must show proof of full vaccination or a recent negative test — a PCR or rapid antigen test administered by a medical professional or pharmacy. Click here to read complete MPAC guidelines.
