Grammy winning 80s legend Richard Marx angrily slammed a loud concertgoer on Friday night after hearing her screaming during one of his songs.

The star, best known for his global smash hit Right Here Waiting, was performing as a part of a double-headline show with Rick Springfield at the Flynn Theater in Burlington, Vermont when the incident took place.

While singing one of his songs, Marx paused his performance to try and hush a woman in the crowd.

In a video acquired by TMZ, the belidgerent fan can be heard yelling at full volume, completely overpowering Marx’s attempt to subdue her.

Marx went on to finish the song while the woman continued being loud and obnoxious, and as a result, he decided to confront her.

“I’m genuinely curious who raised you to think that anything you could yell out was more important than what we were doing,” ranted the star. “Learn some fucking manners, lady!”

Springfield, who was also on stage, also leapt to his co-star’s defence: “Kind of wild that happens sometimes. 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.”

The singer then joked: “I’m going to come into your work and I’m going to pee on your desk while you’re working.”

Marx and Springfield’s gig at was their final stop in NY for their quick, ten-concert An Acoustic Evening tour that ran from January 11 to January 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.
