Hugh Jackman sings Richard Marx, discusses ripped pants: Watch

Hugh Jackman is in the midst of a two-week concert run in San Francisco, and his musical coordinator, Richard Marx, has posted a video on YouTube that includes a clip of Jackman singing “Right Here Waiting.” As someone who saw Jackman receive 28 catcalls in one night onstage in Broadway’s The Boy From Oz (yes, I counted), I enjoy that we hear one during a musical interlude. The Jackman stuff starts at 2:40 in the video below. Jackman and Marx then joke around backstage. “Well, here we are backstage with the one and only Ryan Reynolds,” Marx says. They talk about how Jackman took his pants off onstage because they’d ripped. Where’s video of that?! They also plug “Ricardo’s” new album. 

P.S. Unrelated, but since I don’t know when I’ll get to write another Richard Marx post, did you all realize “Hold On To the Nights” was about cheating? That didn’t register with me until this year.

    I have to say that was an entertaining video and Hugh Jackman is HOT! Regarding Mandi’s P.S. about Hold Onto the Nights, I have never made that connection either in all these years. I didn’t believe it at first, but after listing to it on youtube, yup she is right. Kinda ruins the song a little, but I’d still sing along with it if it came on the radio.
