American rock star Richard Marx, who gained international attention for his heroic deed in subduing a drunken rampage by an unruly passenger aboard a Korean Air flight, will hold a three-day concert tour in South Korea in June.
The "Emperor of ballad rock" will start his three-city tour on June 2 of Seoul, Incheon and Busan, tour organizers said Tuesday. He will visit South Korea next month to take part in promotions for his concert tour.
The 53-year-old was aboard a Korean Air flight en route from Vietnam to South Korea on December 20, 2016, when a soaker went crazy, beating other passengers and cabin crews for about two hours. The drunken man was eventually overpowered by a group of male passengers who ran out of their patience and Marx outshined for taking a vital role in controlling the man.
The incident gained international attention after Marx and his wife uploaded a set of critical photographs and videos onto their Facebook and Instagram.
