Ricky Nelson Remembered
A musical celebration of America’s first “Teen Idol”, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. Ricky Nelson emerged from “The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet” to establish himself as one of the most important rock artists and influential musicians of the last 50 years, selling over 140 million recordings.
The Nelson Family Legacy continues as Ricky’s twins Matthew and Gunnar Nelson present an interactive, multi-media rock & roll concert experience, taking the audience on a musical journey down memory lane. With a trio of guitar, bass, and drums, the Nelsons allow the audience to experience their father’s music the way their father performed it. Matthew and Gunnar (triple platinum recording artist Nelson) perform their dad’s greatest hits including “Poor Little Fool,” “Hello Mary Lou”, “Travelin’ Man”, “I’m Walking”, “Garden Party”, alongside their self-penned chart toppers “Love & Affection” and “After the Rain.” This show is truly a slice of Americana, appealing to multi-generational audiences.
