‘Ricky Nelson Remembered’ to perform in Morgan City Monday
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Nelson dynasty takes the stage in full force as Matthew and Gunnar Nelson share their first-hand view of the life and music of their father, Ricky Nelson, in “Ricky Nelson Remembered” at the Morgan City Municipal Auditorium in Morgan City at 7:30 p.m. Monday.
Tickets will be available at the door or by calling 985-385-2307. Adult season ticket price is $45 and students (K-12) price is just $10.
Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, aka “Nelson,” rose to the top of the popular music charts in the early 1990’s with three top-10 singles, four number-one MTV videos and five Top-40 Billboard hits.
In “Ricky Nelson Remembered” the brothers lend their soaring sibling harmonies to the songbook of their legendary rock ‘n roll father.
While the duo performs the hit songs from the Ricky Nelson songbook, such as “Hello, Mary Lou” and “Garden Party,” the show is also intended as a deeply intimate experience; the production features stories and multi-media imagery of life inside three generations of stardom, including remembrances of grandparents Ozzie and Harriet Nelson.
The Nelson’s continue to write, perform worldwide, including collaborations with Yusuf (Cat Stevens) and Paul McCartney, and have produced seven albums on their own Stone Canyon Records label.
