TERRE HAUTE —
Special to the Tribune-Star
“Ricky Nelson Remembered” will celebrate the life and memorable hits of “teen idol” Ricky Nelson on Nov. 9 in Indiana State University’s Tilson Auditorium.
Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, Ricky Nelson’s identical twin sons, have developed a performance that honors their father’s unique impact on the world of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
“Ricky Nelson Remembered” stars the twin sons of the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Famer and grandsons of ’50s TV icons Ozzie and Harriet Nelson.
When the Nelsons hit No. 1 on the Billboard with their self-penned No. 1 mega hit “(Can’t Live Without Your) Love & Affection” it put the Nelson family in the Guinness Book of Worlds as the only family in entertainment history with three generations of No. 1 hitmakers.
With their band, the Nelsons have five Top 40 Billboard hits, four No. 1 MTV videos and have sold more than 6.5 million albums worldwide.
“Ricky Nelson Remembered” is a multi-media entertainment event featuring the live music of Ricky Nelson’s hit songs (including “Hello Mary Lou,” “Travelin’ Man,” “Garden Party”) and includes never before seen big screen video footage of the Nelson family with interviews from celebrities influenced by Ricky Nelson.
Indiana State University along with First Financial Bank presents “Ricky Nelson Remembered” as part of the Indiana State University Performing Arts Series. Admission is $16 for adults and $10 for youth; ISU staff/faculty: $14; ISU students: free.
