Ricky Nelson Remembered

“Ricky Nelson Remembered”

Ricky Nelson is the only artist to have a No. 1 song, No. 1 movie and No. 1 TV show in the same week. Life Magazine coined the phrase 'Teen Idol' after him, and he is credited with pioneering the country rock sound. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ricky Nelson's life and music touched millions; his twin sons, multi-platinum recording artists, Matthew & Gunnar Nelson, relive the music and memories in their multimedia event, Ricky Nelson Remembered.

Featuring hit songs like "Hello Mary Lou," "Poor Little Fool," "Travelin' Man," "I'm Walkin'," "I Gotta Feeling," "Teenage Idol," "Garden Party" and many more, RNR showcases his life with never-before-seen interviews from artists he influenced, including Paul McCartney and Chris Isaak. Matthew and Gunnar's musical event is heartfelt and full of laughter.

Opening for Ricky Nelson Remembered will be Cabin Fever Northwest - a delightful duo from Bellingham.
