The Arts Council of Central Louisiana is pleased to present Ricky Nelson Remembered on Friday, January 25th at 7:00pm at the Coughlin-Saunders Performing Arts Center, located at 1202 Third Street in Alexandria.
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’ for 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, and now his twin sons, multi-platinum recording artists, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, relive the music and memories in their multi-media 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, this performance showcases Ricky’s 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 great memories.
