“RICKY NELSON REMEMBERED” AT LCCC’S STOCKER ARTS CENTER

More than 25 years ago, singing sensation Ricky Nelson was killed in a plane crash. Through his sons, his musical legacy lives on with the tribute concert “Ricky Nelson Remembered.”
Matthew and Gunnar Nelson will star in the show at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, November 8 at Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Arts Center.

Tickets are $36 for orchestra; $29 for mezzanine; and $10 for LCCC students and youth 18 and under. Valet parking is available for this show for just $5 per car. Tickets for the performance and valet parking can be ordered online at http://www.stockerartscenter.com/, or by calling the Stocker Arts Center box office at (440) 366-4040 from 12-6 p.m., Monday through Friday and 90 minutes before curtain time. Tickets are also available at the box office, located in the lobby of the Stocker Arts Center.

Ricky Nelson was America’s first TV heartthrob. The Nelson family achieved immortality with “The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet,” the longest-running sitcom in television history. Ricky Nelson emerged from the series and established himself as one of the most important rock artists of the 50s, 60s and 70s. A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, Ricky is the only artist in history to have a number one TV show, movie, and song all in the same week.

Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, Ricky’s twin sons, are triple platinum recording artists in their own right. “After the Rain” was the hit debut album by Nelson, the band Matthew and Gunnar led in the early 1990s. They zoomed to number one with “(I Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection,” which landed the Nelson family in the Guinness Book of World Records as the only family to reach number one record status in three successive generations.

The world still maintains its fascination with the Nelson family. A&E’s “Nelson Family Biography” episode is still the top-rated “Biography” installment ever. “Ricky Nelson Remembered” is a multi-media concert experience which includes all of Ricky Nelson’s biggest hits – “Garden Party,” “Travelin’ Man,” “Hello Mary Lou,” “Lonesome Town,” “Fools Rush In,” “It’s Late,”  “Believe What You Say” and many more.
