Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 17, 2008
Matthew and Gunnar Nelson announce they will help celebrate the music of the '60s and '70s this Spring when they headline the 2008 Flower Power Concert series at EPCOT® in Lake Buena Vista, Florida April 1, 2, 3.
Matthew Nelson and Gunnar Nelson are the identical twin sons of Rock'n'Roll Legend Ricky Nelson, of rock group NELSON whose pop/rock #1 hits include "(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection", "After the Rain", and "More Than Ever". The multi platinum recording artists will be performing at the EPCOT® International Flower & Garden Festival / Flower Power Concert Series for the sixth year in a row. The concert series features popular music from the '60s and '70s. The Nelsons' shows feature a tribute to their late father's popular music including Ricky Nelson's famous hits such as (appropriately), "Garden Party".
"It's unbelievable to think we've been coming to EPCOT and the Flower Power series for over five years now," enthuses Gunnar Nelson. "It's incredible fun and we look forward to connecting with our friends and fans each year in Florida."
Matthew Nelson agrees, "With three shows a night, we get to really have fun mixing up the hits for the fans. Plus, we love performing our Pop's music, like 'Garden Party' because it makes us feel closer to him, and the theme park guests really enjoy it."
When Matthew and Gunnar, the twin grandsons of TV's Ozzie & Harriet Nelson, scored the #1 billboard hit, "Love and Affection", it landed the Nelson family in the Guinness Book of World Records as the only family in entertainment with 3 successive generations of #1 music hits.
VH1 recently ranked "Love and Affection" among the "100 Greatest Songs of the 90s".
Matthew & Gunnar Nelson will perform Tuesday, April 1 thru Thursday, April 3 in the open air America Gardens Theatre at EPCOT® with three shows nightly at 5:45pm, 7pm & 8:15pm featuring songs of Ricky Nelson. Admission to the park includes the concert.
