(CelebrityAccess News Service) – Ricky Nelson, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,
will be officially inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will take place when Ricky's sons, Gunnar and Matthew, appear live on stage October 11, in Memphis, TN, at the world famous Overton Park Shell outdoor theater. The Nelsons will be performing a tribute set to their father by singing Ricky's greatest hits. The event is Rockabilly Hall of Fame's first in a series of benefit shows.
The "Shell" is located at 1928 Poplar Ave. in Memphis, TN, in Overton Park. Its stage has great historic significance to rockabilly music and early rock 'n' roll fans: it is where Elvis Presley first performed in Memphis in 1954.
