Christmas with the Nelsons coming to Federal Way Nov. 23

The Federal Way Performing Arts and Events Center brings Christmas to the city.

“Christmas with the Nelsons” tells the story of three family Christmases in the lives of America’s favorite family.

The show begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 at the Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center, 31510 Pete von Reichbauer Way S.

This heart-warming multi-media live concert experience stars the third generation of No. 1 Nelson Family hitmakers, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson. A genuine blend of Everly Brothers-style harmonies and Smothers Brothers-style comedy, multi-platinum recording artists Matthew and Gunnar have been thrilling sellout audiences world-wide for the past decade with their high-integrity Ricky Nelson Remembered show and they’ve got a new gift for you to open.

Not merely a rock concert with a few holiday songs thrown in, “Christmas with the Nelsons” delivers Christmas classics the Nelson family way. Interweaving quick humor, soaring sibling vocals, and state of the art big screen video, Matthew and Gunnar’s completely new show will take you on a sleigh ride through time.

From the holly jolly 50s when their father Ricky was a little boy intent on duct-taping antlers on the family cat to the 70’s when Santa Claus came to town delivering Schwinns for the Twins in the era before bike helmets (that explains a lot) to Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree today with the newest generation of Nelson Family kids who prove that yes, we did in fact turn out to be just like our parents after all.

This is the Christmas show all ages of girls and boys have been waiting for. All new set of classic Christmas songs and Matthew and Gunnar Nelson at their very best. The entire Nelson family invites you to celebrate Christmas with the Nelsons.
