Author Rhonda Nelson And Husband Wayne Nelson (Little River Band) Announce Tour

NASHVILLE (Oct. 3) -- Author Rhonda Nelson will be joined by her husband, Little River Band’s lead singer Wayne Nelson, to promote her beautiful new book, A Different Life, with an acoustic tour in December. The Nelsons, who celebrated their 17th wedding anniversary on October 1, will be joined on the tour by two members of Little River Band, Greg Hind and Chris Marion. Rhonda will share behind-the-scenes stories from A Different Life in between Little River Band hits such as “Cool Change,” “Lady,” and “Reminiscing.” The set list will also feature songs from the group’s holiday album, A Little River Band Christmas. The presentation will be similar to a songwriter’s night, with Wayne and Rhonda providing a glimpse about what life on the road is really like.

It will be a busy month, as the tour will include two Christmas performances with the full lineup of Little River Band. These dates include December 2 in Delray Beach, Florida, where the Nelsons live, as well as December 12 in Nashville, which is Rhonda’s hometown. These performances are part of the Little River Band’s annual Carols by Candlelight performances, which are inspired by a holiday tradition in Australia. Both concerts will benefit children’s organizations in their respective cities. In addition, the last book event on the tour will visit Wayne’s hometown of Chillicothe, Illinois, on December 15.

In each book event market, Rhonda, Wayne and Little River Band members will stay after the show for autographs and photos.
