Classic rock band is heading to the Rialto this November

August 16, 2019 (Joliet, IL) – Rialto Square Theatre announced the addition of classic rock band, Little River Band, to the fall schedule on Saturday, November 16th at 7:30 PM. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 23rd at 10 AM. For more information visit

The Eagles founding member, the late Glenn Frey, knew what he was saying when he dubbed Little River Band “the best singing band in the world.” Through the ‘70’s and ‘80’s, LRB enjoyed huge chart success with multiplatinum albums and chart topping hits like: “Reminiscing”, “Cool Change”, “Lonesome Loser”, “The Night Owls”, “Take It Easy On Me”, “Help Is on Its Way”, “Happy Anniversary”, “We Two”,  “Man On Your Mind”, “The Other Guy”, and It’s A Long Way There”.

Worldwide album, CD sales and digital downloads now exceed 30 million and LRB has set a record for having had Top 10 hits for 6 consecutive years. In fact, they were the very first band to achieve that remarkable status! According to BMI, “Reminiscing” has garnered rare status with over 5 million airplays on American radio, and “Lady” is close behind with over 4 million airplays.

Bassist/vocalist Wayne Nelson joined the band in 1980, and worked alongside founding members with some of the most distinctive harmonies and vocal abilities, creating the unique LRB sound. In 1981, Nelson was recognized by world-renowned Beatles producer, Sir George Martin, whom while producing ‘Time Exposure’, chose Nelson to record lead vocals on two of the band’s biggest hits, “The Night Owls” and “Take It Easy On Me.” Later that same year, guitarist extraordinaire Stephen Housden joined LRB bringing a rock element into the band’s sound and helped contribute to their string of Top 10 hits.  As band members departed, both Housden and Nelson worked together to bring LRB into the new millennium.

To date, lead singer/bassist Wayne Nelson has contributed his vocal and bass guitar talents on 22 Little River Band Albums/CD’s.  LRB continues to perform to sold out audiences, and Stephen Housden continues to write and participate in all things Little River Band.

In 2004 LRB was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association Hall of Fame at the 18th Annual ARIA Music Awards and in September 2015 the band was awarded Casino Entertainer of the Year at the G2E Gaming Expo in Las Vegas Nevada.
Turning the page brings us to the current lineup of Little River Band…

Keyboardist Chris Marion is a Dove Award winning producer. Chris is the creator of all the orchestral arrangements and charts on The Big Box. It is amazing to watch him play, sing, and conduct from his riser! Lead Guitarist Rich Herring is a highly skilled player, singer, and producer of many Nashville artists…not to mention a great songwriter. He and Wayne have co-produced every LRB project since he joined the band. Drummer Ryan Ricks has locked down the rhythm section, and rounds out the vocals with his incredible range. Great singing drummers are rare…and LRB is lucky to have Ryan as part of that all-important vocal blend. Nashville Guitarist Colin Whinnery plays rhythm and lead guitar, and shares lead vocal duties with Wayne. He brings a brand new voice and a fresh outlook to the rhythm section.

Early 2014 saw the release of Little River Band’s, ‘Cuts Like a Diamond,’ on Frontiers Records.  “What If You’re Wrong,” went to #1 and stayed there for 3 weeks says Jim Shoe of CLASSX Radio.  “Forever You, Forever Me,” and “You Dream, I’ll Drive,” both climbed into the station’s TOP 3. In November of 2016, LRB released, ‘The Hits…Revisited,’ on World Records –  a CD consisting of 9 re-recorded hits along with 2 new songs.  May of 2017 brought the release of ‘The Big Box’ –  a box set consisting of 6 disc’s featuring a DVD with live footage from their 40th Anniversary Tour.  It Easy On Me were hits in 5th and 6th y

Bringing their vocal and musical energy along with great arrangements to their timeless classic hits, each show creates new memories for the audience.  The band enjoys watching their fans fall in love with the songs all over again as they are swept up by the show’s powerful performance and the volume of hits from LRB’s history.

With 90 -100 dates scheduled for their 2019 tour, Little River Band is hotter than ever selling out shows and making music from coast to coast nationwide continuing their legacy of being “the best singing band in the world.”

Little River Band is:
Wayne Nelson:  Lead Vocals/Bass
Chris Marion:  Keyboards/Vocals
Rich Herring: Lead Guitar/Vocals
Ryan Ricks: Drums/Percussion/Vocals
Colin Whinnery: Guitar/Lead Vocals

Genii Magazine said “Masterful! – Breathtaking! – A Killer Finish!” The International Conjuror’s Magazine said “The Audience Gasped!” and “Just When You Think You’ve Seen It All…” The Philadelphia Daily News lauded “The Entire Family Will Be Charmed!”

Audiences will witness Five “The Best of the Best” Magicians together onstage presenting the Latest and Greatest Magic and Illusion as well as several New World-Premiere Illusion Acts Never Before Seen On Any Stage Anywhere On Earth!

ABRACADABRA Live on Tour features:

Anti-Conjuror Dan Sperry
Hailed as the most in-demand and “Relevant Modern Illusionist of This Generation,” Dan Sperry has starred on Broadway, on countless Network TV shows and is one of the most viral entities to ever plague the Internet! One of the TOP 10 Most-Searched on YouTube, Mr. Sperry has been described as “Marilyn Manson Meets David Copperfield” … ““Totally Icky Yet Totally Awesome!” … “A Young Alice Cooper of Magic!” and “We have seen the Future of Magic and it is DAN SPERRY!” Dan Sperry presents magic for people who love magic shows but an even better show for people who hate magic shows!

Grand Illusionist Brett Daniels
Co-Creator and original Front Man of “The Illusionists” before it came to America, US Audiences will have a first-look at new and exciting illusions created by the “World-Champion Magician” who has been awarded “Magician of the Year,” “Entertainer of the Year,” “Best Of The Best Grand Illusionist,” “Illusionist Of The Millennium” as well as star of NBC TV Specials “The World’s Greatest Magic,” NBC’s Houdini- Unlocking The Secrets” and ABC’s “Champions of Magic.” Having also Co-Produced Criss Angels’ SUPERNATURALISTS, Brett promises that ABRACADABRA is the Crown Jewel of all that has come before!

Erika Weiss
Taking her name from the King of Handcuffs – Harry Houdini (1874-1926) who was born Erik Weiss and grew up in Appleton, Wisconsin, Erika is rejuvenating a once-traditional art form and bringing it to a new generation. Reimagining the typical “restraints” (pun intended) of the typical male escape artist, Erika blends tradition and modern theatrics in a manner that hasn’t been experienced before. In ABRACADABRA, Erika is going to present a new act, “Lady in the Water” for the first time – anywhere. She has been training for this groundbreaking underwater endeavor tirelessly – in Wisconsin, just like Erik Weiss – Houdini – did 100 years ago. Hoping to make her namesake proud, Erika makes her headlining debut in ABRACADABRA presenting an emotionally jarring feat of mental, physical and psychological challenge in an original groundbreaking escape act that is far beyond what has ever before been performed, attempted — or even imagined!
Matthew Teague
“Mind-Blowing” is the only way to describe this young master of sleight of hand. Previously an underground artist sought out by high end corporate and casino clients, the public is about to understand what everyone’s talking about – “The Matthew Teague Magic Mind Blowing Experience” live onstage in ABRACADABRA!
From Serbia, this “Ghost” – known and whispered as a “Myth” – from those who know the magic underground, MACHIAVELLI is both a musical prodigy and a master illusionist. Magicians have searched for him for years – without success. Now, ABRACADABRA is proud to announce the FIRST PUBLIC PERFORMANCE of this rumored MASTER! Young and Old alike will be delighted by the inimitable talent and skills of MACHIAVELLI!
