The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Happy Trails Theater is coming to Austin to present the Ron and Opal Erickson Show at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 19, at the Paramount Theatre.

All tickets are $12.

The Ericksons are a husband and wife singing duo who regularly perform at Branson, Mo. at the original Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Happy Trails Theater.

They offer a memory-filled evening including a video depicting a half century with Roy and Dale hosted by the show business and movie legends and their children.

There will be film clips of the couple’s movies, too.

The Ericksons call it their “Memory Tour” and there is sure to be no short supply of those from the legendary pair of performers.

Old-time rock music legends

The Paramount Theatre will host a Summer Rock Hit Makers’ Party, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 12.

Some of the favorite 1969s rockers, including original members of DJ and the Runaways and Crow, including Dave Wagner, lead singer of the band, will entertain during a trip down rock music’s memory lane.
