Modest Mouse, Nelson add Fargo tour dates

Two shows reflecting different eras of rock will pull into Fargo in July.

Nelson, the singing and guitar-playing twin brothers Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, play a tribute to their father, the late 1950s and ’60s pop singer Ricky Nelson, on July 9 at the Fargo Theatre. The duo scored a No. 1 hit in 1990 with “(Can’t Live Without Your) Love and Affection.”

Tickets go on sale at noon April 30 for $25 or $35 the day of the show.

Modest Mouse, the alternative rock band fronted by enigmatic singer/

guitarist Isaac Brock, returns to The Venue at The Hub on July 13.

The group most recently played the space in March 2007, the night before the group released its last studio album, “We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank.” The group released a collection of outtakes, “No One’s First and You’re Next,” in 2009.

Tickets for the all-ages show go on sale at noon on Friday for $33.

Tickets for both shows are available at the location of the show, at the Tickets 300 kiosk, 300 Broadway, or www.jadepresents.com. Nelson tickets are also available at Atomic Coffee locations or (800) 514-3849. Modest Mouse tickets can be charged at (800) 511-1552.
