Throwback Thursday: Visits from famous faces

[anvplayer video=”5171387″ station=”998130″]

Boy band Big Time Rush visited Duluth earlier this week, but they are far from the only famous faces that have dropped by the Zenith City.

With a TV show and real-life band, Big Time Rush feels reminiscent of The Monkees. And Davy Jones from that show stopped in Duluth in February 2009. He sang with the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra. Jones died in 2012.

In 2022, musician Chuck Leavell was here filming for a TV show, “America’s Forests with Chuck Leavell.” He was the keyboardist for the Rolling Stones. He returns to Duluth Thursday night to celebrate the first-ever episode filmed in Minnesota.

You can watch the episode on his website.
