About the Event
Frankie Valli has wooed audiences for four decades. His incredible career as a solo artist and with The Four Seasons has produced 19 top ten hits and sold over 100 million records worldwide. Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and named longevity champ of the rock era by Billboard Magazine. Valli’s falsetto was the trademark of The Four Seasons’ distinctive musical style—the popular doo-wop of the 1950s infused with rhythm and blues influences that would come to define much of the 1960s. Their hits “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Candy Girl,” and “Rag Doll” are rock and roll classics. Valli scored solo hits with “You’re Gonna Hurt Yourself,” “Let’s Hang On,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.” And now their rags-to-rock-to-riches tale has been forever immortalized in the Broadway smash Jersey Boys. Don’t miss an unforgettable night of music with a rock and roll legend!
