FRANKIE VALLI & THE FOUR SEASONS
Oh, what a story! Frankie Valli, who came to fame in 1962 as the lead singer of the Four Seasons, is hotter than ever in the 21st century.
Thanks to the volcanic success of the Tony-winning musical JERSEY BOYS* with such classic songs as “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Rag Doll,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” are all the rage all over again. As the play enters its third sold-out year on Broadway, and two touring companies of Jersey Boys travel around the U.S., the real Frankie Valli is packing concert halls coast to coast, from the Rose Theater, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, to L.A.’s Kodak Theater, home of the Academy Awards.
Now Frankie salutes the decade that made him a star with his first new studio album in 15 years. But please don’t say that Frankie is back. The truth is, he never went away! Sure, the majority of the 71 chart hits of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (including 40 in the Top 40, 19 in the Top 10 and eight No. 1’s) came during the 1960s, but the music didn’t just disappear. Frankie and the Seasons have influenced many other great recording artists along the way.
Jersey Boys the Musical tells the true life story of four boys from the wrong side of the tracks who wrote their own songs, invented their own unique sound, and sold 100 million records worldwide.
There’s something about Frankie’s music that makes young people of every generation want to get up and dance.
