Tickets on Sale Tomorrow for Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons at NJPAC
New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Spend an evening with American pop icon and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Frankie Valli when he brings an evening of his classic hits: "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like a Man," "Can't Take My Eyes Off You," "Rag Doll," "My Eyes Adored You," and many more.
Oh, what a story. Frankie Valli, a Newarker 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, which chronicles the life and times of Frankie and his legendary group, their classic songs are all the rage all over again.
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. 1s) came during the 1960s, but the music didn't just disappear He has toured almost continuously since 1962, and his songs have been omnipresent in such movies as The Deer Hunter, Dirty Dancing and Mrs. Doubtfire. As many as 200 artists have done cover versions of Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off You," from Nancy Wilson's jazz treatment to Lauryn Hill's hip-hop makeover.
Throughout his incredible career, Valli has sold well over 100 million records worldwide. One of the most distinctive voices in all of American music, his dazzling falsetto has become the stuff of rock'n'roll legend. For over five decades now, Valli and his group have been a top concert draw on stages coast-to-coast and around the world, thanks to the constant radio circulation of his songs as well as new re-mixes that find their way onto today's charts.
