The original Jersey Boy himself, Frankie Valli is a true American legend. His incredible career with the Four Seasons, as well as his solo success, has spawned countless hit singles with unforgettable tunes like Sherry, Walk Like A Man, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Rag Doll, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Let’s Hang On, My Eyes Adored You, and of course, Grease. His songs have been omnipresent in other iconic movies such as The Deer Hunter, Dirty Dancing, Mrs. Doubtfire, Conspiracy Theory and The Wanderers. As many as 200 artists have done cover versions of Frankie’s Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, from Nancy Wilson’s jazz treatment to Lauryn Hill’s hip-hop makeover.
Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons have sold over 100 million records. They continue to tour worldwide to packed houses, receiving nightly standing ovations from thrilled fans of multiple generations. Valli’s long-lasting career has led to the overwhelming success of the Broadway musical Jersey Boys, which chronicles Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons’ incredible career and features all of their greatest hits. The Jersey Boys juggernaut has now been seen by over 18 million people worldwide and has won four Tony Awards including Best Musical (2006). There have been productions of the show on London’s West End, Las Vegas, Chicago, Toronto, Melbourne, Singapore, Japan, Dubai, China and elsewhere. The musical also tours North America. It is the 15th longest-running show in Broadway history, having played over 3,250 performances and passing Fiddler on the Roof, Hello Dolly!, The Producers, Hairspray, My Fair Lady and Oklahoma.
In 2014, Frankie Valli’s life story was featured once again… this time in the film adaptation of Jersey Boys, directed by Clint Eastwood. Valli also returned to acting in Rob Reiner’s romantic comedy, And So It Goes (2014), which starred Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton. Frankie appeared on Hawaii Five-0 and his mega hit Big Girls Don’t Cry was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2015. Frankie also participated in the AMC series, The Making of the Mob. In 2016, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons appeared on Broadway in a limited engagement at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.
Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons are on the road again (including two nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall), and their return to Montreal is long overdue!
