Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons

Friday, September 6 & Saturday, September 7  |  8 p.m.

 

Thanks to the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical about The Four Seasons, Frankie Valli has been enjoying a pop culture comeback. And we’re here for it. The original lead singer of the 1960s doo-wop quartet—and only original member still performing with the group—and his band bring the nostalgic tunes to the Blaisdell for two shows. Oh, what a night … or weekend.
