Last Chance to See Frankie Valli & Four Seasons: Minneapolis
No introduction is needed when comes to Frankie Valli & Four Seasons. They’ve racked up so many hits that have appeared in so many films, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who hasn’t fallen in love with one of their songs, even though the lead is in his 80s.
The real question is whether Valli and the rest of them can pull off a great concert after this many years. Dave Simpson expresses a resounding yes in this article:
“The legendary New Jersey singer is 84, yet pulls off a two-hour show with more than two dozen songs, many of them standards, delivering a joyous celebration of pop music at its sweetest and purest. Valli doesn’t need new material when his catalogue of smashes ranges from the doo-wop days to the disco era and – with the original Four Seasons long disbanded – a new, youthful band and harmony singers can render them to perfection. The hit Four Seasons musical Jersey Boys has given him a much younger audience, who respond to hits such as Rag Doll, Walk Like a Man, Sherry, Let’s Hang On and the rest with rapturous chants of, ‘There’s only one Frankie Valli.’”
