Legendary crooner Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons will bring a little taste of America to Israel on July 4, playing their first-ever show in Tel Aviv on Independence Day.
Known as the original “Jersey boys,” on whom the Broadway show and 2014 film by the same name were based, Valli and the Four Seasons are known for their 1960s songs such as “Big Girls Don’t Cry, “Sherry” and “Walk Like a Man.”
Valli, now 83, has been singing since the 1950s, but found his groove with the Four Seasons, whom he joined in the 1960s as the lead singer, bringing his trademark falsetto that marked all their songs.
The group has sold more than 175 million albums, and Valli had a solo career as well, including a star turn as the lead voice for the theme song “Grease,” used in the 1978 film of the same name, with words by Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees.
Tickets for the concert at Tel Aviv’s Menora Mivtachim arena start at NIS 205, and are available through Eventim.
