Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons come to The Civic Center of Greater Des Moines (221 Walnut Street) on October 28. Showtime is set for 7:30 pm, and tickets range in price from $35 to $156.75. Tickets can be purchased through the Civic Center box office or online at Ticketmaster.com.
Music legend Frankie Valli is known for his 3-and-a-half octave vocal range and his 39 Top 40 hits. Valli hit #1 with “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Walk Like a Man”, “Rag Doll”, “December 1963 (Oh, What a Night)”, “My Eyes Adored You”, and “Grease”. Most of Valli’s success came with his backup band, The Four Seasons. The group has sold over 100 million albums, and they have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (in 1990) and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame (in 1999). The band’s rollercoaster ride to fame and fortune is told in the smash-hit musical “Jersey Boys”, which has won 6 Tony Awards.
With over six decades of music to pull from, this should be a spectacular show. Oh, what a night, indeed!
