Mohegan Sun Welcomes Back Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons

Concert slated for April 14th; Tickets go on sale November 17th

UNCASVILLE, CT (November 13, 2017) – American Pop icon and one of the top-selling bands in music history, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons bring their hits back to Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, April 14th at 8:00pm.

Tickets are $35.00 and go on sale Friday, November 17th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.

There’s something about Frankie Valli’s music that makes young people of every generation want to get up and dance. Amid the Disco era, the Seasons hit it big with “Who Loves You,” which reached #3 in 1975 and “December 1963 (Oh, What a Night),” a #1 record in 1976. On the other side of the Atlantic, “You’re Ready Now” and “The Night,” which didn’t do anything in the U.S., emerged from dance clubs in the north of England to become huge hits in Europe. Two decades later, in 1994, a dance club remix of “December 1963” climbed to #14 in the U.S. on Billboard Hot 100. In 2000, a French-language Rap version of “December 1963” went to #1 in Paris. And a few years ago—a remix of the Four Seasons’ 1967 hit “Beggin’” became the #1 Dance record in Britain.

Valli and the Four Seasons have influenced many other great recording artists. For example, from Barry Gibb: “Frankie Valli to me has become one of the hallmark voices of our generation. From the deepest emotions of his real voice to the power of his falsetto, he created a style that we all still strive to emulate.” From Billy Joel: “I wrote ‘Uptown Girl’ as the flip side to the story of ‘Rag Doll.’ I always loved that record.” And from Brian Wilson: “In the early 60s the Four Seasons were my favorite group. I thought they were fantastic. The voice blend was fantastic. The competition helped me to get cracking. It inspired me, because they made good music. I went to the piano thinking I could top their music.”

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today.
