Legendary Jersey Boys singer becomes 27th performer to receive Mohegan Sun’s Walk of Fame star!Mohegan Sun awards Frankie Valli Arena honor

UNCASVILLE, CT (November 4, 2014) — Mohegan Sun is pleased to announce that Frankie Valli was honored yesterday with a Walk of Fame award. Taking place on the afternoon before his show on Sunday, November 2nd, the legendary singer now joins an elite list of entertainers who have stars lining the forecourt of the Mohegan Sun Box Office.   Accepting the honor before a big crowd of fans, Valli said “when they told me I was going to be awarded this Walk of Fame I was very grateful, especially as it’s coming from one of my favorite facilities ever.”

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 No. 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 the 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.

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today. It has won “Casino of The Year” at the Country Music Awards in 2008 & 2010 and in 2013, was voted “Arena Of The Year” at the G2E Global Gaming Conference in Las Vegas. Also in 2013, Mohegan Sun won “Casino of The Year” in 2 categories at the Academy of Country Music Awards. For more information on concerts and other great events visit Mohegan Sun.
