Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons set for April 2017 UK tour

60s pop band to play dates in Edinburgh, London, Manchester and more

Who remembers Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons? Yes, that's right, the band behind such songs as 'Walk like a Man' and 'Big Girls Don't Cry' (nope, not gonna dissect the wider gender implications there, nope, not at all). They also released the karaoke go-tos, 'Working My Way Back To You', 'Sheri', and 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You'.

They were pretty famous in the 1960s and 70s, mostly for those matching suits, but many keen theatregoers will also know them from Jersey Boys: the Tony-winning musical based on the life and times of the band.

Apparently not content with simply being a plot trope in musical theatre, Frankie and the lads are heading out on a tour of the UK this April, with dates in key cities such as Edinburgh, London and Manchester. Tickets go on sale Thu 8 Sep at 7pm.

Thu 20 Apr – Birmingham Genting Arena
Fri 21 Apr – Bournemouth BIC
Sun 23 Apr – London The O2
