Frankie Valli Returns to Star of the Desert Arena in Primm Tomorrow Night!

July 30th, 2010

Frankie ValliFrankie Valli and The Four Seasons are appearing tomorrow night at the Star of the Desert Arena in Primm Nevada. Corey Levitan recently spoke with Valli by phone about his upcoming show and the success of JERSEY BOYS in Vegas.

“I don’t feel as though I’m competing,” says Valli, 76. “You go see the play and you learn about the life, and the reality is that when you go to see the real thing, you’re seeing the real thing — not somebody imitating him.”

“Every one of those songs has been good for me,” says Valli, who plans to perform a good chunk of them in Primm with his group — none of whom are original Four Seasons members.

Valli, a part owner of “Jersey Boys,” doesn’t consider it a production show.

“My show is a Broadway play and there’s a big difference,” he says. “It’s the story of a man’s life and the people he was with and what they went through to become successful.

“Whenever I get a chance to, I go by to see the show,” he says. “I think this kid, Rick Faugno, is an incredible performer. I think he’s good enough to have success of his own.”

  1. I am soooo excited…. I going to see Jersey Boys in March at Miller Auditorium in Kalamazoo, MI. and then I just bought tickets to see you on my birthday in May at Miller Auditorium as well.

    I listen to my Jersey Boys CD all the time at work. It makes those days that are dragging by go faster I can’t wait to see the live production.
