The Congress Theatre, Eastbourne is once again going to resonate with the unmistakable and unmissable sound of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons when the award-winning production, Let’s Hang On, returns to the town’s premiere theatre for one night only tonight (17 July).
This hugely acclaimed five star show takes audiences on a musical journey through the prolific career of one of the most successful bands of all time. A band who sold over 150 million records, had 20 top ten singles and 8 number 1’s!
From the beginning in the early 50’s when Frankie first joined the group, the show takes you through hits such as December ’63 (Oh What A Night!), Beggin’, Sherry, Bye Bye Baby, Walk Like A Man, Grease, Rag Doll, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Working My Way Back To You, Big Girls Don’t Cry, and many more, climaxing with a spectacular finale of, of course, Let’s Hang On!
Having performed at the Royal Albert Hall for Frankie Valli himself, Let’s Hang On are the most authentic touring act on the circuit and continue to prove they’re in a class of their own with even Frankie Valli himself exclaiming ‘You guys are dynamite!’.
Dino Buttarazzi, Martin Peat, Scott Walker, Jay Harrison and Stephen James (who scales the falsetto heights previously set by Frankie Valli with remarkable ease,) truly capture the original magic of the Four Seasons. The atmosphere created is not only from their music but also their own unique sound, nostalgic mood and electric stage presence.
It’s easy to frequently name drop the big chart stars of the 60’s such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys but as their repertoire proves, The Four Seasons are still held in very high regard with countless hits and a multitude of songs used in hit films such as Grease, Dirty Dancing, The Deer Hunter and of course Jersey Boys.
Let’s Hang On is at the Congress Theatre, Eastbourne on Sunday 17 July, 7.30pm, tickets priced from £20.50 - £24.50, with concessions available, to book or for more information call the box office on 01323 412000 or online.
