Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
One of the most outstandingly successful groups in pop history, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons were always known for their extraordinary live performances. This live concert was filmed in Atlantic City during their 1992 US tour. Including many of their most popular and widely acclaimed hits, the program is a fitting tribute to a remarkable group. Inducted into both the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, Frankie Valli has scored 39 Top 40 hits in the course of his illustrious career.
In 2005, the Broadway musical Jersey Boys opened on the 'Great White Way'. Besides performances of many of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons hit recordings, the musical features a biographical narrative, told as four separate points of view by each of the members of The Four Seasons (Tommy DeVito, Frankie Valli, Nick Massi, and Bob Gaudio). The musical dramatizes several real-life incidents from Valli's life, including his estrangement from his daughter Francine, who died in 1980.
The widely acclaimed show has won six Tony awards, with touring companies around the world, as well as a version at Paris Las Vegas. Based on the roadway smash hit and directed by Clint Eastwood, the movie Jersey Boys was released in 2014 to rave reviews, starring Christopher Walken and John Lloyd Young as Valli.

The songs are great, very few surprises there. But this is more a tribute to Mr. Valli's professionalism, not his enthusiasm. He's still a great performer (very little falsetto anymore, which is fine), and he knows how to work the crowd. But overall, he seems to be going through the motions. He's singing songs and using patter as if he's done this thousands of times before -- which he has. I don't know if he's having an off night, or this is just his style, but don't expect to be blown away by his stage presence or feel a special concert "spark". It's just not there.
What is there is a good set list of tunes you'll remember and enjoy. I recommend this DVD, as long as you manage your expectations.
He seems out of breath, he doesn't finish his vocal licks and lacks sufficient chops for this to be enjoyable.
The band and their vocals are great.
I checked to see when this was recorded because his effort was so bad I figured it was recent and he was by now in his 80's which might explain the poor effort, but is recorded over 30 years ago.
