New Jersey Nights has smashed box office records right across the USA and UK and yesterday I had the absolute pleasure of witnessing this spectacle of a show with thanks to BH Live for the complimentary tickets. The ultimate Tuesday treat!
New Jersey Nights is a spectacular celebration of the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons and takes the audience on an energising musical journey with the nostalgic, much-loved sounds of one of the biggest selling groups of all times.
Frankie Valli is one of the most iconic musicians of all time. Best known as the frontman of The Four Seasons, Frankie stood out from contemporary singers for his unique falsetto vocals.
After The Four Seasons, Frankie then went on to secure a highly successful solo career of his own, with songs that live on in the precious memory of so many decades later, and this is all so animately presented in New Jersey Nights.
With The Four Seasons, Valli had 29 hit singles that reached the Top 40 and as a solo artist, he added a further nine Top 40 hits. In New Jersey Nights, you will hear songs from ‘Sherr’, one of the Four Seasons first number one hits to Frankie’s first solo single, ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off You’. You will then journey through the 1970s to performances of the title track to the iconic film Grease, which became a hit all over the world.
For a career that has spanned half a century, it’s difficult to list all the awards and acclaim Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons have won, and New Jersey Nights truly is the perfect tribute to this iconic period in music history.
Almost every recording artist of today owes it all to the music of the 1960s. It cannot be understated that the 1960s completely revolutionised pop music as we know it. It was by far the most influential musical decade in modern history, and this spread to the sounds to the style.
As someone who has studied music history intensely, I just adore nothing more than to time travel back to this iconic decade. And last night, I travelled back in time to New Jersey where it all began, in this hugely vibrant, glitzy production that captured the essence of what made the 60s just so very special.
The production is truly illuminated by the award-winning cast of incredible singers, dancers and unique stage sets. It was such a joy to see the audience reminisce with songs that have meant so much to them, and it’s truly no wonder that New Jersey Nights is one of the most popular touring productions of all time.
A huge thank you to BH Live for the tickets to this electrifying performance of New Jersey Nights, my Mum and I had the best time!
