Jersey Boys Tour

Jersey Boys, which details the story of Frankie Valli and the popular singing group The Four Seasons, has just received another award to add to its already crowded mantle piece. The RIAA (Recording Industry Association of American) has certified platinum the original cast recording to commemorate one million sales in the U.S.

In 2006 the album won a Grammy award for Best Musical Show Album. It continues to sell well and almost four years after it was released continues to land on Billboard’s Top 25 chart for Top Catalog albums. This week it is the #1 album on the Billboard Top Cast Albums chart.

Since Jersey Boys made its debut in 2005, it has been one of the biggest successes on Broadway in recent times. The show constantly plays out to sold sold audiences and has received rave reviews. In 2006 the musical won a Tony award for Best Musical and in 2009 an Olivier award for Best New Musical. Jersey Boys is the story of The Four Seasons and Frankie Valli, narrating their unlikely rise from blue collar kids in Newark to the very heights of musical stardom.

The show is produced by Bob Gaudio, one of the original Four Seasons. The musical features performances of some of their biggest hits, including “Dawn (Go Away),” “Walk Like A Man,” “December 1963 (Oh What A Night),” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” and “Sherry.”

The production, which has played on Broadway now for almost four years, still plays to record setting, sold out crowds all over the country, including two extended runs in Las Vegas and Chicago. Jersey Boys is also playing in front of sold out houses internationally. Debuts in Toronto and London occurred last years and this summer the musical opened in Melbourne, Australia at Princess Theatre.
