Frankie Valli, crooner of love songs like “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” and, with The Four Seasons, tunes including “December 1963 (Oh, What a Night),” still in classic radio rotation, will be part of Rivers Casino’s 10-year anniversary celebration.

Valli will perform at the casino’s Event Center at 8 p.m. Aug. 10-11.

Tickets start at $69.

Beginning more than 50 years ago, Valli has captivated lovestruck couples with his trademark falsetto and has sold more than 100 million records.

The Four Seasons debuted the song “Sherry” on American Bandstand in the early ’60s.

Valli went on to a solo career, releasing popular hits including “Let’s Hang On,” “Working My Way Back to You,” and “Swearin’ to God,” while simultaneously performing with The Four Seasons.

“Frankie Valli is a musical icon and we are honored to have him celebrate our decade milestone. The performance of his timeless tracks will be special and memorable for everyone there,” says casino general manager Bill Keena.

In 2007, Valli released his most recent album, “Romancing the ’60s,” which features his own stamp on some of his favorite ’60s songs, including new versions of “Spanish Harlem,” “Take Good Care of My Baby” and “Call Me.”
