Over 200 artists have done cover versions of Frankie's "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" from Nancy Wilson's jazz treatment to Lauryn Hill's hip-hop makeover.

Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons have sold over 175 million records worldwide. Valli's long-lasting career has led to the overwhelming success of the Broadway musical JERSEY BOYS. The musical chronicles Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons' incredible career and features all of their greatest hits.

The JERSEY BOYS juggernaut has now been seen by over 18 million people worldwide, won 4 Tony Awards including Best Musical (2006), and is currently playing in New York, Las Vegas, London, in cities across the U.S. on a National Tour and The Netherlands, and will open soon in Korea.
