Frankie Valli, who came to fame in 1962 as the lead singer of The Four Seasons, is hotter than ever. Thanks to the volcanic success of the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys, which chronicles the life and times of Valli and his legendary group, such classic songs as “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Rag Doll,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” are all the rage again. The widely-acclaimed musical has touring companies around the world, including a successful nine-year engagement at Paris Las Vegas which concluded in 2016.

The Four Seasons (group members 1960–1966) were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990, and joined the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999. With 71 chart hits (including forty in the Top 40, nineteen in the Top 10 and eight No. 1’s), they are one of the best-selling musical groups of all time, having sold an estimated 170 million records worldwide. Valli is the only member of the group from its inception who currently tours.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Reserved seating tickets, starting at $35, go on sale at Saturday, Feb. 9, at 10 a.m. at TheSmithCenter.com. To charge by phone, call 702.749.2000. All tickets are subject to facility and ticketing surcharges. All ages welcome.

Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson Plays “Thick as a Brick 1 & 2” Live at The Smith Center on Friday, July 5

Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson
Plays “Thick as a Brick 1 & 2”
Live at The Smith Center on Friday, July 5

Tickets for one night engagement on sale Friday, March 1 at 10 a.m.

Danny Zelisko Presents Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson Plays “Thick as a Brick 1 & 2” live at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts  on Friday, July 5, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for this special live concert event go on sale Friday, March 1 at 10 a.m.

Ian Anderson will be performing both his composition “Thick as a Brick” in its entirety for the first time since 1972, and his new album, “Thick as a Brick 2” for a world tour, which began April 2012, in the U.K.

The tour features a more theatrical production with video and additional musicians, including Ian’s band: bassist David Goodier, keyboardist John O’Hara, drummer Scott Hammond,and wunderkind guitarist Florian Opahle – all of whom have performed with Ian on his solo dates over the years as well as having performed at various times as members of Jethro Tull. British singer Ryan O’Donnell, who has been active in the U.K. theatrical scene will also be singing.  Ian added the young performer as he wants to perform vocals and instrument parts as they appeared on the original “Thick as a Brick.”

Ian’s new album, “Thick as a Brick 2” also features David, John, Scott and Florian. It was produced by Ian Anderson and mixed by Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson (who also re-mixed Jethro Tull’s AQUALUNG-Special Edition, released this past fall.)

The album answers the question 40 years later, whatever happened to Gerald Bostock – the person credited with writing the lyrics for “Thick as a Brick” – which hit number one on the U.S. Billboard Pop Albums charts. With the first “Thick as a Brick,” Jethro Tull broadened rock beyond the limitations of the short song format.  Ian Anderson says “Part two” gave him a chance to wonder “how we baby-boomers look back on our own lives and often feel an occasional ‘what-if’ moment. Might we, like Gerald, have become instead preacher, soldier, down-and-out, shopkeeper or finance tycoon?”

Since 1972, the original “Thick as a Brick” has never been performed in its entirety although a few minutes of the material have been a regular repertoire staple in both Jethro Tull and Ian Anderson solo shows over the years.

After 45 years of leading Jethro Tull to 54 countries worldwide and more than 60 million albums sold, Ian Anderson celebrates these true progressive rock classics with old and new fans across the world. Ian is known as the flute, voice and composer of the legendary Jethro Tull which formed in England in 1968. Since their first performance at London’s famous Marquee Club in 1968, the band has released 30 studio and live albums and earned a prominent place in rock history.
