OH WHAT a Night you’ll have if you go to Blackfriars Theatre on Saturday.

Let’s Hang On will be taking audiences on a musical journey through the career of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.

It is the story of the blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who wrote their own songs, invented their own sound and took the world by storm – all before the age of 30.

In the first part of the show Let’s Hang On promise to take audiences back to the very beginning where it all began.

It will include tracks from the early 50s when Frankie first joined the group and followed with the addition of Bob Gaudio.

Bob is recognised today as one of the greatest song writers of all time.

The group promises to treat crowds to even more classic early material recreated live on stage with the greatest of accuracy.

Also in this first section of the show Let’s Hang On do acapella singing as the stage is transformed into a street corner in New Jersey with four guys sitting on some steps under a street lamp singing ‘doo wop’.

In the second part of the show organisers say it is simply party time promising all the favourite hits.

They say audiences are guaranteed to be dancing in the aisles and singing at the top of your voices to songs including Dec 63, Beggin’, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Grease, Working My Way Back To You, Who Loves You and Bye Bye Baby.

The whole show leads up to an electrifying finale when out come the retro red jackets and a legendary falsetto vocal to blow the roof off with Rag Doll, Sherry, Walk Like A Man and Big Girls Don’t Cry.

Franki Valli and the Four Seasons’ Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi, and Bob Gaudio were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.

The group had their first number one hit Sherry in 1962.

Under the guidance of producer/songwriter Bob Crewe, The Four Seasons followed up Sherry with several million-selling hits, including Big Girls Don't Cry (their second number one hit), Walk Like a Man (their third number one), Candy Girl and Ain't That a Shame,

The show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets: £15.50 (conc £13.50). To book call 01205 363108.
