Las Vegas headliners Jersey Boys will perform a 10-minute medley at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, March 11 as part of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Kobalt Tools 400 pre-race show.
The hit show chronicles the journey of pop music icons Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons from a 1950s Newark, N.J. doo-wop quartet to five Billboard Magazine No. 1 hits and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The show won a Tony Award for Best Musical of 2006 and features such Four Seasons hits as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Dawn.”
Jersey Boys now is playing at their new home at the Paris Hotel & Casino and on Broadway in New York City.
