The original Teen Idol (and “Teen Angel” in Grease), Frankie Avalon comes to the Valley for the very first time, bringing a feel-good evening of pop favorites to The Soraya — with music and stories of his long career in show business.
Avalon’s career spans three generations of music, TV, and films. Born in 1940, Avalon was a child prodigy who made appearances on the Perry Como and Jackie Gleeson shows. In 1959, he had six top-40 hits. His best known film credits include the Beach Party series. As a nightclub act, Avalon has played iconic venues such as the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach and the Copacabana in New York, and he remains today one of the busiest nightclub performers, headlining top Las Vegas venues. His band includes Edan Everly, son of Don Everly of the legendary Everly Brothers.
