The Charleston Gaillard Center announced Thursday that Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons’ concert, originally booked on June 17, has been rescheduled to Aug. 5.

June 17 is the one-year anniversary of the shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church, which is about a block from the Gaillard. The venue said both the artist and the management team wanted to reschedule in recognition of the event.

Tickets purchased to the show on June 17 will be honored on Aug. 5. Contact the venue at 843-242-3099 or ticketing@gaillardcenter.com with any questions.

Valli is perhaps best known for hits such as “Sherry,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and many more. His band’s career was documented in the Tony Award-winning play “Jersey Boys,” which debuted on Broadway in 2005.

The show this summer will be his first performance at the new Gaillard Center, and his first return to the Lowcountry since his concert at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center in 2014.
