Frankie Avalon coming to Cerritos

CERRITOS – Crooner and former teen idol Frankie Avalon will perform at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday, Jan. 18. Tickets, starting at $45, are now on sale.

Avalon will be joined by Dean Torrence and his band, the Surf City All Stars.

A child prodigy who won local contests playing the trumpet, Avalon scored televised appearances on “The Perry Como Show” and “The Jackie Gleason Show” by the time he was 12.

Those television credits paved the way for a successful acting career with featured roles in films “Beach Party,” “Muscle Beach Party” and “Bikini Beach,” all of which also featured popular ex-Mouseketeer Annette Funicello.

Tickets to the show can be purchased online at or by calling the ticket office at (562) 467-8818.
