Sixties doo-wop singer Frankie Valli has canceled a concert in Bangkok this week because of Thailand's political unrest, The Associated Press reports.

Promoter BEC-Tero Entertainment PCL said Wednesday's performance was being scrapped "due to the current political situation and its associated difficulties, and for the safety and well-being of customers."

The concert, billed as Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, was to be held near one of several sites where protesters have been demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has struck a long-term deal to bring championship-caliber fight cards to the Sands Bethlehem Event Center in Bethlehem, Pa., according to The Morning Call in Allentown.

The collaboration is scheduled to kick off Feb. 20 with Tyson's one-man Broadway show, "The Undisputed Truth." The first boxing card is scheduled for Feb. 22.

The goal is for Tyson's Nevada-based company, Iron Mike Productions, to promote one fight card a month for the next 12 months. Tickets, $50-$200 for the boxing card, are expected to go on sale this month.
