MORE than 50 years after he first performed as part of the band, Frankie Valli is still a true showman.

Now 82-years-old, Mr Valli, accompanied by four backing singers and an eight-piece band managed to sell-out the BIC and kept everyone swaying and dancing from start to finish.

The show was a chance to take a nostalgia trip back to the swinging sixties and beyond with tunes including Big Girls Don't Cry, Walk Like A Man, Can't Take My Eyes Off You, Sherry, and Beggin'.

I have always wanted to see The Jersey Boys in the West End, which features many of the band's songs, but I feel like this has now raised the bar for when I finally get the chance.

Frankie, who descends from New Jersey in the US, spoke very highly of the show, which he said he had seen several times.

I may sound old before my time, as I may be in my mid-twenties, but I feel like many of today's pop stars could learn a lesson or two in showmanship from Frankie Valli, who dressed up for the performance and put his heart and soul into every song.

It was so special to hear live performances of the tracks that my mum would listen to on vinyl as I grew up, which became unofficial soundtracks to my youth.

A personal highlight was when the full band kicked into action with Grease, which Frankie said was written by Barry Gibb. It was an unexpected treat for me to learn that it was sung by Frankie Valli.

Bye Bye Baby naturally closed the evening as fans who had spent the length of the show reliving their youth flocked to the front of the stage to shake hands with the owner of the voice who would sing out from record players across the country and over the pond.

Oh, What A Night to remember from one of music's living legends.
