There is just no stopping Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons.

Although the American pop band have not topped the music charts in more than 30 years, they are nonetheless enjoying a second lease of life - with the help of a Broadway musical.

Titled Jersey Boys, the successful, multiple-award-winning stage show depicts the trials of Valli and his now-defunct band The Four Seasons, the phenomenal musical group he fronted that had scored 29 Top 40 hits in the 1960s and 1970s.

The biographical musical, which will be staged in Singapore from tomorrow to Feb 17, has introduced the band's legacy to an entirely new generation of music fans, something which Valli says is "amazing".
