MUSIC fans are in for a treat this weekend with a galaxy of stars, new and old, playing Singapore.

First up, the original Jersey Boy, Frankie Valli, performs for one night only tonight at The Star. As the lead singer of The Four Seasons, whose members' life stories are the subject of the Tony-award-winning Broadway smash Jersey Boys, the doo-wop legend was a staple in the music industry during the 1960s, topping the charts with hits such as Who Loves You, Walk Like a Man, Big Girls Don't Cry, Can't Take My Eyes Off You and more.

His signature falsetto helped the band sell over 100 million records and after more than four decades in the music business, he still shows no signs of slowing down by touring the world constantly. Expect to hear a hits-filled set comprising all the Four Seasons classics plus more from his solo career including My Eyes Adored You and the title theme from Grease. the annual St Jerome's Laneway Festival returns for its biggest show tomorrow at The Meadows, Gardens by the Bay. A third stage has been added for the first time to accommodate the extra acts and the line-up as usual features indie music's biggest rising stars including all-girl post-punk quartet Savages, local underground darlings The Observatory and dubstep artist James Blake. Come to catch bands you know and discover the ones you don't.
