Teenagers once again on a Friday night

There were 1,900 people who became teenagers again Friday night at Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall.

Well, teenagers for 90 minutes anyway.

Frankie Valli can still do that to us.

The 70-something singer has still got the pipes many in Van Wezel's capacity crowd remember when we were in high school.

Or younger.

Backed up by four talented fellows -- the current Four Seasons -- who can sing and dance, Valli took us all back to the '60s with hits that were the soundtrack of our lives back in the day.

Days of innocence.

Who can forget "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Candy Girl," "Let's Hang On," "Rag Doll," "Sherry," and "Walk Like A Man"?

Valli also wowed the crowd with 70s hits, "December '63 (Oh, What A Night)," "Grease," "My Eyes Adored You," and "Swearin' To God" among others.

Everybody sang along, too. Not very well, either, but nobody cared.

It was a blast.

Oh, what a night, indeed.

Thank you, Frankie Valli.
