At 71, he's clearly no longer just a boy but the show goes on for Leo Sayer.

The perpetually effervescent music legend continues to pack houses worldwide.

Now after the success of his sold-out UK tour, he is back to tour NSW and Victoria in a series of concerts.

Taking his all-star band out on the road, his shows will feature all his greatest hits, as well as material from his new release, Selfie.

Sayer is known the world over for classic songs including Thunder In My Heart, More Than I Can Say, Moonlighting, The Show Must Go On, One Man Band, When I Need You and You Make Me Feel Like Dancing.

Selfie is the first album completely performed, produced and arranged solely by Sayer. He also penned all of the 12 tracks, except three he co-wrote. It was recorded in his home studio in country NSW.

In the more than four decades since he embarked on his career, Sayer has written songs for some of the biggest names in the business, including Tina Turner, Cliff Richard, Roger Daltrey, Dolly Parton, Three Dog Night, Gene Pitney and Jennifer Warnes.

He has has more than 20 international top 10 singles and five global top 10 albums.

There isn't much Sayer hasn't done throughout his career. He's made appearances with The Muppets, The Wiggles and features on the Charlies Angels soundtrack - endearing him to music fans young and old.

He has performed at every kind of venue imaginable, from Moscow's Olympic Stadium, Central Park in New York, the Las Vegas Hilton, the Royal Albert Hall in London and the State Theatre in Sydney.

Leo became an Australian citizen in 2009.

In 2007 Thunder In My Heart got a dance remake, which went number one throughout England and Europe.

Selfie will be available at all shows.
