Stars pay tribute to Bee Gees
THE Recording Academy and CBS will pay tribute to the Bee Gees two days after the Grammys with a concert featuring a range of artists, including Celine Dion, Andra Day, John Legend and Keith Urban.
The show, Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees, will mark the 40th anniversary of the pop legends’ soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever. Barry Gibb, the sole surviv- ing member and co-founder of the Grammy-winning group who released a solo album late last year, will perform a selection of hits from the soundtrack, which won a Grammy for album of the year in 2004.
The concert will be taped on February 14 at the Microsoft Theatre, to be broadcast later this year.
Little Big Town, Nick Jonas, Tori Kelly, Demi Lovato and the Pentatonix are among oth- ers to perform, with additions expected. The Bee Gees “helped make
Saturday Night Fever an emblem of 1970s pop culture”, Neil Portnow, president and chief executive officer of The Recording Academy, said.
“With expert harmonies, undeniable groove and a personal charisma matching their onstage persona, the iconic band of brothers defined not just a genre, but a generation.”
