Stars pay trib­ute to Bee Gees

Sunday Herald Sun - - World -

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.”
