live’n’loud: Au­dio Vixen gets Gibbs sup­port ..............

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Gibb has asked for Syd­ney-based trio Au­dio Vixen (pic­tured) to be the sup­port act on his Aus­tralian tour. The Bee Gees le­gend was re­port­edly drawn to the group af­ter hear­ing their cover ver­sion of Morn­ing of My Life. Au­dio Vixen – com­pris­ing the Pir­relli sib­lings Ria, Chris­tine, and Ross – recorded the song as fi­nal­ists on The X Fac­tor, mak­ing no se­cret of their love for the Bee Gees. ‘‘When we set out to try and get Barry to lis­ten to our mu­sic, we just pre­sumed we’d get a note back say­ing thanks but no thanks,’’ Ria says. ‘‘A few weeks later we got a phone call from the pro­mot­ers to say Barry had re­quested that Au­dio Vixen be his sup­port act for his tour in Fe­bru­ary. ‘‘We’ve been told that he lis­tened to the CD and watched our clip on YouTube and it all hap­pened from there.’’

Barry Gibb plays Bris­bane En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre on Fe­bru­ary 16.
