Bee Gees’ hits will just keep com­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Shirley Bar­tynek

In­ter­na­tional smash-hit con­cert show The Magic of the Bee Gees – fea­tur­ing all of their mil­lion-sell­ing hits in­clud­ing Night Fever, How Deep is Your Love, Jive Talkin’and Mas­sachusetts – is com­ing to Hamil­ton.

“No other Bri­tish band has made as big an im­pact on pop mu­sic his­tory,”says Martin Spooner, who plays Robin Gibb in the show.

“They shaped the sound of pop mu­sic in the six­ties, in­vented disco with the sound­track of the film Satur­day Night Fever in the sev­en­ties and wrote ca­reerdefin­ing hits for many, many other artists.”

Th­ese in­clude num­ber one hits Is­lands in the Stream, Grease and If I Can’t Have You – recorded by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Par­ton, Frankie Valli and Yvonne Eller­man re­spec­tively – which are all per­formed in the Magic of the Bee Gees con­cert show, de­scribed as the UK’s most au­then­tic Bee Gees revue.

“Not only were the Gibb broth­ers pro­lific record­ing artists,” says Martin,“notch­ing up a re­ported 220 mil­lion sales world­wide, they were master song­writ­ers. Their mu­sic spanned three decades and their songs de­fine pop mu­sic from a pe­riod that the world looks back on so fondly to­day.”

The stars of The Magic of the Bee Gees claim that ev­ery­one has a favourite Bee Gees song.

“Young­sters in our au­di­ences,” says Martin,“who dance and sing along to the Bee Gees’clas­sics per­formed, wouldn’t have been born when the Bee Gees orig­i­nally re­leased their hits.

“Yet they know ev­ery word of the ma­jor­ity of the songs.

“That,”con­cludes Martin, “un­der­lines the ge­nius and ev­er­last­ing charm of Robin, Mau­rice and Barry Gibb – the great­est singer song­writ­ers of our time.”

The UK’s No 1 live Bee Gees Revue will be per­formed on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 26, at the Town House in Hamil­ton.
