The BeeGees Update: Robin Gibb
A return from hiatus

“I have spent almost two years reconciling my personal life and determining my future. With a terrific team, I am looking forward to the many years to come and the outstanding projects we have in store, beginning almost immediately.

I am very appreciative of the love, support and consideration that fans, business associates, and media have shown since Maurice’s passing.”

Robin Gibb and the Bee Gees Tour Moscow with Sponsorship from Uniastrum Bank

The legendary Bee Gees, featuring their soloist Robin Gibbs, performed at the State Kremlin Palace Theatre. Uniastrum Bank was the official sponsor of the event.

The group came together in 1967, and achieved overwhelming popularity with their soundtrack to “Saturday Night Fever” starring John Travolta.

The name of the band itself is symbolic- the initials stand for “Brothers Gibbs”. Thanks to them, the band was created thirty years ago, and their legacy remains to this day.

The band’s style stands out on account of the unique vocals and melodious combination of voices. Their debut album in 1971 “Lonely Days” and “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart” sold millions of copies in the USA. All members of the band took part in the “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club” movie.

During the Kremlin performance, the ecstatic audience enjoyed classics such as “Massachusetts” and “Don’t Forget to Remember”.

In the words of Uniastrum Bank President, Gagik Zakaryan: “Bee Gees music is immediately recognizable. Their vibrant solo vocal has never failed to please audiences. I’m very pleased that the Bee Gees have attracted thousands of fans in Moscow.”

Commenting on the concert, Robin Gibb acknowledged the warm reception received from Russian audiences, who were taken back in time by the nostalgic melodies.

“This is a festival of nostalgic rhythm, and the concert itself is a phenomenal success with our audience” commented George Piskov, Chairman of Uniastrum Bank.

Bee Gee Robin Gibb Signs with Eagle Vision For DVD Rights To Current European Tour

(10/11/04) Robin Gibb has signed an exclusive worldwide agreement with Eagle Vision to film and distribute the DVD of Gibb’s current sold out tour of Germany.

The deal, which incorporates the filming of the Bonn concert, is part of the new 5 year plan that was announced by the singer recently, which includes an extraordinary live tribute concert and worldwide television special in honor of his twin brother, Bee Gee Maurice, a compilation CD and brand new recordings, as well as concert tours.

The sellout show was filmed by Jim Chankin, and will be released in early 2005.

(Los Angeles, September 16, 2004) Fortunately for millions of fans worldwide, music legend Robin Gibb has returned from his self-imposed hiatus after the untimely loss of his twin brother and fellow Bee Gee Maurice.

Robin’s immediate plans include an extraordinary live tribute concert and worldwide television special, compilation and brand new recordings, and concert tours. The  project spans over 5 years, and will re-introduce Robin and the Bee Gees to both past, present, and importantly the future.

Robin has just set off on the Magnetic Tour 2004 in Germany with the New Frankfurt Philharmonic, which is being taped by Eagle Vision for an upcoming DVD.  

Dr. Ralph Philipp Ziegler, Artistic Leader for the Philharmonic, is quoted as saying, “Having been chosen to team up with Robin Gibb fills us with great pride and we are extremely motivated, for Robin, and for our audience, to present this extraordinary event with the greatest enthusiasm.”

In October 2004, the ultimate compilation CD of some of the Bee Gees #1 songs was released worldwide by Polydor.

Robin will return to the studio after the German dates to finish recording a new solo CD, produced by Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds under Robin’s Magnet, Inc. production banner.

The album will feature Bee Gees songs personally selected by Robin, and Babyface featuring chart topping contemporary vocalists including Jagged Edge, Black Eyed Peas, and a handful of the roster of Mathew Knowles’ new management division of Sanctuary Artist Management, as well as many outstanding surprises. 

A limited Making Of non-scripted television series is planned to precede the release of the CD, which is anticipated for Fall ’05.  An extensive World Tour will follow.

Perhaps the biggest project Robin is undertaking is a televised tribute concert for Maurice.

Along with Maurice’s family, the Maurice Gibb Foundation and CG Management, comprised of long-time manager Ken Graydon, who continues to represent Robin in the UK and Europe, and well established British manager and publisher John Campbell, who has re-located to Los Angeles to set up an American operation and to represent Robin in the U.S., other international territories,  Robin is preparing what promises to be the consummate star-studded, talent packed musical special event, a tribute to Maurice.

It will take place in the United States in Spring ’05, and be broadcast on a U.S. television network and worldwide. Babyface will be the music director of the show, which is sure to be a major musical event of 2005, attracting enormous worldwide interest.

sIt’s worth noting, friends of the top selling trio are all coming out to remember Maurice. Charity foundation EIF is in talks to become seriously involved in the project. 

“Maurice loved life,” said Robin, “And we want to celebrate his life and talent the best way we know how – through music.”
