The Best of the Bee Gees will be packed with mega-hits and first-hand stories when it hits the Moncrieff stage on Saturday 10 September.
The show will bring a massive catalogue and original Bee Gees drummer, Colin “Smiley” Petersen who was the earliest non-Gibb official band member and shares screen time in the latest bio-pic, How Can You Mend A Broken Heart.
He was essential to the Bee Gees sound, driving the evolution of the super group on stage and in the studio over four albums and #1 singles including Massachusetts, To Love Somebody, New York Mining Disaster, I Started A Joke, Words, Gotta Get A Message To You, World, and many more.
A child drumming protégé, Colin welcomed Gene Krupa (Benny Goodman’s Big Band) to Australia playing his kit on the tarmac at Brisbane airport, and later swapped beats at the hotel.
Colin was also a child actor with three iconic international films under his belt by the time he was a teenager – Smiley (1956), The Scamp (UK 1957) and A Cry From The Streets (UK 1958).
The Best of the Bee Gees Show has brought global audiences hustling to their feet for more than two decades and the lineup includes Evan Webster (Barry Gibb), Russell Davey (Robin Gibb) and Greg Wain (Maurice Gibb).
“It’s wonderful that these incredible songs live on through this great show and I am thrilled to add another dimension by sharing my memories,” Colin said.
It would be a Tragedy to miss this ultimate tribute celebrating a quintessential set list of soaring, three-part harmonies and timeless classics –
Saturday Night Fever, How Deep Is Your Love, Stayin’ Alive, Grease, Jive Talkin’, Spicks & Specks, Words, To Love Somebody, Massachusetts, I Started a Joke, I’ve Got to Get a Message to You, Too Much Heaven, You Should Be Dancing and others.
