Along with his twin brothers, Barry Gibb sang and played guitar in one of the hottest bands of the '70s and early '80s -- The Bee Gees. Together they produced smash hits like "Stayin' Alive," "How Deep Is Your Love" and "Night Fever" and provided the soundtrack for the film Saturday Night Fever. Gibb also wrote songs for other music icons, including Barbara Streisand, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Celine Dion and Michael Bolton. As the sole survivor of the Bee Gees, Gibb continues to tour solo and is often joined on stage by his son Stephen and his niece Samantha to sing hits from throughout his 50-year career. Learn More

A most interesting interpretation with excellent use of cinema to enhance this avant garde performance. Jessye Norman's voice is always amazing and Neena Freelon is wonderful to hear as were the two other performers The drummer was a joy and the orchestra and conductor innovative. In all it was good. It was hard to read the subtitles on the screen unless one had binoculars, which I did. Hard to keep hold them throughout. Not sure how else it could have been done. The repetition was at times tedious.
<p>This heady mixture weaves the collective memories of America and the hopes for its future into a tapestry of orchestral music and sound samples.</p>
