Beautiful venue! Probably not a bad seat in the house. One advantage of sitting further back is that the sky and stars are overhead. Don't miss the chance to see Barry Gibb ...we had forgotten how MANY incredible songs he and his brothers wrote...continued

Description

Barry Gibb is a prolific and successful songwriter, and is a fellow of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors. In 1977, Gibb saw five of his songs simultaneously enter the Top Ten of the Billboard Hot 100, and for one week in March, four of the top five songs were written by him. His songs were No. 1 for 27 out of 37 weeks from 24 December 1977 to 2 September 1978. Gibb also holds a very unusual record, in that he is the only songwriter in history to write four successive US number one hits: in 1978, the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive” was replaced at number one by Andy Gibb’s single, “Love Is Thicker Than Water”, followed by the Bee Gees’ “Night Fever” for their longest run, seven weeks. This was then replaced by Yvonne Elliman’s “If I Can’t Have You”. 

As a songwriter Gibb has had No. 1 songs in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s 1990s and 2000s, when “Islands in the Stream” became No. 1 in the UK as the comic relief single for 2009. His songs have been recorded by numerous artists, including Al Green, Wyclef Jean, Janis Joplin, Jimmy Little, Barry Manilow, Olivia Newton-John, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Kenny Rogers, Diana Ross, Nina Simone, Barbra Streisand, Tina Turner, Conway Twitty,Frankie Valli, Luther Vandross and Dionne Warwick. Gibb has also produced albums for Andy Gibb, Kenny Rogers, Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand and Dionne Warwick.
