Bee Gees member Robin Gibb has returned to the public eye after two years of mourning the untimely loss of his twin brother and fellow Bee Gee, Maurice. Robin’s immediate plans include a live tribute concert and worldwide television special, compilation, new recordings and concert tours. The project has been planned to take over five years and will re-introduce Gibb and the Bee Gees to music lovers.
Gibb recently began The Magnetic Tour 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.”
After the German dates, Gibb will return to the studio 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 Gibb and Babyface and will feature vocalists including Jagged Edge, the Black Eyed Peas and a handful of the roster of Mathew Knowles’ new management division of Sanctuary Artist Management.
“Maurice loved life,” said Gibb, “And we want to celebrate his life and talent the best way we know how–through music.”
