The Bee Gees performed their hits in stripped-down fashion and told the stories behind them, demonstrating why they are the fifth most successful recording artists of all time. They joked with each other as only brothers can do, shared personal anecdotes, and performed their biggest hits and personal favorites. They took the audience back over a stellar 30-year career, performing songs like "Gotta Get a Message to You," "Jive Talkin,'" and "Stayin' Alive."
Robin Gibb revealed that one of their early hits, "To Love Somebody," was written for Otis Redding to sing. "He wanted to do it, but unfortunately didn't get to because he died in a plane crash," Gibb recalled.
The brothers also discussed their short-lived break-up in 1970. "We came back together and went to a studio," Barry said. "We didn't know whether we were going to be a group again -- it was all sort of up in the air. What we did that night will last forever for us." He went on to reveal that that night they wrote two Bee Gee classics: "Lonely Days" and "How Do You Mend A Broken Heart."
The Bee Gees touched on their "Saturday Night Fever" success and how "Stayin' Alive," "How Deep Is Your Love," "Night Fever," "If I Can't Have You," and "More Than A Woman" were written in a two-week period while they were stuck in a French chalet with nowhere to go. They performed hits they wrote for other singers, including "Islands in the Stream" and "Heartbreaker."
Complete track listing is as follows:
Got to get a message to you
To be somebody
I started a joke
How can you mend a broken heart
How deep is your love
Islands in the stream
I couldn’t love you more
