Some updates and fan answers
* Barry's album and tour 2016:
No confirmations yet. still plans, like earlier mentioned, of releasing the album in the first part of 2016, (probably around March 2016 but certainly not at the end of 2015!!) and furthermore....
plans for live concerts after the album release in 2016. We keep you posted.
* Barry's Bumsrush video and the possibility to order it:
There is no system in place presently to order this video. We hope again in near future.
* What about plans of Barry to release the live recording of the Melbourne concert from 1989.
Barry and John Merchant remixed the audio from the original 'One For All' - home video release recorded at the 1989
Melbourne Concert for inclusion in the more recent Bee Gees Box set: The Warner Bros. Years 1987 - 1991.
GSI Offer - Premiere Titanic Concert Siegen
Do you have tickets for this concert and are you interested in getting a chance to meet with the guests before the start of the concert???
GSI will probably have a possibility, in cooperation with the concert organisation, to visit the guests with some fans before the show starts, for a chat and take some photos etc.
In Germany we expect The Gibbs only to be present at the premiere in Siegen.
I can only invite a small group of fans.... If you have booked tickets for Siegen I can put you on the list and let you in. If you are interested then send an email soon
Marion@brothersgibb.org subject: fan visit Siegen.
There are only a few places left on my list.

Robin John reports from Taranto, Italy.
Message from RJ a few hours before the start of the premiere of Titanic, October 23rd.
A word from RJ on tonight's performance of the Titanic Live Concert;
The concert's orchestral and visual providence is very poignant and beautiful, the holographic artwork perfected to such a magnificent scale (we are now in eye liner HD) with the equivalent of the "Italy Has Talent show" on board, it welcomes a vast national and international audience.
The visual effects now include people, everywhere on board, real actors portraying the parts, utilized alongside fantastic animated artistry. The result is brilliant!
If we currently live in a place where appreciation for good art across all genres and good taste in music still prevails, then there is no reason why this concert should not spark the origins of something which the whole world will wish to witness...and endeavor to be apart of.
It is a mixture of classical music, some popular music styles, performance art, ballet, opera and stage theatre, dashed with holographic displays...
A true gem.

Dennis Bryon, "You Should be Dancing"
More about his recent released book, You Should Be Danding.
Dancing days revisited
"If you think it's a good idea, you put it together." Upon hearing Barry Gibb say those words to him, drummer Dennis Bryon moved forward with rounding out the backing band that would help propel
The Bee Gees to superstardom in the mid-to-late 1970s.
That's just one of the interesting accounts in Bryon's new autobiography, You Should Be Dancing: My Life With The Bee Gees, out now via ECW Press.
It's a lean, breezy account of his life growing up in South Wales, becoming a drummer, finding early success with the band Amen Corner,
landing the gig with The Bee Gees and what has happened since the early 1980s, when Bryon parted ways with Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb.

Opening stage 2 of Bee Gees Way
Fantastic! I have watched the 2 hours live stream with Australia: the opening by Barry Gibb of stage 2 of Bee Gees Way in Redcliffe, emotional and very nice.
It was like being amongst the audience in Redcliffe. So many enthusiast people for Barry and he took all the time of the world to have a chat with the fans, sign autographs and to go on a photo with many of them.
Despite winds and rain, thousands of fans had come to welcome Barry and his family.
Very glad to see Mum Barbara amongst the family as well as sister Lesley. She had recently fallen down and broke a spine, so was in a wheelchair too.
Barry looked happy and relaxed with his mum and sister, some other relatives and close friends like Kelly and TG. joining him to this opening.
There have been people asking who has made these wonderful bronze statues:
They were made by Mr. Phillip Piperides

Call for more acknowledgement of Robin Gibb's legacy
A woman who wants more official recognition to be given to the work of late Bee Gee Robin Gibb is taking her campaign to Parliament.
Jill Francis has long wanted the singer-songwriter to be knighted, but this has been impossible following his death.
Read story at:
Tim Roxborogh about The Bee Gees
"Since that first time watching the two bearded guys either side of the slight guy in the middle who sometimes held his hand to his ear, I've been a fan of the Bee Gees.
It was 1989, I was seven years old and I remember being mesmerised by the power of the melodies and harmonies.
The concert was the One For All tour and my memory tells me the Bee Gees were always on TV in Malaysia where my family lived in the 1980s.
Here are links to my more than 50 (to date) articles about the Bee Gees. Hope you enjoy them and gain a new appreciation whether you are a fan already or not."

MESSAGE FROM ROBIN JOHN GIBB
GSI mentioned already before that Dwina informed us about possibilities of performing the Titanic Requiem in Italy soon, now there's more news on this!!
Titanic Requiem in Italy!
'On October 23rd of this year, there will be a world premier Titanic Requiem concert with full holographic projection displays in Taranto at the Palamazzola. This concert kicks off a tour of concerts around Italy. That is the first tour.
I was also very honored to receive an award for the Titanic Requiem for myself and on behalf of my late father for best international artists, a recognition for the Requiem I was happy to accept tonight in Taranto.
There were many Italian passengers among the 1,517 souls who lost there lives on Titanic and this Requiem is for all who perished on board Titanic or who suffered the equally horrible fate of losing there loved ones in that way.
I'll update you all later on progress'.

Stage 2 of Bee Gees Way
Keep updated at:
The Japanese version of the Robin compilation
will be coming out on August 5th. We completed work on the accompanying booklet (some 60 pages) with sheets of lyrics and translation a few weeks ago.
We advised Warner Japan to also include the "bonus" photos from the 1970
Japanese release of "Robin's Reign" and got our own copy scanned for the
purpose. We met with Warner JP the other day and were shown the sample
photos. They looked glossy and good.
There is also an ad on the August issue of Japanese "Record Collectors"
magazine. It's the first time in many years that any Gibb-related release
gets to be advertised in a Japanese magazine. However, this release is
basically considered for the hardcore fan base. That is, Warner Japan is
only bringing out a small number of copies in the market this time. So if
you are a collector and are interested in getting the Japanese edition, it
will be advisable to preorder now.
Of course, we are hoping this will be another commercial success for Robin,
but we are not actually sure what will happen after the first batch sells
out. Although I am sure you already have multiple versions of the stuff, but
quite frankly, priced at around $30 (U.S.), the Japanese edition of
"Collected Works" is a good buy!
Very rare sleeve photos of the original Japanese "Robin's Reign" LP will be included as "bonus material" in the upcoming Japanese release
It can be ordered from the following websites (all in English).

John Merchant aboutBarry Gibb album
After a short break to let our ears cool down, it's on to mixing (in Miami) and then mastering (in Maine).
The tracks are all recorded, but we still need to mix and master the project before delivery.
