"Esplanade back in business as big-name gigs revealed"
(BRIAN FERGUSON)
FORMER Bee Gees star Robin Gibb, Irish boy band Westlife and operatic chart-toppers Il Divo will all play outdoor shows at Edinburgh Castle this summer.
Promoters today unveiled details of the first three open-air shows lined up for the Esplanade at the world-famous attraction.
Gigs at the Castle are being revived after last year's 11th-hour postponement of a string of concerts, expected to have been performed by rock legends such as Bob Dylan, Meat Loaf and Sting.
They were shelved after talks broke down between Regular Music, promoters of the Castle Concerts, and Historic Scotland, which is responsible for running and maintaining the Castle.
The Evening News revealed in December that health and safety fears harboured by some Historic Scotland officials had been resolved and the concerts were set to return.
A total of six concerts are expected to be held at the Esplanade over two weekends in July this year, with most of the fans due to be accommodated in the giant stands erected for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
If they sell out, the shows could generate upwards of 9 million for the Capital's economy. Barry Wright, promoter of the Castle Concerts series, said: "We're delighted to announce the return of the summer concerts to Edinburgh Castle and an impressive line-up for 2006.
Over two weekends in July, some of the finest performers in the world will take to the stage at this legendary venue to perform in front of an estimated audience of 8000 people each evening." City council leader Donald Anderson said: "I'm delighted that these great artists have chosen to come to Edinburgh.
The stunning and iconic setting of the Castle makes concerts there a special event for both performer and audience and will give everyone a night to remember.
"On a personal level, I'm particularly looking forward to Il Divo.
" Westlife, who will be appearing on July 21, will be returning to the venue two years after they played there in a show which set a new record as the fastest sell-out to date at the Esplanade.
The superstar band have sold more than 34m worth of albums and have notched up an amazing 12 number one hits.
Il Divo, the pop-classical quartet assembled by impresario Simon Cowell famously knocked Robbie Williams off the top of the UK album charts with their debut, which went on to enjoy chart-topping success in another 25 countries around the world.
Earlier this month Il Divo saw their latest album enter the US album charts at number one and the band's 2006 world tour will see them visit 58 cities in 18 countries. The four members of the group, due to appear in Edinburgh on July 20, are French, American, Swiss and Spanish.
Robin Gibb, one of two surviving members of the Bee Gees, will bring a full live band and classical orchestra to the Esplanade on July 16.
Fans of the Bee Gees - whose hits have been covered by musicians such as Boyzone, George Michael and Take That - can expect performances of classic hits like Stayin' Alive, Jive Talking, Night Fever and How Deep Is Your Love?

Moby, Runrig, Del Amitri, Paul Simon, Wet Wet Wet, Mike Oldfield, Elton John, The Beach Boys, Status Quo and Van Morrison are among the acts to have appeared at the Esplanade.
Tickets, priced 35 and 40, are due to go on sale on Friday from Ripping Records, on South Bridge, Tickets Scotland on Rose Street, the Castle Concerts ticket hotline on 0870 903 3444 or via www.ticketweb.co.uk.
