Secondo un comunicato (pubblicato dalla Reuters), un portavoce della BMI ha dichiarato che al momento non è chiaro se Barry e Robin Gibb si esibiranno dal vivo, alla cerimonia per il il premio "BMI Icon" il prossimo 15 maggio a Los Angeles. Alcuni altri artisti premiati nelle precedenti edizioni (come ad esempio Ray Davies dei Kinks) non hanno cantato, ma altri (Paul Simon e Santana) si. In ogni caso la cerimonia prevede delle esibizioni di altri artisti in onore dei premiati.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The Bee Gees will receive a lifetime achievement award from a music industry group in Beverly Hills in May, organizers said on Monday.

The pop legends will be presented with the Icon Award during performing rights group BMI's 55th annual pop music awards on May 15 at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

A BMI spokeswoman said it was unclear if surviving brothers Barry and Robin Gibb would perform at the invite-only, black-tie event. They have sung together only twice since Robin's twin Maurice died suddenly of a heart ailment in 2003 -- at charity events last year in Florida and London

Last year's honoree, Ray Davies of the Kinks, did not play. But previous recipients, such as Paul Simon, Merle Haggard and Carlos Santana, did. Either way, the events include performances of the honorees' tunes by other artists.

The awards dinner honors the BMI-represented writers and publishers of the year's most-performed compositions. Rival group ASCAP will honor Melissa Etheridge at its annual event in Hollywood on April 18.
