The Bee Gees
played a number of "one night only" (one-off) live concerts
around the world. The first concert took place in Dublin RDS Arena on
August 29th. The second show was at London's Wembley Stadium on
September 5th. (I was there!!).
On October 17th, the Brothers did their first concert ever in South
America. They played at the Boca Junior Stadium in Buenos Aires. On November
28th, there was their first time show in South Africa, (Pretoria).
I began to work on a project I had in mind for 2 years: the first Italian
website dedicated to the Bee Gees. I opened "Bee Gees Italy",
on November, 15. The reactions have been very warm, and I'm very
happy and proud to see that there are almost 6000 visits in only three
months and a half. Thanks to all of you!
1, I had the big honour to be appointed as Italian Representative
of BGI, the older European fan club and one of the most important Bee
Gees appreciation society.
