BOCA RATON, FL (July 12, 2019) –The Chris Evert Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic presented by Chase Private Client is excited to announce that one of the most successful artists of all-time, the legendary Barry Gibb, will perform at the Black Tie Gala held on Saturday, November 23 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club.
I am thrilled beyond words that this iconic artist will be performing at our 30th anniversary celebration,” stated Chris Evert. “This is a once in a life-time opportunity to hear some of the greatest hits of all time - LIVE!”

1979 Bee Gees concert at Dodger Stadium

During their 90-minute performance, the Bee Gees included more than a dozen of their Top 20 hits. During the concert, actress Barbra Streisand borrowed photographer George Rose’s camera and 400mm lens for a close-up look. Times pop music critic Robert Hilburn reported in the July 9, 1979, edition:
Thank goodness for the Bee Gees. I was beginning to think Dodger Stadium was jinxed. The ball club appears headed for its worst season since coming here from Brooklyn 21 years ago. The Bee Gees concert Saturday night, however, showed that the stadium can still field a winner. Maybe the team will get inspired now. The Bee Gees – Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb – sold out the place (56,000 tickets) and put on a classy, though conservative demonstration of why it is one of the biggest-selling record acts of the pop-rock era.



Dodger Stadium probably hasn't seen as many hits in one night since the ball club's pennant-winning drive last summer. The Bee Gees crammed all or part of 16 Top 20 singl…

Robert Stigwood -The man behind the Bee Gees

Robert Stigwood was born in Port Pirie, South Australia.
In the 1950s he moved to London, with only five pounds in his pocket.
Through a mixture of talent, charm, and bravado, and many a bottle of champagne,  he became renowned for his ability to pick and promote talent.
Within two decades Robert was the entertainment industry's most powerful tycoon, managing the careers of Cream and Eric Clapton and The Who.
In 1967, the Beatles manager Brian Epstein passed him a demo tape, made by three young singers from Australia - the Gibb brothers.
Stigwood loved them, signed them, and made them superstars.
Despite his many successes, there were also great crashes including a Chuck Berry tour which forced 'Stiggy' to declare bankruptcy.
Robert spent his later years living as a near-recluse on an estate on the Isle of Wight.
