Kimberley Nolder Atlantic City Celebrity Headlines Examiner
There are practically no words to describe Barry Gibb's show at theWells Fargo Center in  Philadelphia last night. Barry has taken on his first solo tour with the grace, humility, and never-ending talent that only one who is called a true legend can embody. Although his brothers Andy, Maurice, and Robin were only there in spirit, the vision they all shared came to life in the arena. With legions of fans that would follow him to the ends of the earth, Barry Gibb has remained the most humble and grateful of men.
To say the concert was amazing or incredible would not do it justice. Fans from all over the world traveled to see the man whose music has impacted their lives in some way. They truly felt like they were getting an opportunity to live their dream while watching Barry live his. Choosing songs for his show from his vast catalogue must have been a daunting task. Barry’s career has spanned so many years and there are so many hits to choose from.
Although their time as a group has passed, the Bee Gees were celebrated like never before with pictures and videos displayed throughout the evening. Barry's son Stephen and Maurice's daughter Samantha shared the stage and hooked the audience with their own talent. The band and backgrounds singers were so in-tune with each other that it felt like they have been playing together all of their lives.
The Gibb family has shown the world that although life can change unexpectedly there is always an opportunity to harness the memories and love shared over the years and to continue living the dream the brothers once shared.
The Barry Gibb Mythology tour is not one to be missed!

Performed by Bee Gees


The MusicWhen the Bee Gees debut US single was released in April 1967, a lot of people thought it was The Beatles masquerading as another band. Even the name Bee Gees was read as code for “Beatles Group.” But within a year, brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb established themselves not only as hit makers in their own right, but as chart rivals to the Fabs. “New York Mining Disaster 1941,” the first of thirty-some hits, is one of those rare pop songs in which the title never appears in the lyrics. Most people still refer to it by its subtitle “Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones.” Inspired by the Aberfan mining disas…

THE MEANING OF SONGSCollaborator:Stephan Koenig ALONE (1997) BARRY GIBB: What the song's really about is that little child inside. It's that abstract feeling we all have that no matter how close or how many relatives we have or how many people around us we love, we still feel alone. There's an aloneness about all of us. That "How do I, why is it always end up alone?" Well, I'm not alone, but I might feel alone, that no one really thinks the way I do. I guess that's because everybody's unique in their own way.
