Barry Gibb to Celebrate New LP With 360 Live-Stream Concert

Barry Gibb will host a live–streamed performance August 20th to celebrate the upcoming arrival of his new LP In the Now, the singer's first solo album since 1984's Now Voyager

The concert, set at Miami's Hit Factory Criteria, will feature a mix of Bee Gees classics alongside never-before-heard tracks from Gibb's new album. In the Now 360, which will stream live on YouTube, also allows fans to have total control of their viewer experience thanks to 360° virtual reality technology.

Gibb has also announced a contest for fans to win a trip to the Miami event, with those fans in attendance also taking part in a Q&A session. The In the Now 360 event streams August 20th at 7 p.m. EST. The day before the live-stream, In the Now will become available to preorder. 

 The live-stream takes place just over a week after the death of Gibb family matriarch Barbara Gibb, who died Friday night in Miami at the age of 95.
