“I’ve never seen a more professional tribute to the Bee Gees with those beautiful harmonies which are so difficult to achieve.  They have worked hard to reproduce the unique sound of my brothers.  So tastefully done. Absolutely brilliant and I didn’t want to leave. If you’re a Bee Gees fan, this is the concert for you.”   Lesley Evans (Gibb)

The Best of the Bee Gees Show brings a massive catalogue of mega-hits and first-hand stories from original Bee Gees drummer Colin “Smiley” Petersen to the Mackay Entertainment Convention Centre on Saturday 4 February 7.30pm.

Colin was a child drumming protégé, an actor with 3 international films under his belt before he was a teenager, and the first official non-Gibb band member.   He also shares screen time in multiple music clips (including America’s Ed Sullivan Show) and the 2021 Emmy nominated bio-pic, How Can You Mend A Broken Heart.

Essential to the Bee Gees sound, Colin was driving the evolution of the supergroup on stage and in the studio over four albums and #1 singles – Massachusetts, To Love Somebody, New York Mining Disaster, I Started A Joke and many more.

Colin says: “It’s wonderful that these incredible songs live on through this great show and I am thrilled to add another dimension by sharing my memories.”
The Best of the Bee Gees has brought global audiences hustling to their feet for more than two decades and also features Evan Webster (Barry Gibb), Russell Davey (Robin Gibb) and Greg Wain (Maurice Gibb).

It would be a Tragedy to miss this ultimate tribute celebrating an iconic set list of soaring, three-part harmonies and timeless classics – Saturday Night Fever, How Deep Is Your Love, Stayin’ Alive, Grease, Jive Talkin’, Spicks & Specks, Words, To Love Somebody, Massachusetts, I Started a Joke, I’ve Got to Get a Message to You, Too Much Heaven, You Should Be Dancing and others.

Please note - This is a tribute concert.
