Official Opening of Bee Gees Way

Home > Brisbane > Valentines Day | Music
Event:
A must-see themed walkway
Brothers Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb grew up on the Redcliffe Peninsula and it's here that global music phenomena the Bee Gees was born. The band are now legends of rock and roll history, having sold over two hundred million albums.

Renowned also for their songwriting, many of their songs have been made famous by other artists including Islands in the Stream by Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton, Immortality by Celine Dion and Chain Reaction by Diana Ross. They may be equally remembered by some for their fashion sense!

In tribute to the Bee Gees and their extraordinary career, and to mark the region's place in the band's history, Moreton Bay Regional Council are opening a themed walkway dedicated to the Bee Gees and their remarkable journey. Bee Gees Way will be located between Redcliffe Parade and Sutton Street, Redcliffe.

The walkway opening is set for February 14th, 2013 - what better way to spend Valentine's Day than by celebrating the band that bought us romantic classics such as How Deep Is Your Love, More Than a Woman and How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, and an album entitled Love Songs.

Barry Gibb had a direct hand in the curation of the walkway, personally selecting the photos, captions and stories used. And after twenty years Barry is returning to Redcliffe on Valentine's Day for the opening of Bee Gees Way and to unveil the life-size statue of the music superstar band ay 2.00pm. Barry's visit coincides with his 2013 Mythology concert tour of Australia.

It's great that their contribution to music is being recognised and marked, but such a shame that Barry is the only surviving Bee Gee.

To me, the Gibb brothers contributed more to music and certainly more beautiful, wonderfull memories through my life time, and I'm sure millions of others as well. God bless Barry's three brothers who we all so dearly love and miss. We will treasure you forever Barry....
