Grammys announce Bee Gees tribute concert

Just two days after the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards, The Recording Academy, AEG Ehrlich Ventures, and CBS will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the landmark soundtrack to the film Saturday Night Fever by presenting Stayin’ Alive: A GRAMMY Salute To The Music Of The Bee Gees.

Previous GRAMMY nominee Andra Day, five-time GRAMMY winner Celine Dion, multi-platinum pop-funk band DNCE, previous GRAMMY nominee Nick Jonas, previous GRAMMY nominee Tori Kelly, ten-time GRAMMY winner John Legend, current GRAMMY nominee Demi Lovato, two-time GRAMMY winners Little Big Town, two-time GRAMMY winners and current nominees Pentatonix, and four-time GRAMMY winner Keith Urban, will pay tribute to five-time GRAMMY winners and Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients the Bee Gees.

Seven-time GRAMMY winner and Bee Gees co-founder Barry Gibb, who released a solo album late last year, will also be on hand to perform a selection of hits from Saturday Night Fever—Soundtrack, which won Album Of The Year at the 21st Annual GRAMMY Awards and was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame in 2004. Additional performers will be announced soon.

The live concert taping will be held Tuesday, February 14th at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Tickets start at $25 via axs.com. VIP packages and group sales are also available at 877.234.8425 or tickets@aegworldwide.com. The special will broadcast on the CBS Television Network later this year.

“The Bee Gees—Barry, Robin, and Maurice—were international musical icons who helped make Saturday Night Fever an emblem of 1970s pop culture,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “With expert harmonies, undeniable groove, and a personal charisma matching their on-stage persona, the iconic band of brothers defined not just a genre, but a generation. I’m looking forward to celebrating one of the most famous soundtracks ever produced and reliving Saturday Night Fever, once again.”

“The Bee Gees created many of pop music’s most memorable anthems and to be able to gather some of music’s brightest lights together to salute this great legacy is very exciting to me,” said Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of AEG Ehrlich Ventures. “Presenting new versions of these great songs promises an evening of true highlights, both for the artists themselves and millions of music fans. I’m proud to share a 42-year connection with Barry and his brothers and look forward to helping to create an amazing night of music and memories.”

Stayin’ Alive: A GRAMMY Salute To The Music Of The Bee Gees continues the tradition of previous Emmy-winning TV specials presented by The Recording Academy, AEG Ehrlich Ventures, and CBS: Stevie Wonder: Songs In The Key Of Life—An All-Star GRAMMY Salute, The Beatles: The Night That Changed America—A GRAMMY Salute, and Sinatra 100—An All-Star GRAMMY Concert.
