The Bee Gees: Return Home

4BC & The Bee Gees: A worldwide unveil for the Bee Gees statue at Redcliffe is set to be uncovered by Barry Gibb to honour his brothers and band, The Bee Gees,  this February 14th. 

Multi-award winning singer-songwriter Barry Gibb will return home to Queensland’s Moreton Bay Region on February 14 to unveil a tribute to the phenomenal career of the Bee Gees.

Moreton Bay Region Mayor Allan Sutherland said Barry would officially open Bee Gees Way - a walkway dedicated to the achievements of the Gibb brothers - and unveil a life-size statue at 2pm.

"It is a huge honour to welcome Barry back to his coastal home town of Redcliffe for this special event," he said.

"According to Barry, the Moreton Bay Region is the true birthplace of the Bee Gees.

"It was in Redcliffe in the late 1950s that the three young brothers gathered around a microphone and for the first time performed using a name now famous around the globe.

"It is therefore extremely fitting that a themed walkway be named after the brothers to mark Moreton Bay Region's place in the remarkable story of the Bee Gees.

"The fact that Barry has personally curated the walkway – selecting the photos and penning the stories and captions – makes Bee Gees Way a must-see for any fan of music."

Bee Gees Way is located between Redcliffe Parade and Sutton Street, Redcliffe.  The walkway overlooks beautiful Moreton Bay, near the site of the Redcliffe Jetty where the brothers used to swim, fish and play.

Mayor Sutherland said Barry was excited to be returning to the Moreton Bay Region.

"This part of the world holds many dear memories for Barry and he is looking forward to sharing the opening of Bee Gees Way with fans, family and friends," Mayor Sutherland said.

Radio stations 4BC and 4BH are Moreton Bay Regional Council's official media partners for the opening of Bee Gees Way.

With a career that has spanned more than five decades Barry Gibb stands as one of the most prolific singer/songwriter/producers of the modern era.

As co-founder and creative leader of the Bee Gees, Barry along with his brothers Maurice and Robin represent one of the most successful vocal groups in rock and roll history, having sold more than 200 million albums to date.

The opening of Bee Gees Way coincides with Barry's Mythology concert tour of Australia and New Zealand.

Redcliffe will be on Bee Gee alert next month - Barry Gibb is visiting to dedicate a walkway and statue for the famous band. Mayor Allan Sutherland joins Peter and Mary from 4BC Breakfast to make the big announcement.

4BC Afternoons will be taking you through the day with live interviews and live Broadcast from the day. For now post your tributes to the band below.

  • My first pay when I was 15 I went straight out and bought a copy of the BeeGees top 10 hit Single Jive Talking. My heart still skips a beat now when I hear it on the radio. And if no one's watching I'll do a little disco dancing too!
    Your songs bring great joy. Thank you!

  • It's like Christmas waiting for next week's concert @ Boondall! My parents passed on their love of these amazing boys to me as a child in the 70's, so I've carried the tradition on to my own son in the 21st century. Bless you Barry for creating music to laugh, cry and love with.

  • I have grown up with the Bee Gees music, I would have been about 4 or 5 when my mum started listening to their records in the early 70's. I still play their music 40 yrs later, in fact I have the latest Mythology cd in my car, love to turn it up and try sing along! The Bee Gees are legends! Long Live Disco!!

  • I have loved the Bee Gees since I first heard their song "Run To Me" and I adored their younger brother Andy for about 35 odd years, Andy was my pin-up idol as a teenager and I dreamed of marrying this gorgeous man.I was a huge huge fan of Saturday Night Fever and disco will live in my heart forever.
    Thank you for the beautiful memoriesand youre music xxxx
