Bluesfest is on a roll, announce Bee Gees legend Barry Gibb as 2017 co-headliner
The Bee Gees’ legendary Barry Gibb is the latest act to be added to the 2017 Bluesfest lineup.
Adding to the lineup that already includes Patti Smith, Santana, Mary J. Blige, and The Doobie Brothers, Gibb is set to bring his In The Now tour to Australian audiences, following the release of his new album of the same name. It’s his second solo release, and the first album of new material since The Bee Gee’s final record in 2001.
He was previously here touring back in 2013 on the Mythology tour, and like that tour he’s also going to be hitting up a number of dates around the country. Check out the full run of dates below.
Gibb’s career spans more than 50 years, both as a solo artist and the creative leader of Australia’s biggest selling recording group, The Bee Gees.
Bluesfest takes place on the Easter Long Weekend at Tyagarah Tea Tree farm. Tickets are on sale now, get your mitts on them here. Scope the full updated lineup below.
