The sole surviving member of the Bee Gees, eldest brother Barry Gibb, is bringing his critically acclaimed Mythology solo tour to the U.S. this spring. Having played legs in Britain, Ireland, and Australia, the show, which spans the Bee Gees' career, also features his son Stephen on guitar and Barry's late brother Maurice Gibb's daughter Samantha on vocals.
The upcoming mini-tour -- which marks Gibb's first ever official North American solo tour dates -- kicks off on May 15th in Boston, and hits Philadelphia; Wantaugh, New York; Chicago; and Concord, California, before wrapping on June 4th at L.A.'s Hollywood Bowl.
Family has always been incredibly important to the Gibb clan. Barry Gibb recalled how in 1966 the teenage Gibbs convinced their parents that pop stardom could only be achieved by sailing back to Britain from their adopted home in Australia: "It was very difficult for mum and dad to think, 'Well, hang on -- we're going to have to give up making a living in order to take this chance, in order to get back on a ship and sail five more weeks back across the world to England on the chance that our three sons think they could be stars.' But we told them, 'This is what we're going to do, mum and dad. This is what we're going to do, and you've got to go with us. You've got to do this with us."
