Moreton Bay Region’s very own home-grown music sensation, The Bee Gees Barry Gibb has announced an early 2017 album tour to celebrate his long-awaited solo album ‘In The Now’, released earlier this month on 7th October.

‘In The Now’ is a Collaborative Triumph for the Gibb’s Family

The last remaining Bee Gee’s brothers’ new solo endeavour entitled ‘In The Now’ has been a long time coming, with fans waiting 30 years for more songs written by Barry Gibb since his last solo effort.

It is the first album featuring all new material since the Bee Gees’ final 2001 studio album and the first solo album put together through collaboration with his talented sons, Stephen and Ashley, who co-wrote 12 of the songs on the new album.

The Bee Gees Redcliffe Roots…

Though Barry lives overseas these days, he still considers Redcliffe home and the peninsula certainly hasn’t forgotten him or his brothers, commemorating The Bee Gees indelible mark on the local and international music scene and through erecting Bee Gees Way in honour of all 3 Gibb’s brothers.

The colourful Bee Gees Way connecting Redcliffe Parade and Sutton Street, pays tribute to Barry, Robin and Maurice with murals of the band as young boys, statues of them grown-up and a glass print of the Bee Gees’ first contract, along with other touching inclusions.

“Moreton Bay Regional Council has allowed me to share even more memories of my time in Redcliffe, stories from different eras of our lives and career, and honour my brothers Robin, Maurice and Andy,” Barry explained.

The Bee Gees Barry Gibb unveiled Stage 2 of the laneway personally as part of Redcliffe Festival 2015.

Redcliffe Reminiscence – The Bayside Paradise where The Bee Gees Began

Fond memories of his childhood bayside stomping ground include the Redcliffe Speedway, a local institution which exists only in memory now, resonating close to Barry’s heart as one of the first gig locations the Bee Gees performed at. The brothers would play to crowds of people who would throw money onto the track.

“We sang through the PA system and people threw money onto the track. Redcliffe became the birthplace of our name – the Bee Gees,” recalled Barry.

The Bee Gees first music contract was signed on the family’s kitchen table in Redcliffe.

Since 1958, The Bee Gees Barry Gibb has called Redcliffe a paradise, so why not visit Moreton Bay Region’s peninsula to see for yourself what draws the last remaining Bee Gees brother back time and time again despite all the years which have passed since The Bee Gees departure from our shores in 1967.

“My memories of my time in Redcliffe are as vivid today as when I was running around barefoot with my brothers exploring its many treasures,” said Barry.
