PITTSBURGH— With nine Grammys and more than 200 million records sold, the legendary sounds of The Bee Gees have stood the test of time. Join the Pittsburgh Symphony for “Stayin’ Alive One Night of the Bee Gees” on July 17 at 7:30 p.m. in Heinz Hall.
“Stayin’ Alive” delivers the songs and sights of a full Bee Gees playlist, including blockbusters like “Night Fever,” “Jive Talkin’,” “You Should be Dancing” and “How Deep Is Your Love.” This multimedia experience offers big screen video clips, photos and dazzling imagery that will take you back to the 1970s.
The evening features Tony Mattina as Barry Gibb (lead/backing vocals and guitar), Todd Sharman as Robin Gibb (lead/backing vocals), Joseph Janisse as Maurice Gibb (backing vocals and keyboard), Tom Wolf on drums and percussion, and Chris Mullen on bass. Led by Resident Conductor Fawzi Haimor, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra joins the band to present the excitement of a live Bee Gees concert to a new audience.
Tickets, ranging in price from $25 to $75, can be purchased by calling the Heinz Hall box office at 412-392-4900 or visiting pittsburghsymphony.org.
