He has one of the most recognisable voices of all time. He is the founding member of group that dominated music charts for decades and took disco to higher planes. He is also one of the most successful songwriters ever.

BARRY GIBB, surviving member of the Bee Gees, will perform at the 2013 Mission Estate Concert on February 23, 2013 in honour of his brothers and a lifetime of music.

James Erskine, Chairman of SEL, is delighted to announce Gibb will headline this entertainment extravaganza, also starring American singer/songwriter CAROLE KING (I Feel The Earth Move; It’s Too Late) and the fabulous WELLINGTON INTERNATIONAL UKULELE ORCHESTRA.

The Mission Estate Concert is an annual highlight on the entertainment calendar. Held in the spectacular grounds of New Zealand’s oldest winery, it’s a unique opportunity to experience a world class line up of musicians while enjoying Mission Estate’s award-winning wines.

Gibb’s setlist -- in tribute to the unparalleled lifetimes in music created by Barry and his brothers, Maurice and Robin -- is sure to be a magical and emotional concert experience, drawing from every era of the timeless catalogue and huge international success achieved by Barry and his brothers.

With his younger brothers, twins Robin and Maurice, Barry formed the Bee Gees.

The citation says "Only Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney have outsold the Bee Gees”.

Their astonishing catalogue of hits includes To Love Somebody, Massachusetts, I've Gotta Get a Message to You, I Started a Joke, Lonely Days, How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?, Jive Talkin,' Nights on Broadway, If I Can't Have You, You Should Be Dancing, Stayin' Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, Night Fever, More Than a Woman, Emotion, Too Much Heaven, Tragedy, Islands in the Stream and Spicks and Specks.

This promises to be one of the most memorable occasions in all that time, and will be a special night to remember.”
