More than a tribute concert, How Deep Is Your Love is a soulful homage to the Gibb brothers, whose vision and versatility transcends the ordinary and whose talents contributed to a musical legacy unparalleled in the history of pop.
From humble beginnings in Queensland, singing between races from the back of a flat-bed truck at Redcliffe Speedway, the Bee Gees went on to pen an astonishing 970 songs, selling over 220 million albums.
Embracing everything from blue- eyed soul to country blues, R&B to disco, the Gibbs also wrote chart-topping albums for Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand and Kenny Rogers. They have been covered by artists as diverse as Elvis Presley, Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, Nina Simone and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Hear Australia's finest singers perform their versions of To Love Somebody, Stayin’ Alive, Words, Islands in the Stream and other Gibb Brothers classics spanning four decades, backed by the Deep Love Orchestra.
Truly a rare moment in Australian music history, How Deep is Your Love is an unforgettable one- off salute to one of the world’s most successful songwriting partnerships.
