“The Bee Gees—Barry, Robin and Maurice—were international musical icons who helped make ‘Saturday Night Fever’ an emblem of 1970s pop culture,” said Neil Portnow, president/CEO of The Recording Academy. “With expert harmonies, undeniable groove and a personal charisma matching their onstage persona, the iconic band of brothers defined not just a genre, but a generation. I'm looking forward to celebrating one of the most famous soundtracks ever produced and reliving ‘Saturday Night Fever,’ once again.”
“The Bee Gees created many of pop music’s most memorable anthems and to be able to gather some of music's brightest lights together to salute this great legacy is very exciting to me,” said Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of AEG Ehrlich Ventures. “Presenting new versions of these great songs promises an evening of true highlights, both for the artists themselves and millions of music fans. I’m proud to share a 42-year connection with Barry and his brothers and look forward to helping to create an amazing night of music and memories.”
