Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb To Co-Headline Bluesfest 2017

UPDATE 20/12/16: Barry Gibb has cancelled his 2017 Australian tour, as well as his appearance at Bluesfest.

UPDATE 02/12/16: Neil Young has cancelled his appearance at Bluesfest 2017.

UPDATE: Barry Gibb has also announced an Australian headline tour for 2017.

ORIGINAL STORY: It’s the lineup that keeps on giving, and today Bluesfest has added Bee Gees legend Barry Gibb to its 2017 lineup.

Following a massive announcement that Neil Young will headline the festival, organisers have added another big drawcard, announcing that Gibb will co-headline the festival.

Like Young, this will be the first time Gibb has ever played Bluesfest, bringing with him decades of Bee Gees hits and a new solo album.

Gibb recently released his first solo album, which is the first new material from him since the Bee Gees final studio album was released back in 2001. It’s also his first solo album in 32 years.

Gibb will close out Bluesfest on Easter Monday, 17th March April. He’ll follow a plethora of amazing acts Santana, Mary J. Blige, Mavis Staples and more.

You can check out the full lineup, below.
