“How can you mend a broken heart?” Break the “Saturday Night Fever” and come to the Athens Theatre in DeLand to see one of two performances of “Bee Gees Now!” at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 9.
“Whether you’re a brother or whether you’re a mother,” this show will make you feel like you are watching a Gibb Brothers performance. So come and experience an incredible technical, theatrical production that will touch your senses and have you feeling like a “Boogie Child.”
The Bee Gees, who are known for their tight three-part high harmonies and disco anthems, wrote more than 1,000 songs, sold more than 220 million records worldwide, won 12 Grammy Awards, and have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
As brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb pumped out hit after hit, people across the globe turned up the volume. With seven No. 1 songs and more than a dozen Billboard sensations they wrote for other artists, it is no wonder that their music helped define a generation.
“Bee Gees Now!” re-creates these harmonies that became the soundtrack to the 1970s, so come enjoy hit songs that include “How Deep Is Your Love,” “Jive Talkin’,” “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart,” “Night Fever,” “You Should Be Dancing,” “Too Much Heaven,” “I Started a Joke,” “I’ve Gotta Get a Message to You” and “Stayin’ Alive.”
Tickets cost $35 for preferred reserved seating (first five rows center orchestra and two rows balcony), and $30 for general reserved seating. A $3-per-ticket processing charge and 6.5-percent sales tax will be added to each purchase.
