A view for aching eyes, members of the group well into their '70s vibrated despite their strolling canes in tow.

Expectedly, the audience was made up primarily of the not-so-young. Three-city excursion

Except, certainly, some-- or perhaps most, otherwise all-- of the members of the crowd have possibly not seen the Bee Gees live, which is why the show has maybe offered the viewers such a surreal, unique experience.

The Las Vegas-based homage group consists of John Acosta, who executes as Barry Gibb; Taylor Sinquefield as Robin, and Jeff Celentano as Maurice.

As the group took a bow as well as stated their farewells, the crowd chanted for more, so Gees Gold came back with "Disaster," shooting up the stage with the hope as well as pledge to be back next year if the audience wanted them to.

THE TRIO delivered a surreal, once-in-a-lifetime experience. I[was]22 years old and it[was]my second hit in the Philippines.
Showcasing the Bee Gees' vocal harmony, the group then did a medley of "New York Mining Disaster 1941," "Too Much Heaven," "Guilty" and "Our Love (Don't Throw It All Away)" and ended their first set with "Lonely Days.".

The group performed "Jive Talkin'," "I Started a Joke," "Massachusetts," "To Love Somebody" and "Islands in the Stream," with "Barry" and "Robin" alternating as lead vocals.

Bee Gees Gold then brought the fever back with an energetic performance of "Staying Alive" and "You Should Be Dancing," which had the audience movin' and groovin'. It was, however, surprising to note that several youngsters were also spotted in the crowd, enjoying the music they and their parents grew up with.

For one night, the crowd at Midas Hotel and Casino on Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City, was transported back to the 1970s.

Midas Tent was transformed for a couple of hours into a disco hall from decades past, glowing with neon lights and reverberating with music that defined an era.


As soon as the group emerged on stage, the crowd was immediately mesmerized: This was the Bee Gees, all right. It felt like watching the real thing.

"This is for the younger Bee Gees fans!" Acosta said, segueing to later hits "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" and "Nights on Broadway.".

Nostalgia was indeed the order of the night as Acosta and his group performed one Bee Gees hit after another, opening with "Night Fever" and getting the crowd in the mood right away.

"Let's have a little emotion here," Acosta said before humming the high notes to "Emotion," following it with their "favorite Bee Gees song," "Fanny (Be Tender With My Love)," and then telling the audience an important message via "I've Gotta Get a Message to You"--"Hold on.".

The second set proved to be an even bigger hit to the audience as Bee Gees Gold returned to the stage wearing "Saturday Night Fever's" iconic crisp white suits to perform the brothers' biggest disco records.

Music fans would probably be aware of Acosta's earlier work. From their looks to the vocals and unmistakable falsetto, the men got the details down pat. iRocktography:music photojournalism/ Stephen Lavoie" width="620" height="413"/>THE TRIAD provided an unique, once-in-a-lifetime encounter. This was followed by "Grease," "I Just Wished to Be Your Everything" and "Shadow Dancing.".


By the time they reached "Just how Deep Is Your Love," the team asked the audience to hold the hands of those beside them, evoking smiles from the (already) lovestruck group

Ends up that Filipinos still have the high temperature that will make Bee Gees Gold survive for a very long time.

In a Facebook write shortly after their effective three-city concert tour in the nation, Acosta uploaded a picture of the cd cover of his old favorite, stating he was "feeling nostalgic after the tour. He belonged to the duo Acosta/Russell which popularized the songs "Don't Diminish" and also "Deep in My Heart" in the 1990s.

In a show referred to as "the utmost salute to among the globe's largest musical acts," Bee Gees Gold delivered to the viewers what it had actually guaranteed-- the encounter of seeing "the Brothers Gibb" in their prime carry out live.

Accelerating the group was "More Than a Woman," which started the spate of hand-waving as well as, later, happy dance from the more elderly participants of the audience.
