Gibb brings Bee Gee’s disco fever to Glasto’s legends slot

Barry Gibb brought some Sunday afternoon fever to the legends slot at Glastonbury Festival when he entertained a huge crowd with Bee Gees hits “Stayin’ Alive”, “How Deep is Your Love”, “Night Fever” and “Tragedy”.

The songs all featured on the soundtrack to “Saturday Night Fever”, released 40 years, and festival goers at the Pyramid Stage were dressed up and ready to play homage to the movie and music that defined disco.

“Stayin’ Alive”, the first of a string of hits Gibbs played from the movie, had the whole field of revelers and the stage’s security team disco dancing in the afternoon sunshine.

Gibb formed the Bee Gees in 1958 with his two brothers Robin and Maurice, who have both died. The group has sold more than 220 million records.

The Sunday afternoon “legends” slot has become one of the most popular at the festival, and previous occupants including Dolly Parton and Lionel Ritchie have drawn huge audiences and seen record sales surge after appearing.
