Memorable performance by the Bee Gees Gold attracts fans to concert series
■ By Susan Carrier / Contributed
The Historic Hemet Theatre was host to yet another sold-out show on Saturday July 14, with a Tribute to The Bee Gees featuring Bee Gees Gold.
The excitement began even before the first note as volunteers circulated flyers announcing the concerts for the third season of the Tribute Mania concert series. Before the night was over, dozens of fans secured their seats for shows through the end of the year.
As the music began, the dance floor filled, from the disco classics to the slow ballads. By the end of the night, the floor was packed with cheering fans, dancing and singing along to lyrics burned into their memory decades ago.
This was Bee Gees Gold’s second visit to HHT, with an even larger audience this time as word had spread about the incredible performance delivered by this Las Vegas group. After the show, dozens of fans stayed to meet the band and pose for photos, fondly reminiscing about the disco era of their youth.
Meanwhile, it was announced that the Tribute to the Eagles coming up on August 4 has already sold out – a full three weeks ahead. Tickets are still available for the last concert of the season on August 18, a Tribute to Abba featuring Abba Fab.
