Organised by Gibb’s twin brother Robin, the tribute is to be held in the US next year.
Star of hit film ‘Saturday Night Fever’ John Travolta has been asked to host the event that will raise money for the Gibb Family Foundation. The foundation helps charities such as the Diabetes Research Institute and National Drug Abuse Council in the US.
:”Maurice loved life,” Robin explained to the BBC.”We want to celebrate his life and talent the best way we know how – through music.”
Robin is also working on a tribute album for Maurice, set to feature artist like [a]Alicia Keys and the Black Eyed Peas performing [a][/a] classics.
Gibb died following surgery on his intestines in January last year from a heart attack.
