Emperors Palace has “Night Fever” with the month long Bee Gees Tribute Show


18 March 2014


From 4 to 26 April 2014, the Odeon Showbar at Emperors Palace will stage a tribute show to the Bee Gees - 1997’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and one of the best-selling groups of all time. Paul Buckby, Luciano Zuppa and Mark Richardson will team-up to reproduce the sounds and incredible harmonies performed by the brothers Gibb.

Paul Buckby is well known to audiences and currently stars in the hit television series “Isidingo”, having carved a niche for himself in all avenues of the entertainment industry. Together with Clive Rodel, Paul developed the original show “Immortality - The Bee Gees”, from which this current production has emerged. Paul will be joined on stage by Luciano Zuppa, best known for his alternative contribution to music and theatre, and in particular his potent Freddie Mercury performance in the smash hit “Queen at the Opera”. Completing the trio will be Mark Richardson, a seasoned all-round theatre performer who has starred in numerous musical productions throughout his career.

The Bee Gees Tribute Show will highlight the distinctive falsetto and melodic trademark sounds associated with the group. Audience members can look forward to the early, heady ballads such as “I Started a Joke” and “Massachusetts” before surrendering to the hits of the disco era chart toppers like “Night Fever” and “Jive Talking” from “Saturday Night Fever”.

This soundtrack breathed new life into a genre almost dead on its knees. When asked about taking on the personas of such musical masters, Paul Buckby comments, “Barry Gibb once said that the Bee Gees would like to be remembered for their music long after they had gone. So we are not trying to fill the shoes of the Bee Gees, we’re just lifting our hats!”

The Bee Gees Tribute Show will start on 4 April in the Odeon Showbar and will be performed every Friday and Saturday night at 20h00 until 26 April 2014. Tickets are R80 per person and groups can pre-book booths that accommodate up to 5 people for R400.
