In a WORLD FIRST, the Best of the Bee Gees will be joined onstage with an original member of the Bee Gees - Colin “Smiley” Petersen.
Colin “Smiley” Petersen was the first non-Gibb brother to become an official member of the Bee Gees. He played drums on the albums Bee Gees 1st, Horizontal, Idea, Odessa and Cucumber Castle. Producing the number one singles Massachusetts, To Love Somebody, I Started a Joke and New York Mining Disaster among many more. The Gibb brothers regarded his playing as essential to their sound.
