The Bee Gees last night (March 20) played what they say will be their only live show of the year in the exclusive surroundings of the 300-seat BBC Radio Theater for an invited audience of media and contest winners. The 50-minute show was recorded for broadcast, and simultaneous Web cast, on the BBC's national soft-rock station, Radio 2, on March 31, two days before the U.K. release of the Gibb brothers' new Polydor album, "This Is Where I Came In." Material from that album formed the first part of the set, as the veteran trio and their band opened with the title track, due as a single in Britain on Monday (March 26). Four other new tunes -- the rocky "She Keeps On Coming," "Sacred Trust," "Wedding Day," and "Man In The Middle," the latter featuring Maurice Gibb on lead vocals -- were also played. In relaxed form throughout, the Bee Gees proceeded to delight the audience with a strong selection of seven hits from their epic 35-year career as international stars, including "Massachusetts," "I Started A Joke" and "How Deep Is Your Love." The crowd rose to its feet for spirited versions of "Jive Talkin'" and "You Should Be Dancing."
