Marion: 'Although not the best hall for concerts we've enjoyed a great show again tonight!
It was the first show after the break and as usual during the tour sometimes little changes are made in the show.
I now for instance noticed the group had included next to Songbird, another song The Bee Gees themselves never did perform live on stage: Living Together.' Wow very nice done!!

Fan reviews Wiesbaden
IBG, immer wieder gerne zu hören und sehen. Die 3 Jungs waren einfach super.
Blue Weaver der Orginal Keyboarder der The Bee Gees von 1975 bis 1980 auch bei Live-Auftritten begleitet hatte, tat sein übriges dazu.
Ich hatte das Musical schon einmal in Mainz gesehen und werde es immer wieder gerne wiederholen. Vergessen möchte ich aber auch nicht die Tanzgruppe auch an diese ein dickes Lob und allen anderen Musikern.
IBG, always like to hear and see. The 3 guys were just great.
Blue Weaver the original keyboardist of the Bee Gees who accompanied them from 1975 to 1980 also at live shows, did very well too.
I had seen the musical before in Mainz and want to see it again and again. I won't forget the dance group and all other musicians who were great too.
Bin total begeistert. Besonders haben mir die Songs gefallen, die nur mit der Gitarre begleitet wurden. Da kamen die Stimmen richtig gut rüber.
I'm totally impressed. Specially I loved the songs which were accompanied only by guitar. The voices came over really well.
Stimmlich kommen die drei Jungs den Originalen fast gleich , das gilt für alle Höhen und Tiefen.
Tolle Musik und guter Sound. Die Show, tänzerische Darbietung und das Bühnenbild sind ok, der Sprecher stellt sich m.E. selbst zu sehr in den Mittelpunkt.
Vocally the three guys almost get the originals, this goes for the high and the low voices.
Great music and good sound. The show, the dance performances and the stage are ok, the speaker I think turns himself too much in the center.
Geile Show Wiesbaden. Schade nur das die Bässe oftmals die Gesangstimmen der Jungs total unterbuttert hatten.
Wenn die Bässe mal weg waren, konnte man dem Ohrenschmaus voll genießen.
Great show in Wiesbaden. A pity I hardly could enjoy the voices as the bass sounds were often too loud.
March 11th. Birthday Blue Weaver

Massachusetts Tour 2015 - Thank you to all the audiences in Germany who have made it such a pleasure to play.
I am really lost for words, I never ever expected to get standing ovations, I'm sure it's as much for the Egiziano Brothers, Band and Ladies as for myself...
Blue enjoys playing BG music again, here with guitarist Ivan
Vielen Dank, es hat mir große Freude bereitet, vor so großartigem Publikum in Deutschland zu spielen. Mir fehlen die Worte.
Niemals hätte ich 'standing ovation' erwartet. Danke den Egizianobrüdern, der Band und den Sängerinnen, die dies möglich gemacht haben..
March 15th. Crailsheim, Hirtenwiesenhalle
March 19th. Chemnitz, Stadthalle
Dennis Bryon, who was drummer in the original Bee Gees Band, visited the Italian Bee Gees and their show in Germany for some days. He might join the IBG and Blue Weaver next year on tour!!

Marion / GSI:
It's been my wish for many years and slowly we are getting there:
To have the former Bee Gees Band together again and hopefully playing together again on stage.-
This week ( from March 17, 2015) Dennis and his wife Kayte Bryon visited Germany and joined Blue Weaver to watch some of the Massachusetts shows Blue is doing with The Italian Bee Gees at the moment.
Hopefully this will result in a future cooperation on stage with The Italian Bee Gees and Blue....
Dennis Bryon was part of The Bee Gees like Blue Weaver and Alan Kendall in the most successful period of The Bee Gees.
Tonight in Berlin Dennis is doing a short performance.

Marion / GSI: The tourbus made the 8 hours journey from Berlin to Mettmann (near Koln) where we met everyone in the late afternoon at the hotel.
That same evening there's no concert but instead........ we all together celebrated the birthday of Anja Wange in the bar of the hotel gathered around (of course!!) the piano! Dancing, talking, but most of all: singing..... until very late in the night, what fun that was!!

Marion / GSI:
After the birthday party of last night everyone did take it easy today as tonight there would be another concert to give. We all stayed a bit in and around the hotel and in the early afternoon we all gathered in the lobby to go by bus to the next venue.

Marion / GSI After the concert and Meet and Greet we all came together again in the restaurant to have a drink and a bite before the bus would bring us back to our hotel.
It was time for another tour break and the following day everyone went home for a few weeks.
Except for.... Roberto. We brought him to the Koln airport for his flight to England to do some gigs their with his other band Soul Pains.
