The Bee Gees are ready to get Irish fans dancing at the RDS in Dublin.

The Bee Gees, one of the top five most successful artists of all time, in rehearsals at the RDS in Dublin ahead of their concert. The Bee Gees were the first act to write and produce six straight number one singles, and the first composers to have five songs in the top ten at the same time.  

Boyzone's Ronan Keating and his wife Yvonne were among those who turned up to watch the band in rehearsal at the RDS in Dublin. 

Ahead of their Dublin show, Colm Connolly travelled to London to meet the brothers Maurice, Robin and Barry who spoke about how they managed to stay together for over thirty years. 

As Barry Gibb explains,

There's something special about what we do when we do it together.

However successful their careers, their lives have been touched by tragedy by the death of their brother Andy in 1988 and the concert at the RDS will include a tribute to him.

The Bee Gees played the RDS Arena in Dublin on 29 August 1998.
