The Australian Bee Gees Show Host Performances Benefiting the American Red Cross Labor Day Weekend

The Australian Bee Gees Show Host Performances Benefiting the American Red Cross Labor Day Weekend  

The Australian Bee Gees ShowA Tribute to the Bee Gees and the Southern Nevada Chapter of the American Red Cross have partnered to host a series of special performances at Excalibur Hotel & Casino. This Labor Day weekend, a portion of proceeds from all ticket sales will benefit the American Red Cross. As people across the country prepare to celebrate Labor Day with fun-filled festivities, The Australian Bee Gees Show will encourage visitors to stay safe.

Michael Clift, who performs as Barry Gibb, said, “We are thrilled to take our partnership with the Red Cross to the next level and look forward to spreading the word about safe practices over the popular holiday weekend. The organization does so much locally and nationwide that we felt it was important to raise some money and give back to its cause.”

This is not the first time the American Red Cross and The Australian Bee Gees Show have joined forces. The two groups launched their partnership back in June after discovering a tie between the popular tune “Stayin’ Alive” and CPR. At 103 beats per minute, the disco hit’s tempo almost perfectly matches the recommended rate for performing hands-only CPR — 100 chest compressions per minute, with no mouth-to-mouth resuscitation necessary.

A high-energy production guaranteed to have audiences on the dance floor, The Australian Bee Gees Show features iconic classics that changed the sound of music including “You Should Be Dancing,” “Stayin’ Alive,” “To Love Somebody,” “Night Fever” and “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart,” among others.

Daryl Hall & John Oates Return To The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3

jointHardRocknewaeg










DARYL HALL & JOHN OATES

FRI AUG 2 & SAT AUG 3 AT 9PM

Tickets on-sale Friday at noon!

The number-one selling duo in music history, Daryl Hall and John Oates, will return to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for two nights of high energy and their greatest hits Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3. Tickets go on sale this Friday at noon.

Starting out as two devoted disciples of earlier soul greats, Daryl Hall & John Oates are soul survivors in their own right. They have become such musical influences on some of today’s popular artists that the September 2006 cover of Spin Magazine’s headline read: “Why Hall and Oates are the New Velvet Underground.” Their artistic fan base includes Rob Thomas, John Mayer, Brandon Flowers of the Killers, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie and MTV’s newest hipsters Gym Class Heroes who dubbed their tour “Daryl Hall for President Tour 2007.” One of the most sampled artists today, their impact can be heard everywhere from boy band harmonies, to neo-soul to rap-rock fusion.

Signed to Atlantic by Ahmet Ertegan in the 1970’s, Daryl Hall & John Oates have sold more albums than any other duo in music history. Their 1973 debut album, Abandoned Luncheonette, produced by Arif Mardin, yielded the Top 10 single, “She’s Gone,” which also went to #1 on the R&B charts when it was covered by Taveras. The duo recorded one more album with Atlantic, War Babies, (produced by Todd Rundgren) before they left and promptly signed to RCA. Their tenure at RCA would catapult the duo to international superstardom.

From the mid-’70s to the mid-’80s, the duo would score six #1 singles, including “Rich Girl” (also #1 R&B), “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (also #1 R&B), “Maneater” and “Out of Touch” from their six consecutive multi-platinum albums—’76’s Bigger Than Both of Us, ’80’s Voices, ’81’s Private Eyes, ‘82’s H2O, ‘83’s Rock N Soul, Part I and ‘84’s Big Bam Boom. The era would also produce an additional 5 Top 10 singles, “Sara Smile,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” “Say It Isn’t So” and “Method of Modern Love.”

Daryl also wrote the H&O single “Everytime You Go Away,” which singer Paul Young scored a number-one hit with a cover of the song in 1985.

That same year, Daryl and John, participated in the historic “We Are the World” session as well as closing the Live Aid show in Philadelphia.

By 1987, the R.I.A.A. recognized Daryl Hall and John Oates as the NUMBER-ONE SELLING DUO in music history, a record they still hold today.

On May 20, 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award during BMI’s 56th annual Pop Awards. The award has previously gone to the Bee Gees, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson, Willie Nelson, James Brown, Ray Davies, Carlos Santana and Dolly Parton.

In April of 2011, John Oates released his solo album, Mississippi Mile on Elektra RecordsPeople Magazine gave the album 3 out of 4 stars.  “[Mississippi Mile] has the opportunity to reach across the board – and that’s a winning formula.” – Nashville Lifestyles

Daryl released his solo album, Laughing Down Crying, on Verve Records on September 27th,  2011.  The album has received a lot of critical acclaim from the Huffington Post, Spinner and Pop Matters, who said: “With the songs that make up this fine collection of American soul and pop music, Hall proves that with the pen and at the mic, his voice is more than capable of reaching the depths and heights of emotional truth.”

Most recently as a duo, Daryl Hall & John Oates released their first box set, Do What You Want, Be What You Are: The Music of Daryl Hall & John Oates.  The box set marks the first comprehensive multi-CD, multi-label deluxe box set compilation ever assembled from their entire career’s work, four CDs containing 74 tracks (16 of them previously unreleased).

With the fortieth anniversary of their seminal second album, Abandoned Luncheonette, 2013 finds Daryl Hall and John Oates very much at the height of their powers making their own kind of soul, with a new generation of musicians recognizing not only their historic track record of success, but also their continuing influence and achievements.

Tickets, starting at $45 (plus applicable service fees), go on sale Saturday at noon at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com or charge-by-phone at 800.745.3000.
