The Shenkman Arts Centre will be hosting three award winning tribute bands in April that will be paying homage to three of the biggest selling acts of the past 50 years. The Australian BeeGees will kick things off on Thursday, April 4 when they bring their popular Las Vegas revue to the Harold Shenkman Hall stage.

One of the most successful and adored acts in musical history is recreated live in concert with hits like “Staying Alive”, “You Should Be Dancing”, “How Deep Is Your Love”, and “Jive Talkin” bound to get you out of your seat and dancing in the aisle.

A limited number of tickets are still available at the Shenkman Art Centre’s online box office.

The following day the Bruce Springsteen tribute band Tommy Youngsteen will be in town to perform Springsteen’s classic 1984 album “Born in the USA” along with all his greatest hits, featuring a 10 piece all-star band.
