Bee Gees star Robin Gibb is to play his first solo concert in the U.K. at a charity fundraiser next month (Jul08) - in honour of the 'forgotten heroes' of World War II.
The pop star has signed up to headline a memorial gig to pay tribute to the 55,000 soldiers from the British Royal Air Force Bomber Command who died fighting in the conflict.
The event, which is being held by The Heritage Foundation to raise cash for an official memorial in London, is due to take place in the capital's Royal Windsor racecourse on 16 July (08).
Gibb admits the cause has been close to his heart for some time, and he is "disgraced" by the way war veterans have been treated after serving their country.
He says, "This is a subject I have felt quite passionate about for a long time.
"I have always regarded the men who flew the bombers as heroic characters - and it seems just incredible that, 63 years after the war, there is still no official memorial to commemorate their achievement.
"The men that died and those who still survive brought peace and democracy to the whole of Europe. Millions of us owe a great deal to them and we should all be proud of what they achieved.
"The memorial, which will be a major site in London, will not be a celebration of war, it will be a sincere gesture of respect for the sacrifice these men made for us. Our official neglect of these men has been disgraceful."
He adds, "It will be a special day for me in many ways. It will be the first time I've ever performed solo in Britain."
