Ailing Bee Gees star Robin Gibb has confirmed he will perform at the debut of his new classical material to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, despite his colon cancer fight.
The pop legend is currently undergoing intensive chemotherapy treatment to beat the disease.
The showcase of his Titanic Requiem, a classical piece he wrote with his son RJ in honour of the doomed cruise liner which sank on its maiden voyage in 1912, is set to take place next month (Apr12), but fans feared he would be too ill to take to the stage.
However, the star has announced he will definitely play his new song Don't Cry Alone at the concert at Central Hall in London's Westminster - insisting he feels up to the challenge.
In a statement, he writes, "RJ and myself are thrilled to see our Titanic Requiem Premiere performed in full at the Central Hall in Westminster.
"I feel great, and I'm particularly excited about performing this brand new song and to have such special guests joining me on stage with the Rpo makes this the realisation of a dream."
Classical singer Aled Jones and British choir girl Isabel Suckling will also perform alongside The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the show, which will take place on 11 April (12).
