Robin Gibb Set to Perform After 'Beating Cancer'

Former Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb will return to the stage next month to perform a new classical composition after telling a British newspaper he is "beating cancer."

Gibb wrote on his personal blog that he'll perform his Titanic Requiem -- a tribute to victims of the Titanic disaster --  during a concert in London on April 10. The composition commemorates the April 1912 sinking of the Titanic that killed more than 1,500 people. 

Robin Gibb Reveals Treatment for Serious Illness

The 62-year-old Gibb was hospitalized late last year for stomach and
colon problems, but told the BBC early last month that he had made a "spectacular" recovery and was putting on weight after a serious illness during which his colon had to be removed. But the singer recently told Britain's Sunday Mirror, "I am beating cancer and I can't wait to carry on with my work." 

Gibb was also quoted as saying that his wife deserved a lot of credit for helping with his recovery. "I could not have done it without Dwina. She has never left my side and is a wonderful person," he told the Mirror.
