Spirits Having Flown Tour

No dia 7 de julho de 1979 cerca de 56 mil fãs e 400 seguranças no Dodger Stadium na Spirits Having Flown Tour.

Eles alugaram um Boeing 707 com 55 assentos que tem o custo de 1 milhão de dólares com o logo da turnê personalizado.

Turnê começou dia 28 de junho de 1979 e foi até 7 de outubro de 1979 fazendo 47 shows no total, em 38 cidades.

Nessa época as concessionárias de TV lucravam cerca de 3000 dólares a cada minuto com programas relacionados a Bee Gees.

Devido a grande popularidade deles no momento, precauções foram tomadas, eles tinham “bases” em 5 cidades, ou seja, eles voariam para fazer o show e imediatamente após voltavam para a base.

Barry tomava alguns goles de chá antes dos shows.
