On Thursday 26 September 1974 an Ansett plane touched down at Canberra Airport carrying a global musical phenomenon.

The Bee Gees were in the nation’s capital for two days as part of their sold out ‘Mr Natural’ tour of Australia. Tickets for their first Canberra concert on 26 September had sold out in one day, so another concert was announced for the 27th. They had performed one concert each in Brisbane and Adelaide and would leave Canberra for Melbourne and four concerts at Festival Hall.

Tickets cost $5.50 and $6.50 and The Bee Gees played two concerts each night at the Canberra Theatre – one at 6:00 pm, the other at 8:30 pm.
