Maurice, Barry and Robin Gibb - better known as the Bee Gees - have announced they will begin a three-month European tour in May.

Concert dates are scheduled in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Switzerland, Austria, Holland and Great Britain.The tour was prompted by the success of the Bee Gees' best-selling "ESP" album this year, said spokesman Sean Mahoney. "ESP" marked the group's biggest success since 1977, when the Bee Gees recorded the musical soundtrack for the film "Saturday Night Fever."
