Bee Gees star Robin Gibb has undergone further surgery following a sustained illness, a publicist said Wednesday.
Gibb is recovering in a London hospital after intestinal surgery over the weekend and has been forced to cancel a number of commitments, publicist Doug Wright said.
Gibb is slated to attend the Royal Philharmonics premiere performance of The Titanic Requiem in London on April 10, and will perform a new song, Dont Cry Alone.
Gibb, 62, was hospitalized late last year for stomach and colon problems but told the BBC last month he was making a good recovery. He did not disclose the nature of his illness, but said a growth on his colon had been removed.
Album due soon
Aerosmith has reunited with longtime producer Jack Douglas and the band says it will release a new album in three months.
