The remaining duo of the disco band Bee Gees is looking at performing in Malta next year.

"Hopefully, next year, I will bring Barry along," Robin Gibb said yesterday as he landed in Malta for the first time to take part in today's Malta Music Awards, where he will be given an International Achievement Award.

The other member of the trio, Mr Gibb's twin brother Maurice, died in 2003, although Mr Gibb said "his legacy lives on through the music".

The two brothers recently took part in two television programmes - Dancing With The Stars and Strictly Come Dancing - but Mr Gibb admitted this was very emotional because their other brother is missing.

But with one of the biggest song catalogues in the world, the two do not need to concentrate on touring "unless we really want to do it and it is really special". "We have the luxury of choice," he said.

According to Malta Music Awards chairman Noel Magri, Mr Gibb "will probably" be performing tonight. Mr Magri also said the Gibb brothers were considering stopping in Malta next year as part of a tour. Dressed in a black polo neck, a grey suit and round sunglasses with blue lenses, Mr Gibb stopped to sign autographs and take photos with fans who were waiting for him at the airport.

Tomorrow, Mr Gibb will be laying a wreath at Floriana's War Memorial in memory of war heroes, a subject he has close to heart. He is one of the major supporters of a campaign to build a memorial to the heroes of Bomber Command, the organisation that controlled the RAF's bomber forces between 1936 and 1968.
