London - A publicist for Robin Gibb says the Bee Gees star has undergone further surgery following a bout of ill health.

Doug Wright said on Wednesday Gibb is recovering in the hospital after intestinal surgery over the weekend and has been forced to cancel a number of commitments.

Gibb is slated to return to the stage on April 10 for a performance of a requiem for victims of the Titanic disaster.

The 62-year-old Gibb was hospitalised 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.

The Bee Gees had a string of hits in the disco era, including Stayin' Alive.
