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.
