Robin Gibb will receive a public memorial at St Paul's Cathedral, his family have confirmed.

The memorial service had previously been rumoured by friends of the Gibb family, with the ceremony now due to take place in September, The Guardian reports.

The Bee Gees singer passed away earlier this month after a lengthy battle with cancer. His funeral will take place next month near his home in Thame, Oxfordshire.

The singer-songwriter's son Robin-John Gibb also stated that he plans to put on a second performance of The Titanic Requiem, a composition by himself and his father.

The piece premiered in London last month, with the next performance planned for June 23 in Rome.

"We've worked on the project for the last two years and it was so important to him, as it is to me," Gibb said.

"[This] will be the first time it will be heard with accompanying holographics and there will be images of Dad."

Robin-John Gibb confirmed last week that his father's death was caused by kidney failure.
