Roxy Music have announced they will reform this Autumn for their first tour dates in ten years.
The ‘Love Is The Drug’ icons will begin a string of North American dates at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena on September 7, before wrapping up at Los Angeles’ The Forum on September 28.
A UK tour will subsequently begin in October, with three dates at Glasgow’s OVO Hydro on October 10, Manchester’s AO Arena on October 12 and London’s The O2 on October 14.
The band – Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera and Paul Thompson – last toured together in 2011, but this latest run of shows marks their 50th anniversary. You can find all the relevant ticket information here.
They were last seen together in in 2019 whey they reunited as part of their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.
Ferry, Andy Mackay and Manzanera performed the songs ‘In Every Dream Home A Heartache’, ‘Out Of The Blue’, ‘Love Is The Drug’, ‘More Than This’, ‘Avalon’ and ‘Editions Of You’ at the ceremony, following an induction speech from Simon Le Bon and John Taylor of Duran Duran.
Ferry said at the time: “I’d like to thank everybody for this unexpected honor, especially our fans around the world, who’ve supported us through the years. I’d also like to thank all the musicians, who played such an important part in the Roxy Music story, especially Paul Thompson and Brian Eno. Eddie Jobson, who’s here with us tonight.”
Ferry was also supposed to head out on a solo tour in 2021, but it was cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions.
