Bryan Ferry and fellow members of Roxy Music will reunite for a performance to celebrate the British art-rock pioneer's upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The performance will take place at the induction ceremony on March 29 in Brooklyn, New York, at Barclays Center.
Rolling Stone reports on March 28 that Ferry, the band's lead vocalist and principal songwriter, will join fellow Roxy Music founding members Andy Mackay (sax) and Phil Manzanera (guitar) at the event. The trio will be joined ex-Ferry/Roxy Music sidemen Chris Spedding, Neil Jason and Fonzi Thornton, who will stand in for Brian Eno (synth) and Paul Thompson (drums). Eno and Thompson had to bow out due to previous commitments.
The “Love Is the Drug” hitmakers have not performed together since dissolving after the Roxy Music For Your Pleasure Tour, which wrapped up back on March 6, 2011, in Auckland, New Zealand. The multi-platinum rockers have not recorded a studio album since their classic 1982 release Avalon.
Following his appearance at Rock Hall ceremony, Ferry will be touring Europe as part of the Night Of The Proms Tour. The trek continues on April 13 in Foggia, Italy, at Piazza Cavour.
The charismatic singer-songwriter will return to North America for a headline tour in support of his latest studio album Bitter-Sweet, which dropped Nov. 30 via BMG. The summer romp begins on July 30 in Toronto at Sony Centre and includes a big stop Aug. 29 in Los Angeles at the Greek Theater, before wrapping up Sept. 5 in Vancouver, BC, at Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
