The famous British rock band Roxy Music will return to the stage after 11 years to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their debut album. The classic members Bryan Ferry (Vocalist and main lyricist), Andy Mackay (Saxophone, Keyboards), Paul Thompson (Drums) and Phil Manzanera (Guitar) will be on the tour.
Their first show happens in Canada and the tour continues in United States, Scotland and England. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame back in 2019 by Duran Duran‘s John Taylor and Simon Le Bon.
Formed in 1970, Roxy Music released their self-titled debut album in 1972 and made it to number 10 in the UK Albums Chart.
Some of the band’s most famous songs are “More Than This”, “Avalon”, John Lennon‘s cover “Jealous Guy” and “Love Is The Drug”.
