Roxy Music’s Bryan Ferry has announced 18 shows across North American this summer. The tour is an expansion of his already-announced 2019 World tour that will also take him through the UK, Europe, South Africa, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
The U.S. and Canadian trek will kick off July 30th in Toronto and wrap up September 5th in Vancouver. It follows close on the heels of Roxy Music’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this March.
“We are delighted to accept this prestigious award on behalf of everyone who has been involved in the world of Roxy Music,” Bryan Ferry said in a statement following the induction announcement. ” – musicians, engineers, producers, designers and numerous people behind the scenes… and of course our loyal fans.”
For the tour, Ferry will focus on songs from the Roxy Music’s 1982 album Avalon, as well as perform hits from the Roxy Music catalog and his solo body of work.
An announcement on Ferry’s website also states that more 2019 tour dates will be added in the coming months.
Roxy Music was formed in 1970 by Bryan Ferry and bassist Graham Simpson. Avalon was the band’s 8th and final studio album. It reached #1 in the UK, where remained on the charts for over a year, and went on to sell more than a million copies in the U.S., receiving Platinum certification. It spawned the singles “More Than This,” “Avalon” and “Take a Chance With Me.”
