Roxy Music Announces 50th Anniversary Tour For Fall
Roxy Music has announced a 50th anniversary tour that will visit North America and Europe in September and October.
The trek begins September 7 in Toronto and ends October 14 in London. St. Vincent will open all North American dates except Boston.
Tickets for the UK dates will go on sale to the general public on March 31, while the North American dates will go on sale to the public on April 4. You can find more information on the band’s website and see the full list of tour dates below.
The upcoming tour marks the first time Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera and Paul Thompson have all performed under the Roxy Music name since 2011. Ferry, Mackay and Manzanera shared the stage during the Rock & Roll Hall induction of Fame from Roxy Music in 2019, but Thompson did not attend the ceremony due to his arthritis. (Original keyboardist Brian Eno, who won’t be performing on the upcoming tour, declined to attend the ceremony for environmental reasons.)
Roxy Music will once again celebrate its 50th anniversary by re-releasing its eight studio albums on mastered, half-speed vinyl. Their self-titled debut album in 1972 and its sequel, At your servicewill arrive on April 1, with the remaining albums being released in pairs throughout the year.
