Bryan Ferry to reunite with Roxy Music for first live performance in 8 years

It's for the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Bryan Ferry will reunite with some of his Roxy Music bandmates for the group’s first performance in eight years as part of their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

This weekend, Ferry will join multi-instrumentalist Andy Mackay and guitarist Phil Manzanera for a special performance. Due to other commitments, other Roxy Music members Paul Thompson and Brian Eno will not attend.

A selection of musicians who have played with Ferry and Roxy Music over the years will accompany the trio including Chris Spedding, Neil Jason, and Fonzi Thornton.

The 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class is comprised of Radiohead, The Cure, Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, Def Leppard, and The Zombies. The ceremony takes place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, with a TV broadcast of the ceremony airing on HBO at a later date.

In May, Ferry continues his world tour which will see him play songs from Roxy Music’s ‘Avalon’ as well as his other solo and Roxy hits.

Yesterday (March 27) it was reported that RZA said Wu-Tang Clan should be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in the future.

Artists are eligible for inclusion 25 years after the release of their first record. The New York hip-hop group have been eligible since 2017.
