Roxy Music plan to celebrate their 50th anniversary by kicking off a tour in Toronto on September 7. The band’s lead singer Bryan Ferry is astonished at the fact that the British rock band’s music still resonates with the public after five long decades, “It’s very gratifying that the music still has an audience. I’m blushing—I don’t know what to say. It’s great that people like it.”
Roxy Music have received great critical acclaim throughout their 50 year career. They have eight studio albums to be proud of with unforgettable songs like “Re-Make/Re-Model,” “Do the Strand,” “Street Life,” “Love Is the Drug,” “Dance Away” and “More Than This.” The English rock band was also inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.
Roxy Music have shaped generations of great musicians inspiring ingenious artists such as the Sex Pistols, Chic, U2, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Duran Duran, Garbage, Goldfrapp and St. Vincent.
Celebrating their 50th anniversary, four of the original members of the legendary group have decided to reunite after 10 years of being apart. Brian Ferry, Phil Manzanera, Andy Mackay, and Paul Thompson will come together once again to give fans one last chance to see them tour.
