Roxy re-unites

Seventies rockers to tour

LONDON — Seminal avant-garde rockers Roxy Music are re-uniting for an international tour this summer, performing for the first time in 18 years.

The group’s core trio of singer Bryan Ferry, saxophonist Andy Mackay and guitarist Phil Manzanera are assembling additional musicians and plan to perform in 12 countries beginning in Dublin on June 9.

Seven U.K. dates have been announced, culminating with London’s Wembley Arena June 22. In North America, 12 cities are targeted, including Los Angeles and New York, and continental Europe will follow.

At the unveiling of the tour at London’s Savoy hotel, Ferry said getting back together was the “logical extension” of his recent live performances, which have included Roxy material. Manzanera added that there was “a sense of unfinished business” between the bandmates.

That could eventually include a new studio album – the last was the highly-successful “Avalon” in 1982.

Ferry has a solo release due in October, and the trio told Daily Variety they expected to cull a live album from the tour’s recordings.
