Win Tickets to Bryan Ferry
The Roxy Music singer brings his raved-about, time-traveling show to the Schnitz on April 8.
Bryan Ferry rose to prominence as the vocalist for the 1970's UK band Roxy Music, an experimental art band whose music influenced glam, punk, new wave, and electronic. Between Roxy and his solo career, Ferry has sold some 30 million albums, with singles like "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall," "Let's Stick Together," and "Slave to Love." And he's stayed relevant by collaborating with the likes of the Groove Armada and the Scissor Sisters, as well as reimagining his style from the 70's through modern and jazz filters with releases like his latest, Jazz Age, a full orchestral reworking of his most popular songs into jazz.
Ferry's current show is like a 40-year journey through music that has received rave reviews overseas. He "glories in nostalgia of the new, re-presenting his oeuvre in a new and thrilling way," wrote The Guardian. His only scheduled US tour dates are on the West Coast, including a stop at Coachella.
