Roxy Music Reunion Tour Sets North American Dates

Core trio of singer Bryan Ferry, guitarist Phil Manzanera, saxophonist Andy Mackay to launch that leg of summer trek July 16 in Toronto.

After they hit the U.K. in June, Roxy Music will launch the North American leg of their reunion tour July 16 in Toronto.

Fronted by the reunited trio of singer Bryan Ferry, guitarist Phil Manzanera and saxophonist Andy Mackay — with a bassist and drummer to be named later — Roxy Music will head out on a summer global trek that promoters described as a "final one-off tour" last month.

No word yet on which acts might be opening for Roxy Music for the North American shows.

After forming in 1971, Roxy Music quickly established themselves as key players on the British glam-rock scene with their eponymous debut in 1972 and For Your Pleasure in 1973. Both albums feature contributions from sonic wizard Brian Eno, who left the group in 1973.

With Ferry, Manzanera and Mackay at the core of the group, Roxy Music went on to issue six more studio albums of jazz- and disco-influenced art rock, including the acclaimed Siren in 1975 and their final record, Avalon, in 1982, before they disbanded the year following the 1983 Avalon tour.

The reunited Roxy Music are slated to launch their tour June 8 in Dublin, Ireland, with dates in the UK and Ireland continuing through a two-night stand at Wembley Arena in London on June 22 and 23.
