Their first UK tour in over a decade, which coincides with the 40th anniversary of this hugely influential band. The seven date 'For Your Pleasure' UK tour commences on 25th January 2011 in Newcastle as the band featuring the original line-up of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera and Paul Thompson make their highly anticipated return to the Metro Radio Arena.
Roxy Music landed in 1971, seemingly from far beyond Planet Earth, to part bewilderment part rapture....an intoxicating cocktail of fashion, romance, nostalgia and futurism with songs that were almost cinematic, set to soundscapes that stunned and perplexed: ' Remake-Remodel', 'Do The Strand', 'Virginia Plain', 'Love Is the Drug'. 'Pyjamarama', 'Editions of You' and 'More Than This' have all become classics and sound as vital as ever some four decades on. For all their imitators and admirers, no one has ever successfully cloned the unique and indefinable combination of elements that make Roxy Music one of the most influential bands in rock music history.
Roxy Music, who were chosen by long-time fan Jonathan Ross, to be his final music guest on 'Friday Night with Jonathan Ross' on Friday 16th July, are playing a series of European Festivals this Summer, including the UK's Lovebox and Bestival.
