SHOW PREVIEW: Bryan Ferry
Former Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry brings his powerful vocals and finely tailored suits to the Lincoln Theater for performances on September 28 and 29. Expect a dose of infectious ‘80s grooves, paired with a layer of distinguished elder statesman gravitas.
Ferry started Roxy Music in 1971 in England, combining elements of art rock and glam. The group included, among other members, Windows 95 startup sound composer and all-around musical legend Brian Eno. Their debut was 1972’s self-tiled album, which contained the UK hits “Virginia Plain” and “Re-Make/Re-Model.”
1975’s Siren saw the group earn its first US hit with the bouncy “Love is the Drug”. Rolling Stone named Siren one of its 500 greatest albums of all time, calling it a “delicious LP of lounge-lizard ennui”.
In the early ‘80s, Ferry turned to a solo career. His first record in this era, 1985’s Boys and Girls, brought a number of durable tunes. The slinky “Slave to Love,” wistful “Don’t Stop the Dance,” and shimmering “Windswept” all stand out.
Come on out to the show and you’ll get a fair helping of these hits and more. A look at setlists of late indicates that Ferry’s giving his audience the material they know and love. And a glance a recent live sets shows that he’s still giving it his all. Bring yourself back to a time where snare drums had the amount of reverb they deserved and join us for what will be a great experience!
Bryan Ferry will perform at the Lincoln Theatre on September 28 and September 29.
