Forty years ago Bryan Ferry formed Roxy music and has been a glittering musical success ever since. His solo career takes on a much more distinguished form than the early Roxy one of shimmer and makeup. Nowadays Brian Ferry pops up with unexpected cover versions such as ‘Back to Black’ by Amy Winehouse. Ferry’s backing band play almost like a band at a Jewish wedding ceremony as they lazily jazz their way through Amy’s song.
It is true to say that Bryan Ferry has been one of our most enduring singers. You need to be able to keep your nerve to stay in the limelight for so long. Master of chic and style, Mr Ferry oozes class and blows competition away. This well-groomed and impeccably dressed artist can sing with romance and feeling and if the song needs rocking up, the American star will rock it up.
If you are a Bryan Ferry fan you’ll be pleased to hear that him and his band are playing at the Royal Albert Hall on November 4, 2013. The legendary Roxy music founder will only play at this prestigious London venue for one night as he kicks off his first British tour for five years.
Sat on the northern edge of South Kensington, in the City of Westminster, the Royal Albert Hall’s position certainly does justice to the glamorous and glitzy crowd of performers and spectators it attracts.
Since it was opened by Queen Victoria in 1871, many of the world’s leading artists have performed here. As a consequence, the Royal Albert Hall has become one of the most treasured and distinguished venues in the UK. More than 350 events, including rock and pop gigs, classical concerts, award ceremonies, charity events and sports and school activities take place here each year.
Brian Ferry is just one artist out of a heady and exciting line-up at the Royal Albert Hall in the forthcoming months. So if you want to watch a man who was born to perform, you better make November 4 a date with Brian Ferry in your diary.
