Roxy Music will reunite once more this year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their debut album, with Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera and Paul Thompson touring together again for the first time in the decade and playing North American shows for the first time in nearly 20 years.
The art-rock legends are slated to play 10 dates in the U.S. and Canada this September, beginning Sept. 7 in Toronto and wrapping up Sept. 28 in Los Angeles, with St. Vincent opening all of the concerts expect for Boston. The group then will play three U.K. shows — in Glasgow, Manchester and London — in October.
Despite the fact that the band’s publicists sent along a vintage photo of Roxy Music featuring Brian Eno — as seen above — he will not be rejoining the band on this tour.
Tickets for the North American dates will go on sale 10 a.m. local time Monday, April 4. Presales begin 10 a.m. local time Tuesday, March 29. Visit roxymusic.co.uk for more information.
Additionally, throughout 2022, each of Roxy Music’s eight studio albums will be reissued on vinyl as special anniversary editions with new half-speed cuts, revised artwork and deluxe gloss laminated finishes. The first two reissues — 1972’s Roxy Music and 1973’s For Your Pleasure — are due out April 1.

Roxy Music are legends I believe.They were so ahead of the curve in both their sound and their look.They’re well deserved induction to the RRHOF was overdue.The performance at the ceremony however was not the best vocally and I’ll cut Brian some slack there.I truly hope he gets his chops back for the anniversary tour as nothing will stop me from attending.Thanks as usual to Ticket Master for gouging the fans with greatly inflated ticket prices.
They’re a band I never really got to listen to as they were just a bit before I really got into music. Still been meaning to. Not disputing their legacy as I just don’t know enough – curious how they will do with the tour sales at these venues.
No eno ???
