BRYAN FERRY 50th Kings Park show

Mellen Events
and Roundhouse Entertainment have pulled a rabbit out of the hat announcing Roxy Music frontman and British musical icon Bryan Ferry will headline the first a day on the green concert of the summer season at Kings Park & Botanic Garden in Perth on Thursday, February 21 – also the 50th show staged at this stunning inner city venue since launching in February 2003.

Since the release of his first record with Roxy Music in 1972, Ferry has been internationally acclaimed as one of the most innovative and stylish musicians, songwriters and singers to emerge in music. His set list draws on material from his whole career, including classics from Roxy Music like Love Is The Drug, Avalon, More Than This, Virginia Plain and Jealous Guy, as well as much-loved solo hits like Let’s Stick Together, Slave To Love and Don’t Stop The Dance.

Roxy Music were leading proponents of the more experimental element of glam rock as well as having a significant influence on early English punk and new wave music, all the while crafting a sound that was completely their own. While remaining with Roxy Music, Ferry kicked off his successful solo career with the debut album These Foolish Things in 1973. He continued to record acclaimed solo albums throughout his career with the band, with his third solo album, 1976’s Let’s Stick Together, giving him his first number one single here with the unforgettable title track.

Plus in support, joining a long tradition of exciting a day on the green reunions, 80s Melbourne funk/pop band I’m Talking featuring Robert Goodge, Barbara Hogarth, Stephen Charlesworth and singers Kate Ceberano and Zan Abeyratne are reforming. Died Pretty and Models round out the bill.

Bryan Ferry plays Kings Park & Botanic Garden on Thursday, February 21. Tickets on sale Monday, October 29 at 2pm local time from Ticketmaster.
