British pop icon and Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry is bringing his World Tour to Aotearoa in 2019, with two headline all-ages events lined up for Auckland's Spark Arena and Wellington's TSB Arena this March. The inimitable singer of such timeless classics as 'Slave To Love', 'Don't Stop The Dance', 'Love Is The Drug' and 'Avalon', Ferry has left an indelible mark on pop music history since Roxy Music changed the face of glam rock with Brian Eno in the early seventies. Fans of the pop sophisticate will be out in full force to catch Ferry performing a selection of material from throughout his peerless, multi-faceted oeuvre for his first local appearance in eight years. Here are the details...

Press release:

Frontier Touring is thrilled to announce arena shows by one of Britain’s most iconic and sophisticated names; Bryan Ferry, the acclaimed solo artist and leader of Roxy Music. Ferry returns to New Zealand in March 2019 as part of his extensive world tour.

‘Let’s Stick Together’, ‘Love Is The Drug’, ‘Slave To Love’, ‘Avalon’, ‘More Than This’, ‘Jealous Guy’, ‘Don’t Stop The Dance’... Bryan Ferry possesses the rare distinction of being regarded as both classic and timelessly contemporary, an accomplishment achieved by both his recordings with Roxy Music and the range and intensity of his solo albums.

Ferry’s world tour will travel from South Africa to Switzerland next year, with a tour-end performance at the legendary Royal Albert Hall in London in June. But before then, it’s Australia and New Zealand’s turn – eight years since the singer was last on our shores.

In New Zealand, Ferry will perform at Wellington’s TSB Arena on Tuesday 5 March, followed by Auckland’s Spark Arena on Thursday 7 March.

Since the release of Roxy Music’s seminal, self-titled debut back in 1972, Bryan Ferry has been internationally acclaimed as one of the most innovative and stylish artists in pop and rock music.

Wildly regarded as the embodiment of the glamorous and romantic worlds evoked by his songs, Ferry is also lauded as an icon of sartorial and personal cool. A former student of Fine Art, and as involved in the visual aspects of his work as he is in the composition and performance of the music, Ferry has conceived and directed some of the most original, controversial and critically applauded album sleeve artwork of the last four decades.

With eight studio albums to his name, including multiple Platinum, Gold and Silver certifications across the globe, February 2018 saw the release of a deluxe 45th anniversary edition of Roxy Music’s iconic self-titled debut album, remastered at Abbey Road Studios.

With a career that spans decades, including elegant covers, orchestral works, instrumentals and phenomenally successful chart singles, Bryan Ferry is not to be missed. Don’t delay in grabbing your tickets!
