Bryan Ferry is seen as one of the most innovative and stylish musicians around, and he is coming to South Africa as part of his Global Tour in 2019.
You heard it first on Breakfast with Martin Bester! South Africans will get to experience the man who is widely regarded as the embodiment of glamour and romance in the music business.
Bryan Ferry will be on stage in Pretoria at the Sun Arena, Time Square on 16 February 2019.
As a former student of Fine Art, Ferry is also heavily involved in the visual aspects of his work, and has conceived and directed some of the most original, controversial, and critically-applauded album sleeve artwork of the last four decades.
Ferry came to prominence as the lead vocalist and principal songwriter with the glam art rock band Roxy Music, achieving three number one albums and 10 singles which reached the Top 10 in the UK between 1972 and 1982. Their singles included 'Virginia Plain', 'Street Life', 'Love is the Drug', 'Dance Away', 'Angel Eyes', 'Over You', 'Oh Yeah', 'Jealous Guy', 'Avalon', and 'More Than This'.
His solo hits include 'A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall', 'Lets Stick Together', and 'This Is Tomorrow'. Ferry’s best-selling album, 1982's 'Avalon', saw the further release of singles such as 'Slave to Love' and 'Don’t Stop the Dance', followed by the UK number one album 'Boys and Girls' in 1985. When his sales as a solo artist and as a member of Roxy Music are combined, Ferry has sold over 30-million albums worldwide.
This may be the last chance for South African fans to watch Bryan Ferry performing all his hits live, so you know what you need to do!
