Roxy Music, one of the most influential and exhilarating music acts in history, tours for the first time in more than a decade to mark the 50th year since their groundbreaking debut album.
Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera, and Paul Thompson also celebrate their 50th anniversary in a rare North American Tour, which includes a show at Capital One Arena in DC on Friday, Sept. 9!
Since their formation in 1972, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, Roxy Music have left an indelible mark on the worlds of music, fashion and art, merging the three with a singular and astonishing vision that brought them immediate, global success. Today they are regarded as one of the most influential bands of all time, whose work has inspired generations of musicians. Intense, emotive, and clever, with iconic graphics, Roxy Music’s eight studio albums birthed the art-rock movement, blurring the lines between genres and infusing a new kind of glamour into rock music for the first time.

2022 marks a year of celebration for Roxy Music. Throughout the year, each of their eight studio albums, all heralded as modern classics, are dropping in remastered special anniversary editions with a new half-speed cut, revised artwork and a deluxe gloss laminated finish.
On the tour, special guest St. Vincent supports Roxy Music. Since making her recorded debut as St. Vincent in 2007, Annie Clark has consistently been regarded as one of the most innovative and fascinating presences in modern music, continually reinventing her unique sounds and personae — and winning two GRAMMY Awards in the process. Most recently, St. Vincent channeled the hungover glamour and gritty sepia-toned soundtrack of 1970s downtown NYC into the triumphant Daddy’s Home, released in May 2021 to universal acclaim.
