Performing a varied set list including highlights from Roxy Music, hits from his solo back catalogue as well as his recent critically-acclaimed album ‘Avonmore’, these new dates come on the back of his 2016 tours which received rave reviews, including The Times – “Both audience and their icon of cool were in their element” and Chicago Tribune – “As always, Bryan Ferry was impeccable.”

The show in Tallinn at Nordea Concert Hall takes place on October 9. Tickets on sale now!

Bryan Ferry is one of the most iconic and innovative singers and lyricists in popular music, with an original vocal brilliance of breathtaking elegance.

While studying Fine Art at the end of the 1960s he met the founder of British Pop Art, Richard Hamilton, whose influence and inspiration would inform Ferry’s artistic vision. “My earliest writings and recordings with Roxy Music,” he explains, “were a direct attempt to combine my love of music with the creative possibilities and ideas that I had learned from Fine Art.”

Awarded a travelling scholarship by the Royal College of Art, Ferry moved to London and wrote the songs, which became the first Roxy Music album. They took the history of popular music, from Elvis to progressive rock by way of soul and the avant-garde, and fused it into a seamless, glittering pure pop moment, a flawless display of musical virtuosity, lyrical brilliance and style. The first ‘Roxy Music’ album has been acclaimed by successive generations of critics as one of the most important records in the history of pop and rock.
Ferry recorded his first solo album, ‘These Foolish Things’, in 1973, showcasing his love of classic rhythm & blues and rock & roll in a style entirely his own. Ferry makes every song entirely his own. His vocal style brings a whole world to life, making each song a dramatic performance, achieving a perfect tension between languor and melodrama to create high romance. He endlessly refines his work, through recording and performance, often describing the emotional theatre of romance from the perspective of a loner and an outsider, describing love and loneliness, luxury and isolation. He is the great anatomist of glamour.
In 2014, Ferry launched his fourteenth solo album, the edgy, brooding, cinematic ‘Avonmore’ containing a mix of original compositions such as ‘Soldier of Fortune’ (co-written with Johnny Marr), ‘Lost’ and ‘Loop de Li’ as well as interpretations of Stephen Sondheim’s ‘Send in the Clowns’ and ‘Johnny and Mary’ by Robert Palmer. ‘Avonmore’ demonstrated all of the qualities that have made Bryan Ferry’s writing, arranging and vocal genius so iconic, innovative and enthralling.

2016 has been a busy year for Ferry so far with a world wide tour and release of his first solo live album.
