Technical Glitch Cuts Bryan Ferry's North American Tour Closer Short

PITTSBURGH, PA (CelebrityAccess) — British singer-songwriter Bryan Ferry was forced to cut short the closing date of his U.S. tour due to technical glitches.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Ferry was performing at Pittsburgh's Heinz Hall on Saturday, his first visit to Steel City in 38 years, when the sound when out while Ferry was in the midst of the Roxy Music hit "Virginia Plain."

The sound faded to an unpleasant buzzing and the band walked off stage while sound techs worked on the problem, but after ten minutes, Ferry returned to the stage for a brief and inaudible goodbye to the crowd, the Post-Gazette said.

A manager for the venue later told the Post-Gazette that the audio had failed due to the band's soundboard being "fried."

Following the wrap of his U.S. dates, Ferry is next due to perform a string of dates in Europe, starting with a show at Teatro Arcimboldi in Milan on May 11th. – Staff Writers
