SFX has added the reunion of Roxy Music to its list of tours this year.
At a packed press conference at London's Savoy in the Strand, original band members Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay and Phil Manzanera talked about their plans for a final one-off tour – 18 years after they split. Founding member Brian Eno, now a successful record producer, will not join the lineup.
Coordinated by Arthur Fogel out of SFX's Toronto office, the 12-country kicks off June 9 in the U.K. at Dublin's Point Depot. Following the U.K. shows, The Roxy Music 2001 Tour will touch down in Europe, Canada and the U.S.
