Saw Brian Ferry Last Night!


Great Show! So if he comes your way and you like classics like Avelon go see him. Great musicians and he sings as well if not better than ever. Maybe he doesn't bow as deeply. Also the Opera House in Boston has turned into a great venue. Sound quality is excellent. You even get an image, sort of an image.

Excellent!  It's great to hear live music whenever possible, and even greater when the venue has a properly designed sound stage.  Isn't that what this hobby is all about?  I too missed out on this bands live concerts, but still enjoy the Avalon record and Roxy Music.  How would you compare the live music concert to the recorded studio version?
Going to see him here in Atlanta next Thursday. I saw Roxy Music at the outdoor arena here called Chastain in 2001. The Roxy show was one of the best I have ever seen. Bryan Ferry really knows how to entertain with a very tight band and always includes talented female musicians. This particular Roxy show had Vegas style dancers with headdresses that made them about 8 feet tall! The Thursday show is at the Tabernacle which is an old church that has been updated into a funky concert hall. I will post a review.
Everyone have a Great Time!! He is complete with his gorgeous and fabulously talented female musicians.
So the Atlanta show was terrific. As usual, Mr. Ferry had a tight band and was generous sharing the spotlight with them even though the show was centered around Bryan. I was particularly impressed by the sax player, Jorja Chalmer. She is from Australia and was born in 1982- the year that Avalon was released. I think that she could easily have been a cover model for one of the old Roxy Music albums. Highlights of the show for me were "Just Like Tom Thumb Blues" and the screaming violin solo from "Out of the Blue". Ferry's voice was strong, he still oozes class, and probably most important of all, he seemed to be having a really good time.
