Additional London Date Added
Following a sold out and critically acclaimed tour of the UK, Bryan Ferry has announced a very special additional End Of Tour show at Shepherds Bush Empire on Saturday November 30th 2013 in aid of the Disasters Emergency Committee Philippines Typhoon Appeal.
Ferry says “We were all shocked by the devastating Typhoon Haiyan that hit the Philippines during the tour. When the opportunity arose for us to add another London date we decided to do a show for the benefit of the Philippines”.
Having performed 21 shows around the UK including the 5 Star reviewed performance at The Royal Albert Hall earlier this month, Ferry will bring his band and The Bryan Ferry Orchestra for a final spectacular one off show at the Shepherds Bush Empire.
Ferry’s tour has seduced a new generation of fans and has been receiving unanimously rave reviews, with The Guardian (5 Stars) stating “Byronesque Ferry glories in nostalgia of the new, re-presenting his oeuvre in a new and thrilling way”, while The Daily Telegraph (5 Stars) say “Ferry cruises through 40 years – Deeply rooted in the past and yet daringly modern in its merging of genres. This was, indeed, the music of time.”
This concert is the last chance this year to see Bryan Ferry and his talented musicians – pre-sale tickets for BryanFerry.com will be on sale from 9am Tuesday (19 Nov) morning

100 and counting.
30th September 1982, I took the 17 minute train journey from my home village of Croy to Glasgow Queen Street and then a 5 minute walk to the nearby legendary Glasgow Apollo. I was blissfully unaware that this would be one short trip for a 17 year old to see a rock music concert, but also one giant journey just at its beginning.
Up until that evening Bryan Ferry, Phil Manzanera, Andy Mackay etc , were just a myriad of celluloid artefacts, diamond drawn across the dark mirror of vulcanite, but tonight……… it was the Flesh + Blood.
My memories of that evening (like every show I have been to) are so clear, especially as the band wandered across the stage as ‘India’ blasted out of the PA and into the throbbing pulse of The Main Thing, ….this is it, …..this is Roxy Music.
Just as I had got over the idea that that was actually thee Phil Manzanera to my left and Andy Mackay to the right, on comes from the side in his white ‘jaikit’ and crimson cummerbund the guy who would inspire and influence me in so many ways for the rest of my life.
That one wee gig on that evening on the 40+ years recorded on the musical chronology of a career, that as I write, is being given as huge an applause as at any time since 1972 and was the first of many great events for me. I say event because Roxy/Ferry shows have always been an event for me. A trip to a new town or foreign country etc, but most of all to meet up with the many great friendships I have established, and never would have had, if it wasn’t for these shows.
That particular performance back in 1982 was recorded and released as ‘The High Road’ EP, I just didn’t realise at the time how high that road would take me. I now head off on a 10 minute walk from my hotel to Bristol Colston Hall, a significant show for me, but every one of the previous 99 has been significant in its own little way.
Part of this same journey has given me the privilege to work for Bryan and the band at times and play a small part in the history of what has been a huge part of my life, but more important than any of that is that I walked into the glittery hall of Glasgow Apollo that Thursday evening as a fan and tonight, first and foremost, I will walk into Colston Hall still as avid a fan as ever. …………….looking forward to the next 100 shows.
My first ever Roxy/Ferry show was 11,551 days ago - so it averages out at 1 show every 115 days, so it’s not that many really.

A wee bit late in announcing this as I have been travelling to another great performance in Bryan's hometown Newcastle.
