Seventies icon Bryan Ferry has signed up for an open-air concert in Norfolk.

Former front man for Roxy Music, the band renowned for pushing the boundaries of rock music, Ferry will be on stage at Thetford Forest Park on June 12 as part of a nationwide tour.

Last week the EDP revealed that glamorous chart-toppers the Sugababes and New York blues-rockers the Fun Lovin' Criminals will be headlining this summer's concerts at High Lodge.

There is another act due to confirm a visit to the forest on June 13, clinching one of the Forestry Commission's most exciting musical line-ups.

Tickets for the Sugababes, who will play on July 31, and Fun Lovin' Criminals, playing the next day, August 1, are set to go on sale on Monday.

Bryan Ferry is visiting as part of a larger tour of Forestry Commission venues, including Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire.

Best known for Roxy Music songs, Virginia Plain and Love is a Drug, and solo work Let's Stick Together, Bryan Ferry is a singer/songwriter who has influenced many bands.

Although Roxy Music folded in 1982 after ten years, its legacy was to influence every music genre from new romantics to dance, such as Radiohead, Moby, Suede and Pulp.

Giles Brockman, district forester at the Forestry Commission, said: "Every year we try to find new and exciting acts to perform and this year's programme already boasts some top names. I'm sure music lovers will have a great time at the shows."

Tickets can only be bought from Monday from the Forestry Commission ticket hotline on 01842 814612.
