Bryan Ferry, the founder and ex-front man of Roxy Music and one of the most romantic voices of England, is set to wow an audience in Moscow on Friday night.

­The British star will stop by the Russian capital as part of a world tour to promote his latest studio album, Olympia.

Ferry has enjoyed a successful career in music for almost four decades and does not intend to stop. He reached the peak of his popularity during the Roxy Music years with hits such as Love Is The Drug, Avalon and Virginia Plain.

After the band fell apart, he managed to secure himself a solid place on the music scene as a solo artist, going on to record 12 albums and release 39 singles. Often labelled as one of the UK's great art school pop musicians, Ferry continues to create sublime and chart-topping songs.

His latest – Olympia – released in October 2010, represents a series of collaborative creations, recorded together with former Roxy Music band members and other stellar musicians such as Nile Rodgers, Scissor Sisters, Groove Armada, David Gilmour, Johnny Greenwood of Radiohead, Flea of Red Hot Chilli Peppers and others. Top model Kate Moss is on the album cover, wearing nothing but diamonds and ruby red lipstick.

The only Moscow concert by the British star will be held at Crocus City Hall on September 16. The gig had originally been scheduled for April 22, but was cancelled due to the star’s ill health.
