1982-83 Roxy Music Avalon

Roxy Music toured the world in 1982 and into 1983 to promote what was their most succseful album, Avalon. The tour took in Europe Australia, Japan and finished in USA on 28th May 1983. It was to be 18 years later before the band worked together again.

The show in Frejus France was filmed and released as 'The High Road' video in 1983 and the DVD version was released in 2001.

The set list remained fairly consistant throughout the tour but in the early shows in Ireland they played More Than This but it was dropped after the Ireland dates. The Space Between & Eight Miles High and a version of The Doors Light My Fire were also rehearsed for the tour but were not used.
The surprise addition to the set was the Neil Young song Like A Hurricane which Bryan nor Roxy had recorded before.
A Live album 'Heart Still Beating' and a mini album 'The High Road' were released using live cuts from this tour.

The support band for the European dates was King Crimson with Mari Wilson on some of the UK dates. A Glasgow band, The Young Ones were the support at the Apollo show as King Crimson could not make that show. Berlin were the support in USA.
