2002-03-04 Bryan Ferry Frantic

Bryan Ferry's 2002 tour began with a series of open air summer shows which were 'hits' orientated shows. The indoor venues starting in September had a very different set with Bryan doing the opening number The Only Face as a piano vocal with the rest of the band joining the stage song by song untill the whole band were on stage for The Thrill Of It All. The 'Frantic' album was promoted more during this part of the tour with most of the songs on the album being played somewhere along the tour.

A surprise addition was 'Just Like You' from Roxy Music's 'Stranded' album being played live for the first time. A piano/vocal version of More Than This opened the Barcelona show.

Carrickfergus was performed as a one-off in Cork in the early part of the tour but became a regular in the Autumn tour.
My Only Love was introduced in Rome and Goodnight Irene had a one off performance at the Rome show and then was introduced to the UK dates in 2003. A song called My One And Only Love was performed as a sax instrumental during the Autumn dates on the Frantic tour.

The Belfast Castle show was broadcast live on BBC Radio 2 and the
The Amsterdam show was recorded by Dutch Radio and was broadcast on 27th September, the Brussels show was recorded by Belgian TV and a broadcast was shown on Belgian & French TV.

The Sam The Sham & The Pharoes song Wooly Bully was performed at the York show and was included in the set for several of the remaining shows.

Scottish singer 'Horse' was the support for some of the summer shows with Rosie Thomas as support act for the Autumns show. Martina Sorbara was the support act for the USA dates in November and the UK dates in 2003.

20 dates in UK were added to the Frantic tour in March 2003 mainly in towns and venues not often played by Bryan. Prior commitments meant that Lucy Wilkins, Sarah Brown Katie Turner & Anna Vollands could not join the band for this additional leg of the tour. Lucy was replaced by Lousie Peacock and Sharon White & Michelle John-Douglas rplaced Sarah, Katie & Anna on backing vocals. The final 4 dates of the tour had to be cancelled as Bryan had acute laryngitus was advised by doctors not to sing. these dates were the rescheduled to November 2003.

The Australia & New Zealand leg of the tour was added for February 2004 and summer dates have also been added for UK in 2004, these dates may well be part of a 'hits' tour. Durning the Australin dates Bryan added the song Broken Wings to the set which had never been performed live before.
