2015 Bryan Ferry
Bryan Ferry toured his Avonmore album in 2015 beginning in Belfast on 6th May 2015. The tour took him throughout UK in May then over to Germany for some dates in September finishing of with 4 UK dates in October
The set list included some of Bryan/Roxy's biggest hits and crowd pleasers like More Than This, Love Is The Drug & Slave To Love. The set also include several new songs from Bryan's most recent album Avonmore. There were a few surprises for the long term fans with some rarely/never performed before songs from the Ferry/Roxy catalogue. Zamba from 1987's Bete Noire had never been performed live until now and the title track from that album was played live for the first time since the 1988 tour. A non album Bob Dylan song Bob Dylan's Dream that Bryan gave to a various artists album was performed live for the first time on this tour. The biggest surprise to the fans was the inclusion in a live show for the first time since 1974 Beauty Queen from the second Roxy Music album.
