Bryan Ferry coming to Israel
Roxy Music lead vocalist to perform in Tel Aviv on April 19, just five days after teen idol Justin Bieber
British singer Bryan Ferry, 65, will perform in Tel Aviv's Frederic R. Mann Auditorium on April 19, just five days after teen idol Justin Bieber's concert in Israel.


Tickets are expected to cost NIS 200-600 (about $55-165).


Ferry was considered one of the biggest music stars in the 1970s and 1980s, with dozens of hit singles both with the Roxy Music band and as part of his solo career.


Ferry formed Roxy Music in 1970 together with saxophonist Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera, Paul Thompson and Brian Eno – who is today one of the most important music producers in the world.


Roxy Music's first album was released in 1972 and was an immediate success in the United Kingdom. By 1982 the band had recorded eight studio albums, which included the hit singles "Street Life", "Love is the Drug", "Avalon" and "Casanova".


In the meantime, Ferry launched a very successful solo career, recording several songs with the band members. He reached the top of global charts thanks to successful cover versions to songs like John Lennon's "Jealous Guy" and the original "Slave to Love" ballad, which became a huge hit.


Sixteen years ago, Ferry teamed up again with Brian Eno in the album "Mamouna".


In late 1999 Ferry released his album "As Time Goes By", and a year later Roxy Music reunited for a concert tour celebrating the band's 30th anniversary.


In October 2010 he released his latest album, "Olympia", together with former Roxy Music band members and British musician Dave Stewart.


Bryan Ferry's concert is being brought to Israel by PLUG, Triple Function Productions and The Third Ear.
