Bryan Ferry to play in Bucharest

Bryan Ferry, the celebrated British musician, lyricist and composer, the founding member of the legendary band Roxy Music and the author of hits like “Slave to Love”, “Don’t Stop The Dance”, “More Than This”, “Shameless”, “One Night” or “Avalon”, will concert, for the first time in Romania, at the Palace Hall in Bucharest, on May 1, 2011.

The concert is part of the tour to promote the “Olympia” record, the latest album signed by the artist, launched last autumn. The album contains both songs recorded alongside his ex-colleagues in Roxy Music, as well as collaborations with great artists, the likes of David Stewart (Eurythmics), Johnny Greenwood (Radiohead), Flea (Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Scissor Sisters, Groove Armada and Davide Gilmour (Pink Floyd). The album also includes two covers: a moving adaptation of Tim Buckley’s “Song to the Siren” and an amazing version of the hit signed by the psychedelic rock band Traffic, “No Face, No Name, No Number”. The album’s cover features a photograph of the famous model Kate Moss, in a posture inspired by Impressionist artist Edouard Manet’s painting of the same title. Making it straight into the Top 20, the album was well-received by the critics and public alike, and many of them considered it the artist’s best record in the past 20 years. Those who wish will be able to purchase the album “Olympia” during the concert. Tickets are available online, on eventim.ro, and in the Eventim network, including Germanos, Orange, Vodafone, Domo shops, in Humanitas and Carturesti bookshops, as well as at the Palace Hall.
