Roxy Music to reform without Eno

Roxy Music

Story by Jack Foley

ROXY Music are reportedly working on their first album of new material for more than 30 years, having reformed with their original line-up.

Four of the original members are involved – including Bryan Ferry, Andy MacKay, Phil Manzanera and Paul Thompson.

Reports that Brian Eno was also taking part have since been dismissed. The band’s last album was 1982’s Avalon.

Roxy Music enjoyed considerable success as part of the early ‘70s glam rock era, although they eventually went their separate ways when Eno left to pursue a solo career, during which he became one of the industry’s most in-demand producers working with U2 and Talking Heads.

Lead singer Ferry also quit the band in 1983 to go solo.

No release date has yet been set for the album although a European tour is expected to be announced in support of the new material.

Roxy Music’s last reunion took place in 2001, while they also got together for a series of concerts including the Isle Of Wight festival last year.
