Bryan Ferry, in the Auditori del Fòrum

The legendary leader of Roxy Music will close the Barcelona Guitar Festival with a solo performance on the 5th of July

With a career spanning forty years at his back, Bryan Ferry has become one of the icons of the history of rock and pop music. As the leader of Roxy Music from 1973 to 1982, the English singer was the paradigm of elegance and sophistication with a succession of hits that included “Love is the Drug”, “Virginia Plain”, “Slave to Love”, “More Than This” and “Avalon”.

In parallel to his group commitments, Bryan Ferry developed a solo career which, over the years, has led him on a voyage of rediscovery. From crooner to collaborator on avant-garde projects, the charismatic singer’s solo career began with his debut solo album, These Foolish Things, in 1973, and includes roughly a dozen releases up to, Olympia, in 2010. From the more intimate The Bride Stripped Bare (1978) to the hit album Boys and Girls (1985), Ferry has always been a versatile performer, comfortable of performing within a wide variety of musical genres.

In 2007, he took it on himself to release an album of Dylan covers, Dylanesque, and, more recently, The Bryan Ferry Orchestra have re-recorded jazz versions of some of Roxy Music’s hits in The Jazz Age (2012).

Bryan Ferry will perform in the Auditori del Fòrum this Saturday, the 5th of July, thereby bringing to a close the Barcelona Guitar Festival which, since February, has brought more than thirty artists to Barcelona’s stages.
