Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry is squeezing a brief 10-date North American swing through major cities this summer. Ferry, who’s still touring internationally behind his 2014 critically acclaimed Avonmore album, will play songs from the new set, solo favorites — along with such Roxy Music classics as “More Than This,” “Avalon,” “Love Is The Drug,” and “Virginia Plain,” among others.

Bryan Ferry says that just like on stage, he works better in the studio when fronting a band during the recording process: “(I’m) probably a much better singer when I’m singing with the band. I think that you perhaps get a bit more focused if you think, ‘Well, I’ve got to try and do this in one take, otherwise I look bad.’ If you’re just there with the engineer, y’know, singing, you, you get into kind of a many-take-type scenario, which. . . Although, I mean, some great records have been made like that. I mean, Al Green used to spend days, apparently, working on a song – -on the vocals, y’know? I used to love his records.”
