Bryan Ferry is in the midst of a rare US tour that hits NYC on Thursday, but first brought him to Montclair, NJ’s Wellmont Theater last night (10/4). Before Jersey was DC:

“This was Ferry’s first D.C. area visit since his latest release, 2010’s “Olympia,” but he barely acknowledged that album. Instead, the singer presented two sets of greatest cult hits, featuring such Roxy Music standards as “Avalon” but heavy on other people’s tunes he’s claimed as his own. Ferry wore a black suit and tie — white shirt for the first hour, black for the second — and performed R & B stompers (Wilbert Harrison’s “Let’s Stick Together”) and craggy rockers (Neil Young’s “Like a Hurricane”) as if they were cut from the same Savile Row cloth as his urbane originals.” [Washington Post]

You can see Ferry’s 2-set NJ setlist with more pictures from the show, which included an opening set by The Phenomenal Handclap Band, below…
