Roxy Music's 50th anniversary tour kicked off Wednesday night at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena. This was their first headline concert since 2011, and as you'd expect, Bryan Ferry, Phil Manzanera, Andy MacKay and Paul Thompson -- along with newer touring members -- delivered a career-spanning set with just about all their famous songs. Setlist and video from the show are in this post.
The show kicked off with "Re-Make/Re-Model," the opening song on their debut album, but their set didn't go in any kind of chronological order, mixing nervy early cuts with the more lush tracks of their later years. The set included "Ladytron," "Love is the Drug," "In Every Dream Home a Heartache," "More Than This," "Dance Away," and more. They wrapped up their main set with 1973 single "Do the Strand," and came back for a two-song encore, playing "Editions of You" and finishing with their hit cover of John Lennon's "Jealous Guy."
Roxy Music's tour, which is opened by St Vincent, hits NYC's Madison Square Garden on Monday, September 12. All dates are listed below.
