Ferry began his solo career in 1973. His solo hits included A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall, Let’s Stick Together and This Is Tomorrow.  Ferry’s best-selling album Avalon, released in 1982, saw further release of singles such as Slave to Love and Don’t Stop the Dance, followed by the UK no. 1 album Boys and Girls in 1985. When his sales as a solo artist and as a member of Roxy Music are combined, Ferry has sold over 30 million albums worldwide.

As an artist and musician, Bryan Ferry possesses the rare distinction of being regarded as both classic and timelessly contemporary – an accomplishment achieved by both his recordings with Roxy Music and the range and intensity of his solo albums.

This may be the last chance for South African fans to watch Bryan Ferry live performing all his hits live.
