Bryan Ferry CBE (born September 26, 1945 in London) is an English singer and songwriter. In the early 1970s he became known as the lead singer and main songwriter for the glam rock band Roxy Music. Ferry’s musical career as a band member or solo artist now spans about half a century. In March 2019, Roxy Music was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where Ferry gave an acceptance speech on behalf of all Roxy Music members.

On this occasion, Ferry met two of his former bandmates from Roxy Music for the group’s first appearance in eight years as part of their induction into the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame. Ferry took the stage with multi-instrumentalist Andy Mackay and guitarist Phil Manzanera. They were complemented by musicians who have played with Ferry and Roxy Music over the years, including Chris Spedding, Neil Jason and Alfonso “Fonzi” Thornton.

The pictures shown here were taken in May 2019 when Ferry and his band performed in Hamburg / Germany in the Elbphilharmonie, a place with one of the most famous concert halls in the world, which is known for its excellent acoustics, among other things.

Besides the names mentioned above, it was especially Jorja Chalmers who impressed with her excellent saxophone playing.
