Roxy Music legend Bryan Ferry plays Blackpool Opera House on Saturday.

The show, part of a 20-date UK tour, promises a set list of classics, from both his Roxy Music and solo careers, as well as music from album Avonmore, which was released in November.

Ferry’s recent shows, including debuts at Glastonbury and Coachella festivals, have won him critical acclaim and a new generation of fans .

Speaking earlier this year, the iconic frontman said his approach to music had never changed.

“With my career I’ve tried to be as diverse as I can be, I find it an adventure to do different kinds of music.

“I was lucky to be around in the early 1970s, when you felt it was a pioneering time.”

Bryan says he enjoys performing tracks old and new.

“I like to think the music I did on the first Roxy album still feels current today. I play those songs on tour and I love doing them.”

Though famed for his effortlessly cool stage persona, Ferry said being in the spotlight didn’t always come naturally.

“Being on stage was always difficult for me, “ he said.

“I always wanted to be behind the camera, instead of in front of it. It got better over the years, but you still feel edgy before a performance because you want to do the best you can do.”
