Since their formation in 1972, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, Roxy Music have left an indelible mark on the worlds of music, fashion and art, merging the three with a singular and astonishing vision that brought them immediate, global success. Today they are regarded as one of the most influential bands of all time, whose work has inspired generations of musicians. Intense, emotive, and clever, with iconic graphics, Roxy Music’s eight studio albums birthed the art-rock movement, blurring the lines between genres and infusing a new kind of glamour into rock music for the first time.
Very special guest St. Vincent will be appearing on all North American shows (*except Boston). Since making her recorded debut as St. Vincent in 2007, Annie Clark has consistently been regarded as one of the most innovative and fascinating presences in modern music, continually reinventing her unique sounds and personae—and winning two GRAMMY Awards in the process. Most recently, St. Vincent channeled the hungover glamour and gritty sepia-toned soundtrack of 1970s downtown NYC into the triumphant Daddy’s Home, released in May 2021 to universal acclaim. Outside of recording and performing, St. Vincent has designed her own Ernie Ball Signature guitar, and co-written and starred as a fictionalized version of herself in the upcoming film The Nowhere Inn.
2022 marks a year of celebration for Roxy Music. Throughout the year, each of their eight studio albums, all heralded as modern classics, will be reissued as special anniversary editions with a new half-speed cut, revised artwork and a deluxe gloss laminated finish. The first 2 LPs, “Roxy Music” and “For Your Pleasure”, will be released on April 1, 2022, with the remaining albums arriving in paired drops throughout the year. All albums will be available on pre-order HERE.
