Reply to "What concerts have you been to lately?"

Bryan Ferry at Sony Centre in Toronto. Promoted  as “Bryan Ferry performs Avalon”, he actually only did six of that album’s 10 tracks. The rest of the 2 hour show was a mix of other Roxy Music classics and the best of his solo career. Absolutely stellar band - 2 guitars, keys, violinist/keyboardist, sax/keyboardist, bass, drums, and 2 backup singers. At times there were 3 people playing keys, recreating that lush synth-based Roxy sound. Overall, they gave the Roxy Music songs a more muscular and sinewy sound. They had a harder, funkier edge. A bonus was having Chris Spedding on guitar. He’s now 75 and hasn’t lost a step.
