It will see singer Bryan Ferry, saxophonist Andy Mackay, guitarist Phil Manzanera and drummer Paul Thompson perform dates across the US and UK in 2022.

Fans can get their hands on tickets from ticketmaster.co.uk and ticketmaster.com.

It’s also been confirmed that they’ll be joined by St. Vincent during the US leg of the tour, while the UK support is yet to be announced.

Fans can expect to hear their greatest hits during the tour, including “Editions of You”, “Love Is the Drug” and “Out of the Blue”.

The self-titled debut album was released in 1972 and received positive reviews from critics, and reached the top 10 on the UK albums chart.

Artists including Scissor Sisters, Nile Rodgers, Kate Bush and Goldfrapp are among those who have noted Roxy Music’s influence, and in 2019 the group were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In 2015 Manzanera claimed the band had recorded a new album together during their first major reunion, but decided against releasing it.

He told Classic Rock: “We all listened to it and thought, ‘We can’t do this. It’s not going to be any good. Let’s just bin it.’”

“And so it’s just sitting there on our personal computers. Maybe one day it’ll get finished. But there’s no point in putting it out if it’s not great,” he added.
