Bryan Ferry to Play Newmarket Nights

The Jockey Club Live are please to announce Bryan Ferry as the latest artist to join the Newmarket Nights 2020 summer line-up, headlining on Friday 26th June 2020.

Achieving immediate and sensational success in the early 1970s with his group Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry has taken his place as one of the most iconic and innovative singers and lyricists in popular music. 

Roxy Music’s eight studio albums are acclaimed as modern classics, with Ferry’s solo work shaping the course of contemporary rock and pop music. Behind classic songs such as ‘Slave To Love’, ‘More Than This’, ‘Avalon’ and ‘Love Is The Drug’, Ferry has continually affirmed his position as a musical icon. With the rare distinction of being regarded as both classic and contemporary, he is acknowledged as the writer and singer of some of the most loved pop songs, and a driving force in the avant-garde.

As a member of Roxy Music and solo, Ferry has sold over 30 million records worldwide. In addition, he has won countless awards and was inducted into the ‘Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’ as part of Roxy Music, in 2019.

‘Bryan Ferry is a fantastic addition to the Newmarket Nights line-up and we’re excited to see his live show here on Friday 26th June. With many a hit in his own right, we’re also looking forward to hearing an array of Roxy Music classics!’
