Statement from Bryan's Facebook page after having to end the show three tracks early:-

Pittsburgh - thank you for being such a wonderful audience tonight and for being so understanding when we had our technical breakdown. We are very sorry it took such a long time to create a way for me to address you all so I could apologise.
Hope to see you soon.
Much love,
BF

Man, it's a damn shame that a gig falls to bits with technical difficulties.

While I love the 21st century reverence of our American journalist cousins towards Bryan these days, things like "In every dream home a heartbreak" do my head in....there is another one on there too but I'm too hacked off to mention it.

...........and on to the next stage of the tour. :)

11th May, Teatro Arcimboldi, Milan, Italy.

In Milan we saw a gorgeous Bryan Ferry
12 May 2017
The Arcimboldi Theater, Milan, 11 May 2017. There is little to do: after so many years, 45 for the accuracy, the magic and the class of Bryan Ferry and his music remain unaltered. Roxy Music's leader literally charmed a theater filled up to the last place with an absolutely perfect mix of old and new hits (the latter really few, to say the truth), almost entirely fired from the British band repertoire that gave him The celebrity.

Ferry is in great shape, and it is understood by both the enthusiasm with which he responds to the continuous demonstrations of affection of his audience, and by a voice that he does not see falls for any of the 120 minutes of the show. The band, featuring a magnificent Chris Spedding on the guitar, is an old acquaintance of those who love British classic rock, is one of the great occasions and is perfectly suited to the rosiest tracks of Roxy Music Glam, as well as the soundtrack More skinned and new romantic characters that featured the band's Eighties, as well as hit solo albums such as Boys And Girls.

It is precisely from the 1985 masterpiece that after the opening song, the old latin lover extracted Slave To Love, the first of a long series of super hits of the evening, even though the concert finally begins with the next Ladytron , From the incredible debut of 1972, which launches twenty minutes completely dedicated to the group's glamor period, what he still saw in training Brian Eno.

The fact that there are no new albums to be promoted reveals a manna from the sky for those who first attend a concert of one of the great survivors of a period that year after year continues to lose ninety pieces. In this sense, the ghost of David Bowie is constantly on the heads of the present and on that of the star of the evening: a little like the friend who disappeared last year, albeit in a different and different way, Ferry has in fact been able to reinvent himself Without losing a bit of credibility and maintaining that typically British class that has characterized the entire career.

It is pointless to point out the buzz with which fans have accompanied every classical discography, especially More Than This, Love Is The Drug and Re-Make / Re-Model (for the writers, the absolute summit of the evening), though surprises Larger ones have reserved the covers chosen for this European tour tranche. In the middle of a concert, Neil Young's Like A Hurricane was so crappy and credible to sound like a song out of his pen, and finally, just before the big finale entrusted to Editions Of You, a chilling Jealous Guy. In short, the show ideally entrusted with the task of kicking off the Milan summer concert season is one of the best in the entire billboard. We'll be back in September.

Saturday 13 May, Circus Krone, Munich, Germany.

http://www.abendzeitung-muenchen.de/inh ... e13a0.html

Google translation:-

On Saturday the British singer and songwriter Bryan Ferry appeared in Munich. In the sold out Circus Krone presented the 71-year-old classic as well as surprising cover interpretations. The AZ review.
Munich - Snob remains Snob, even over the decades. So, as always, with Bryan Ferry, the king of the melancholic Poprock? Well, not quite. The concept is still the same, but the implementation does not always work as the artist might want. After all, with his now 71 years, he is no longer as agile as ever. And that is his right. And that he sometimes makes a vocal bow around particularly extreme melody peaks, as well. However, Bryan Ferry and his fellow musicians were frenetically celebrated in the sold out Circus Krone.
At first a bit irritated: Ferry presents an unfamiliar tempo. No "Good evening", not a single binding word, only the musicians are presented. The songs strung strung and beat on beat. No sooner will the fans have time to applaud. Is he in a hurry? Does he still need to reach the S-Bahn?
An image between Daddy Cool and Dandy
But the repertoire, which he had brought, immediately made up for something. Because it is mainly about pieces from the era of Roxy Music. "Beauty Queen", "Ladytron", "Stranger Trough The Years" and also the bitchy composition "Re-make / Re-Model", which really is The old oblique times. Nevertheless, towards the end of the evening, hits such as "More Than This", "Avalon" and "Love Is The Drug".
In the covers beside the mandatory Ferry interpretations "Let's Stick Together" by Wilbart Harrison and "Jealous Guy" by John Lennon a surprise: "Like A Hurricane" by Neil Young, which as an original is so hard and unpolished You can not really imagine it in the chic designer suit with tear in buttonhole. But it works. Even the wild guitar solo is credibly translated.
The fascination emanating from Ferry is still his voice with the sad vibrato and his entire image between Daddy Cool and Dandy. He has created an individuality which makes him unattainable and for which far-reaching successors are not in sight. And this will remain so for some time.

Shamelessly grandiose Bryan Ferry

Each time the same game with Bryan Ferry. Determined not to be lulled by this bourgeois dancer of salon pop, one goes to the concert. And the old Schmaltzlocke forces you then again relentlessly in the knees.
The concert critique:
At the start of his tour of Germany at the Circus Krone, Ferry proves that he still plays in his own league, even though a very soft whiff of hoarseness is above the voice. But this is so discreet and stylish that it might be intent, who knows this already with this savvy entertainer. There is no one else who is so well mastered to let these wonderfully subversive songs flow so elegantly into the hall until they subcutaneously pour out their sweet poison.
Because it's so catchy and catchy, this mix of jazzy new wave, artificial punk and decadent skirt is so refined. And Ferry has an excellent band in his luggage, which sounds like Roxy Music. Ferry builds on much early material from his one-time band, which is a good idea to play a hall into delirium. Just as a professional security man always chases a second ball, Ferry fights shamelessly Gassenhauer like More than This or Let's stick together to give us the rest with Jealous Guy. And you can find him once again terrific, this snob, who so wittily as the queen of England. Next time we resist. At least we try.
