Roxy Music is Preparing Something Special to Celebrate the Band’s 50th Anniversary

Roxy Music was one of glam rock's pioneers and trailblazers

As a number of outlets report, Roxy Music is preparing a special, 50th Anniversary treat for its fans with album reissues and an arena tour.

Formed in 1970, Roxy Music would release eight albums together within its 12-year lifespan. Now, five decades since Roxy Music debuted, and 40 years since the band parted ways following the final album Avalon, Ferry, Manzanera, Mackay, and Thompson (Eno left the band after their second album For Your Pleasure) are reissuing all eight of their original albums, each given a half-speed cut remastering at Abbey Road Studios by Miles Showell. The band will also be embarking on an international arena tour—the first since their 2011 For Your Pleasure shows, and 20 years since they’ve played in the U.S.

Roxy Music influenced an intersection of artists across mixed mediums, including music with everyone from the Talking Heads, Nile Rodgers and Chic, the Sex Pistols, Def Leppard, Depeche Mode, and the forthcoming new romantics of the 1980s.
