Roxy Music and Bryan Ferry reform for one night to celebrate their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Ferry will be reuniting with some of his former Roxy Music bandmates for the group’s first performance in eight years this weekend.

He will join Andy Mackay and guitarist Phil Manzanera for the special performance, but other Roxy Music members Paul Thompson and Brian Eno will not be in attendance.

Several other musicians who have performed with Ferry and Roxy Music over the years will also join the trio, including Chris Spedding, Neil Jason and Fonzi Thornton.

The 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class will also feature Radiohead, The Cure, Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, Def Leppard and The Zombies.

The ceremony takes place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Sunday, March 31, and airs on HBO television in the United States on Saturday, April 27.

Meanwhile, Bryan Ferry continues his world tour in May, which will see him perform songs from Roxy Music’s Avalon album, as well as his other solo hits and Roxy Music.

Roxy Music’s last album dates from 1982 Avalon. In 2005, they started recording a new album, but it later became a Ferry solo album instead in 2010, with contributions from Eno, Manzanera and Mackay.

The group performed a series of 40th anniversary shows in 2011, marking their last performance together so far.
