On Monday, October 2, Roxy Music played a sold-out event at Madison Square Garden as part of their 50th-anniversary tour.
As you might imagine, Bryan Ferry, Phil Manzanera, Andy MacKay, Paul Thompson, and the rest of the band’s current lineup played a set full of classics at MSG that spanned the band’s entire career,
from their early, arty origins to the sleek, sophisticated band they become by the late ’70s.
Bryan Ferry was in fine vocal form in a jovial mood, while Manzanera’s guitar work and Andy MacKay’s sax were as elegant as ever.

The setlist for MSG was the same 20 songs they’ve been playing at all the tour dates so far, though in a slightly different order.
St. Vincent was a great choice to kick things off, since she sang “New York” face to face with the crowd from the front row and even went into the stands at one point.
