Bryan Ferry has invited Roisin O to join his as special guest for his two shows at The Olympia Theatre on 08 & 09 June.
Dublin-born Róisín O is one of the most promising artists to emerge from the competitive Irish music scene in recent times. She has shared both stage and studio with some of Ireland’s leading artists, showing an expressive voice full of warmth and depth, and proved that combining a unique songwriting style with a commitment to hard work is still the best way to progress.
Roisin released her debut album ‘The Secret Life of Blue’ in September 2012.
Bryan Ferry’s highly anticipated show will feature a set list that combines both Roxy Music and solo hits and will include songs from Ferry’s recent critically acclaimed release ‘Avonmore’, described as “his best album in 30 years”.
Ferry’s shows so far this year have seduced a new generation of fans and received unanimously rave reviews with the likes of Mail on Sunday’s EVENT (*****) stating ‘Ferry has style, as everybody says, but also soul and subtlety and stamina. Maybe this man is worth more than a CBE’, with The Independent (****) calling the show ‘simply thrilling’.
From his earliest recordings with his group Roxy Music, at the beginning of the 1970s, Bryan Ferry has taken his place as one of the most iconic and innovative singers and lyricists to emerge in popular music. In his music you hear an original vocal brilliance which merges – with effortless, breathtaking elegance – the poise of Sinatra, the charisma of Gainsbourg and the intensity of Johnnie Ray. But then there was something extra – a quality of nuance, verve and performance which seemed so ultra-modern, and so refined, that it seemed to break wholly new ground.
