Roxy Music founder Bryan Ferry is one of the last surviving glam-rock icons, and he’s hardly slowing down. The ever-dapper Englishman, now 71, has released vital music in each of the last five decades, from Roxy’s supremely danceable glam/prog hybrids in the ’70s, through his lush and seductive ’80s solo material, to his latest album, 2014’s Avonmore, a return to the sound of Ferry’s most successful solo album, ’85’s Boys and Girls (a.k.a. the one with “Slave to Love”). But while Ferry has stayed productive, releasing three solo albums in the 2010s, his set lists these days normally don’t feature any songs more recent than cuts from the ’87 solo LP Bête Noire. Instead, he mostly plays Roxy hits, some older solo stuff, and covers like Dylan’s “Simple Twist of Fate,” Neil Young’s “Like a Hurricane,” and the Velvet Underground’s “What Goes On.” Judith Owen opens.
