British musical icon Bryan Ferry has announced his first North American Tour in three years. The Can’t Let Go Tour will feature an incredible set list of hits, favorites and rarities spanning 40 years of career highlights.
The Can’t Let Go Tour makes a stop at The Pearl inside Palms Casino Resort on April 12, 2014 at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $49, plus any additional service fees. In addition to these newly announced dates, Ferry will also make his Coachella debut in Indio this April.
From his earliest recordings with Roxy Music at the beginning of the 1970s, Bryan Ferry has taken his place as one of the most iconic and innovative artists to emerge in popular music. In his work you hear a vocal and lyrical brilliance that merges the intensity of Lou Reed, the poise of Sinatra and the charisma of Serge Gainsbourg. But then there is something extra – a verve and performance so ultra-modern that it continually breaks new ground.
Last year Ferry celebrated the 40th year anniversary of his career as a singer and songwriter by rearranging his own compositions and recording them in a 1920s style with his very own Jazz Orchestra, The Bryan Ferry Orchestra, for the instrumental album The Jazz Age. It was after hearing The Jazz Age that Baz Luhrmann asked Ferry to record the ’20s music for the film The Great Gatsby. This included rearranging elements of the score and also recording in a period style the contemporary songs that Luhrmann and Jay-Z had selected for the movie, all of which have been recently released on the companion Gatsby soundtrack album Yellow Cocktail Music.
Currently, Ferry is in the studio with The Bryan Ferry Orchestra working on new material, having been inspired by The Jazz Age. In addition, his music is reaching a new audience with remixes and remakes of his classics by artists such as Groove Armada and Todd Terje (https://soundcloud.com/bryanferry/sets/dont-stop-the-dance-remixes).
Doors at the Pearl will open at 7 p.m. and show time is 8 p.m. The Pearl Box Office is open daily from noon until 7 p.m. with extended hours on select event days. Follow The Pearl on Twitter at @PearlatPalms for concert announcements and event information.
