Are you a Roxy Music fan with more money than sense? Are you vexed by the unsightly piles of cash gathering dust on the divan in your guest wing? Perhaps you’re weighing that trip to outer space for your 50th birthday with Sir Richard? Do you wish that you could make that special occasion just a little more special with the touch that only The Maestro®, Mr. Bryan Ferry could impart to your event? If so this could be your lucky day. Because when we go spelunking in the vastness of the web, rest assured that there’s much more than just pornography and cat memes lurking out there to find!
I can’t remember where or how I came across this page, but I made sure to save that URL, because Mr. Ferry is amenable to private bookings that would undoubtedly make your special gathering the toast of metropolitan café society! On both continents! And with hiring Mr. Ferry to sing, one gets access to not only his enviable canon of songs he’s written but also his equally impressive catalog of transformative cover versions for which he is equally well known! Making the notion almost a BOGO of Bryan Ferry and the Great American Songbook™ all for just one price!
You know you want to. Dare you? If so, then click that very real button below as this is no science-fiction adventure…this is the real thing!
Uh, there’s a lot more from the same agency(t) here, and Mr. Ferry would be pretty far down my list given this astounding collection! Thanks ppm, that was a fun read.

rangster – It does boggle the mind, doesn’t it? I just did the near-infinite scroll of the roster and there were 35 acts that are in my Record Cell. Though I did notice that some acts were in the list multiple times. But Bryan Ferry would still top out my gig wish list. Though maybe OMD could too.
Probably want to update that Depeche Mode photo.
Can I book Nick Cave, St. Vincent, Massive Attack & Haim for the same gig with the rule that they have to perform as one band?

Tim – It depends. Do you have your own space program for a start?
Fine I’ll start a gofundme.
I bet they would do a kicking version of “Where the Wild Rose Grow.”
Ah hah! I wondered how OMD could take back seat to Mr. Ferry for your personal living room concert. 35 living acts from the cell? Not bad. A number that’s sure to diminish significantly over the next decade or two, so see ’em when you can!
I shudder to think what one would have to pay for a date with Annie St. V but money has nothing to do with intensity, does it? It would be a happening of sidelong consequence. The agency accountants rejoice. You attain true nirvana. Over and out.
rangster – As much as I love OMD [hint: a LOT] Ferry is still the more significant artist in the grand scheme of things. But OMD can still give a performance that is no longer possible for the elder Ferry.
They can perform together.
Ferry handling the vox on Souvenier? A sorta hushed whisper…
It would be enough for me to reconsider paying for some OMD content!
I had a set list cooked up for my quartet but have kept my mouth shut.
Tim – Ferry on “Souvenir” is actually a brilliant call!
OMG – that list of groups is amazing – I like most of them and they span across the generations as well.
By the way, some of my European friends (who are super live concert aficionados) just saw Roxy (with Bryan) in London…said it was a great show.
Break, break – oddest concert I went to this year was Kraftwerk in 3-D in Bonn outside with an audience of mainly Germans….uhh, interesting, but Kraftwerk was great.
And, yes, Andy and the rest of OMD can still do a great show. His voice is still amazing – I got my 2-CD set of the Royal Albert Hall show and it is phenomenal.
Deserat – OMD have too many live albums for my taste now and I no longer buy each one. Still, they’re no Gary Numan who releases at least one live album per tour! And none of his are compelling to me.
Deserat – Actual Germans at a Kraftwerk concert??! This seems new to me. I recall my best friend in 4th grade moved away to Germany where his dad was stationed. He visited where he moved from three years later. I was in 7th grade by then and asked him about how Kraftwerk were regarded in their own country. He said that every body listened to Jethro Tull! Who was Kraftwerk?!
