Roxy Music at Wells Fargo Center

Quintessentially suave frontman Bryan Ferry and the rest of Roxy Music arrive in Philly at the tail end of summer for a stop on a reunion tour to celebrate the influential quartet’s 50th anniversary. Expect a setlist that balances early-’80s classics like “Avalon” and “More Than This,” with “Love Is the Drug” and other edgier ’70s fare, plus Ferry’s timeless cover of John Lennon’s “Jealous Guy.” Triple Grammy-winning chanteuse St. Vincent opens the show.
