My wife and I saw Roxy Music at Radio City last night. As we were leaving, we overheard an older woman (I mean older than everybody else there, who were all pretty old – I mean Bryan Ferry is 60) talking to a Radio City employee. She seemed to be saying that she wanted her money back because someone had told her that this concert would feature Radio City’s famed Rockettes. I imagine her patiently waiting throughout the concert vainly hoping that Bryan Ferry and Phil Manzanera would do a high kick line.
There is something of a connection. Samuel L “Roxy” Rothafel was a promoter and brought the Rockettes , first named the Roxyettes, to Radio City. He also designed the Roxy Theater, which was a much-copied movie palace.
Bryan Ferry has indicated that he named his band Roxy Music, in part to suggest movie palaces.
So I think they should give her money back.
“Jealous Guy” was the highlight of the concert.
