Not in the US obviously…Americans preferred lumpen meathead rockers like Zeppelin …not suave, stylish Roxy

In the UK they are the most important band of the 1970s. I have them even ahead of the Sex Pistols.

Their influence on the 1980s New Romantics and the entire new British Invasion incalculable.

Pick up and read any biography by 80s UK musicians and it’s always about Bowie and Roxy. And you can even take it further as Brian Eno was originally in Roxy and I think he has to be one of the more influential people in popular music. Dude produced DEVO, Talking Heads, U2 just for starters and obviously shaped Bowie’s Berlin trilogy

Important note: Eno is not joining them on tour…. I think it would have sold better if he was

Can you imagine being the guy who bought 2 front row tix for probably $1500 and brings a date, who likely has no idea who RM is
and sees 2500 people in a 25k seat arena

Yup Eno I think does not play live anymore.

But I mean he is only on the first two records. Most people don’t know the other members but Manzanera is no slouch and the drummer is fantastic. Andy Mackay on sax. They are all awesome musicians.

Of course seeing Eno with Roxy would be great but I don’t think that he has played live with them in almost 50 years so anyone expecting that doesn’t know Roxy Music.

Roxy Music is on Goldstar for about half price for a variety of seating locations/price ranges.

Why the hell they were booked there is beyond me. There's not a chance they would sell even half the venue. A two night stand at Anthem would have been better.

I think one night at Anthem would  have done it… but this seems to be a thing with the entire tour

completely unfounded theory: RM wasn't willing to hit the road for a club & theater tour.  promoters had to entice them with stadium offers, which appealed to the band's self-perception/ego but, as ticket sales show, has no foundation in reality.  now promoters are stuck trying to salvage this tour and pull in whoever for whatever price, in hopes of not losing their shirts.

Promoters have to be losing more than their shirts on this one
Although they may have sold enough $250 tickets to cover 10k people in the old price model for area shows

I know we won’t, but I would like to see the Ballance  sheet for this show


Also, most important British 70s band… I can’t get on board with that even remotely.  I could see top 10, or slightly better
Would like to hear other bordies on this take

Big influence on heavy metal and a few fringe genres but popular music? No.

I don't think Americans go to arena shows in 2022 just based on the fact that a band was influential 50 years ago.
