“I don’t think we’re going to do any more shows. I think our job is done. When we stopped touring in 2011, Andy (Mackay) and I looked at each other and said ‘Our job is done here’.” These were the words of guitarist Phil Manzanera.
Roxy Music’s last album was in 1982, Avalon, but they had toured since they reformed in 2001 until 2011.
“It’s unfortunate for the fans, really, because they would like you to play the same old stuff forever and ever. And they go see it and they feel like, ‘Man, they aren’t good as they used to be’. I’m very happy doing new things. I’ve got a couple of albums coming in the next years.”
Guitarist also announces good news for fans, next year they will release some box sets of the first two albums with all sorts of things as extra Brian Eno ingredients and stuff. Furthermore, Manzanera worked the production of Pink Floyd´s new album The Endless River and David Gilmour plans a tour when he finishes his next album: “If he (Gilmour) wants me on that tour, I’ll be there.”
