WHITE tuxedos and a cool art- school attitude. This is the enduring image many people have of music legend Bryan Ferry.

He will bring his mix of pop art and rock to the Regent Theatre in Ipswich on October 4.

Bryan began his career in the bars and clubs of Newcastle and soon became the pivotal member of Roxy Music.

For many years the band pushed back the boundaries of musical taste. Along with Marc Bolan's T-Rex, they were the innovative face of the glam rock scene. Their first single, Virginia Plain, was considered revolutionary when it was released in July, 1972.

In the late 1980s Ferry became disillusioned with the band and struck out on his own – with great success.

He carried on making new and ground-breaking music which critics often found impossible to categorise.

Bryan is best known for classics like Let's Stick Together and his single Jealous Guy, a tribute to John Lennon, which went straight into the chart at No.1 in February 1981.

He was recently called "the godfather of contemporary style" by a critic in The Sunday Times and he continues to make music in his own unique manner.

He will release a new album, called Frantic, on April 29.
