Bryan Ferry has become the latest in a list of influential pop legends to confirm their place on the Thetford Forest stage this summer.
The Roxy Music frontman has announced he will perform on Saturday, July 16, as part of the Forestry Commission's live music programme.
Ferry's long career has combined solo success with his role as the singer, lyricist and principal composer for Roxy Music, generating a catalogue of chart hits including Love Is The Drug, Let's Stick Together, Slave To Love, Avalon, Jealous Guy, and Don't Stop The Dance.
