Andy Mackay said: “Roxymphony was an idea that came from the fabulous possibilities of using orchestral strings and other instruments. I had already written the string parts for 3Psalms and it was incredibly exciting for me to assemble all the musicians for the premiere last year and to perform with Phil. Roxymphony was the natural partner and was so well received we felt we just had to do it again.”

Phil Manzanera said: “It’s great to be back on stage with Andy Mackay presenting Roxy’s music in a new context.  It was a revelation to us all how well-suited the songs were to being orchestrated and how much the audience at the QEH seemed to enjoy it…..we’re  now emboldened to hit the road and  share Roxymphony with more of our UK fans.”
