The band's upcoming 50th anniversary tour will mark the first time Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, Paul Thompson and Phil have performed together on stage since 2011's 'For Your Pleasure' tour.

AceShowbiz - Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera says the band's upcoming 50th anniversary tour would be "beneath" Brian Eno.

The glam rock legends' first jaunt in 11 years kicks off in September in Canada and includes three dates in the United Kingdom. The tour will mark the first time Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, Paul Thompson and Phil have performed together on stage since 2011's "For Your Pleasure" tour.

Former member Brian, who played synths and was backing vocalist briefly between 1970 and 1973, allegedly has been invited. However, he will not be part of the reunion.

"What would he do for the songs he wasn't on?" the 71-year-old guitarist said when speaking to MOJO magazine. "Just hang around? It would be a bit beneath him."

Their return to the United States brings back wild memories of being pelted with water bombs and called "f******" at their shows there early on in their career. "Playing 'Re-Make/Re-Model' and 'The Bob', despite having water bombs thrown at us while being called f****** and what have you," Phil recalled.

Phil joked that he'd like to see their American fans get "glammed" up and wear feathers to honor Eno's androgynous style. "In fact, I want people to come dressed up, glammed up!" he quipped. "I want to see people in feathers, in tribute to Eno."
