The veteran singer topped the bill at Standon Lordship on Sunday night – just days after the tragic death of his ex-wife Lucy Birley.

Ferry played a set mixing Roxy Music album tracks, including ones from the band’s eponymous 1972 debut, and classic hits such as Oh Yeah, Avalon, More Than This, Love Is The Drug and Virginia Plain with solo singles Slave to Love and Don’t Stop the Dance.

He finished his Standon Calling 2018 show with Let’s Stick Together and his poignant cover of John Lennon song Jealous Guy.

Earlier in the evening, Ooh La La stars Goldfrapp also played the main stage at the festival.
