LONDON (AP) - Roxy Music singer Bryan Ferry has been released from hospital after falling ill and being admitted for tests.

The singer’s publicist, Murray Chalmers PR, said in a statement that the 65-year-old was admitted for 24 hours of observation and tests, but was discharged Wednesday.

The statement said “all is well” and Ferry will begin a European solo tour later this month as planned.

Ferry, known for his style and charm, has had a recording career spanning nearly 40 years.


Roxy Music released its first single, “Virginia Plain,” in 1972, and went on to have hits throughout the 1970s and 80s.

Ferry has recently been on a world tour with the band.

He has also enjoyed a successful solo career and released his latest album, “Olympia,” last year.
