(Adam Whitehead)

Stylish and sophisticated, English music icon Bryan Ferry has embarked on his first North American concert tour in three years, dubbed the “Can’t Let Go Tour.” The set list includes Ferry’s biggest hits and beloved cover tunes, as well as a few rarities from his more than 40 years in popular music.

The sharply dressed singer with the retro soul has recorded such favorites as “Street Life,” “A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall,” “Let’s Stick Together,” “Slave to Love” and others. Concertgoers may also hear some entirely new songs from his 2012 album “The Jazz Age” (with the Bryan Ferry Orchestra).

The 68-year-old singer and co-founder of Roxy Music began his solo career in 1973, but in recent years, remixes and remakes of some of his songs by younger groups have helped him connect with a new audience. Opening is New York pop, rock and folk artist dawn Landes.

7:30 p.m. Monday, April 7, at McCaw Hall, Seattle Center; $45-$65 (877-784-4849 or stgpresents.org).
