Peter Gabriel To Perform So Live In UK

Peter Gabriel’s 1986 ‘So’ album was his biggest album ever. It featured his dynamic Kate Bush duet ‘Don’t Give Up’.

Following the phenomenal response to the recent ‘Back to Front’ tour dates, the latest honoured musician to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Peter Gabriel, has confirmed a further series of ‘Back to Front’ arena shows in the UK. He returns to London’s Wembley Arena for the first time in 10 years.

It is testament to the enduring appeal of Gabriel’s 1986 album that the ‘Back to Front’ tour has caught the public imagination so strongly once again. The new shows will continue to feature the original ‘So’ live band (bass-wizard Tony Levin, guitarist David Rhodes, keyboardist David Sancious and drummer Manu Katche) and span Gabriel’s illustrious career, including a performance of ‘So’ in its entirety.

‘We serve it up in three parts; like a meal. The starter will be an acoustic bit, almost like we would be in rehearsal mode. From that acoustic starter we move on to the savoury dish, which is electric or more electronic stuff. If you survive that, then you get your dessert, which is the complete and uninterrupted album of ‘So,’ in the order in which it was originally intended’.

As well as celebrating the ‘So’ album the tour has also been an opportunity for Peter to play some new material live for the first time. Tracks like ‘Daddy Long Legs’ and ‘Show Yourself’ (from the film Words with Gods) both featured regularly during the 2013 tour to fantastic audience reactions. The theme of showcasing new material, alongside the old, is sure to remain in the forthcoming shows.

Dates are as follows:

Fri Nov 28th Birmingham LG Arena
Sun Nov 30th Sheffield Motorpoint Arena
Mon Dec 1st Cardiff Motorpoint Arena
Wed Dec 3rd London SSE Arena Wembley
Sun Dec 7th Liverpool Echo Arena
Mon Dec 8th Aberdeen AECC GE ‘ Gas & Oil Arena
Wed 10th Dublin O2 Arena

Peter Gabriel is offering a unique opportunity to go ‘Behind the Scenes’ and view the Back to Front tour soundcheck for the upcoming shows. Only available in very limited numbers from Peter Gabriel’s official website, this is the chance to buy a special fan experience – a front row or a premium seat ticket, an invitation to the soundcheck, pre-show hospitality and unrepeatable gift.
