Peter Gabriel: North American Tour


Peter Gabriel
Legendary singer, songwriter and musician Peter Gabriel will tour North America this summer with the New Blood orchestra.

On his last outing, Gabriel redrew the works of Lou Reed, David Bowie, Radiohead. This time out he applies the orchestral makeover to his own back catalogue. The stunning musical backdrop leaves Gabriel's vocals centre-stage and bare, stripped of the usual rock'n'roll clothing, no loud guitars or booming drums to hide behind. Raw and soul-baring yet passionate and often joyous, Gabriel's classic songs here take new shape and extra meaning.

This tour is an opportunity to experience the reinvention of an iconic song selection, from "Red Rain" to "San Jacinto", "Digging in the Dirt" to "Don't Give Up", before the album release of New Blood later this year.
