Peter Gabriel to perform So in full at UK gigs (2013)
Story by Jack Foley
PETER Gabriel is to perform his seminal 1986 album So in full at a series of UK gigs next year.
The former Genesis star re-issued the album last month in a deluxe edition box-set edition to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
The album’s hits include Sledgehammer, Don’t Give Up, featuring Kate Bush, and Mercy Street.
Gabriel will be backed on the tour by bassist Tony Levin, guitarist David Rhodes, keyboardist David Sancious and drummer Manu Katche.
Tickets for the Back to Front dates are available to fanclub members this Wednesday, November 21 at 9am and go on general sale on Friday, November 23 at 9am.
The run of dates include two nights at London’s O2 Arena.
Gabriel commented: “Time leaves an indelible stamp on everything. When you revisit your past you can no longer live inside it, but you can walk around it, open up old memories and occasionally catch the scent of some place in which you lived.”
The full UK tour dates are (all October 2013):
21 & 22 – London, The O2
24 – Glasgow, The Hydro
25 – Manchester Arena
