Never miss another 'Peter Gabriel' show
Back To Front Tour: Peter Gabriel
Following the phenomenal response to the recently announced UK tour dates, the latest honoured musician to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Peter Gabriel, has confirmed a further show at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on December 4th 2014.
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.
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.
This event takes place at Metro Radio Arena, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Former Charterhouse pupil whose creative, composition and outlandish theatrics helped launch classic rockers Genesis. After leaving he successfully forged a solo career, which he continues dividing his time equally with his Real World music studio in Wiltshire. Gabriel has continually reinvented himself, whether it be the ground-breaking video of 80s hit single Sledgehammer or his soundtrack for The Last Temptation of Christ, and remains as relevant now as he was in the 1970s.
