Peter Gabriel Announces North American Tour BACK TO FRONT to Celebrate 25th Anniversary of Gabriel’s Groundbreaking, Iconic Album So

”…how profoundly powerful music can be in the hands of an absolute master like Peter Gabriel.” TIX: http://PETERGABRIEL.jonesbeach.com
Following a critically acclaimed New Blood tour in 2011 that reignited Peter Gabriel fans across the world by reimagining his best known songs through stunning orchestral arrangements, Gabriel announced today his return to U.S. stages to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his groundbreaking, iconic album So.

Focusing on the entirety of that multi-platinum album, the tour, entitled BACK TO FRONT, will feature Gabriel with members of the original So touring band and will feature the album’s songs from start to finish plus some of his other biggest hits.
To coincide with the tour, So will be re-issued on September 18th as a CD, special edition 3-CD set, and Super Deluxe Box Set. So is the best-selling album of Gabriel’s career and debuted at the top of the music charts around the world going on to achieve 5-times platinum sales and becoming one of the most seminal albums of the 1980’s. It features hits such as ”Sledgehammer,” ”Big Time,” ”Red Rain,” the haunting duet ”Don’t Give Up” with Kate Bush, and one of the most iconic songs of all time ”In Your Eyes.” The songs were also part of the emerging video revolution and the groundbreaking ”Sledgehammer” became one of the most awarded video’s of its time. To this date, ”Sledgehammer” remains the most played video of all time on MTV.
Peter Gabriel first came to international prominence with the success of Genesis, a band that he co-founded while still at school. Since leaving Genesis in 1975, his recording career has included seven studio albums, film soundtracks for Alan Parker’s ‘Birdy’, Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ and Philip Noyce’s ‘Rabbit Proof Fence’ as well as live and compilation albums. His wider musical career has included multiple Grammy Awards, the creation of the Real World record label, and in 1980 the creation of WOMAD, the festival that has launched the careers of many world music artists.
Peter Gabriel co-founded the human rights organization Witness.org in 1989, the organization that pioneered the use of technology in human rights campaigning, and in 2007 the Elders.org was launched by Nelson Mandela, which was founded by Peter Gabriel and Sir Richard Branson. In 2006, Peter Gabriel was awarded the prestigious Man of Peace title by The Nobel Peace Laureates and in 2008 was also included in the Time 100 list. He has also engaged in a wide variety of tech-based businesses throughout a variety of creative industries.
