Hi everyone,
 
Tony Levin announced that this fall will see a Gabriel US tour, text and dates from his site follow: hopefully this means Manu Katche back on the throne too!
 
 
 
Here's some big news: Peter Gabriel has just announced that in September there will be a band tour commemorating the 25th anniversary of the SO album.
It'll be Canada and the U.S, and it will have much of the backup band that did the original tour, 25 years ago!.

The tour name is Back to Front and I've got the current confirmed tour dates below on this page. (there may be a few more coming.)
I don't think tickets are on sale yet - this is just the first announcement of the tour.

Sept 16   Quebec City / Colisee Pepsi
Sept 18   Montreal / Bell Centre
Sept 19   Toronto / Air Canada Centre
Sept 21   Philadelphia / Wells Fargo Centre
Sept 24   Boston / TD Garden
Sept 26   Detroit / Palace of Auburn Hills
Sept 27   Chicago / United Center
Sept 30   Denver / Red Rocks
Oct 2   San Jose / HP Pavillion
Oct 5   Las Vegas / Planet Hollywood Showroom
Oct 6   Los Angeles / Hollywood Bowl
Oct 9   Santa Barbara / County Bowl
More dates as they are confirmed

Good news yet it seems new music has dried upUnhappy Would imagine this tour would be great though, reviving the who So album. I see the song " Big Time" now forms a new Samsung advert here in the USA

im hoping Pete just needed to get some middle aged BS out of his system with the orchestra, and now perhaps will be revivified by working with the great musicians he has always assembled and generate something new

Let's hope for some new material as well.

Anyone know the touring lineup?

It's a bit strange... or frustrating, that Gabriel would choose a nostalgia trip with one of his own solo older albums... but just won't go far enough to do the same with his time on Genesis. I would be much more interested in attending a Steve Hackett show if he would come around to doing his Genesis Revisited tour.

^ vary valid I am amazed that PG never has let rip live with some of the Genesis material. He has got so much to be proud of from that era.

He's pretty much turned his back on all solo stuff from the '70's as well as with Genesis.  I don't get this trashing of his orchestral thing.  I have the DVD of that and it's quite good.  I'd rather there be a long break between albums rather than put something out just because he's expected to.

One way to look at it is he was with Genesis for about 5 years & he's been a solo artist for about 36/37 years (even the Milton Keynes one-off Genesis reunion was 30 years ago now); much as we'd all like him to revisit some of what we consider to be his glory era, I think PG considers it all to be part of a different long ago life.

I love the solo material & really enjoyed the orchestral show last year (stunning evening!), but as yet, I've never seen him with a band except on the 'Secret World' DVD.

Really hope he announces a UK tour.

He is brilliant, Jim, and well worth the trip.

You are spot on re the Genesis stuff as well. He was doing this first time out I saw him (couple of tracks from the Lamb), but since about 1980, none whatsoever, and rightly so IMHO.

Well, since I've not hear anything from him solo, and love his work with Genesis, I'm very partial towards wanting to hear that material. And I'm not really so much interested in looking into his solo material, at least not in the near future, since as a matter of fact I've never been much of a fan of his way of singing, and The Lamb is my least favourite of his albums with Genesis (and I understand he sort of went this way), and I understand he never went back to doing the long, epic, symphonic stuff again, which is all I love of his albums with Genesis. On the other hand, I may be a bit interested in the description of some of his work as world music.

I never thought about it that way.  Makes me feel old. LOL

My last Gabriel show was the Secret World tour (still have the t-shirt).  You know, I've been to many stadium scale shows in my day but they just aren't worth the ticket price.  The thing I remember most was after the show the MARTA train I was on broke down in a tunnel and it was packed with fans.  We all had to get out and walk to the next station.  That is weird on so many levels...

Not to mention So was 10 times more successful than all of those albums he did with Genesis combined. Wink Might have a lot to do with it. 

 I am taking a pass on this one.  I do not like the Hollywood Bowl.  I saw Genesis last tour there and Peter's scratch my back tour in 2010 there.  if you can't get into the first two sections you seat on an aluminum bench and are packed together like sardines on it.  Just a very uncomfortable experience and it ruins the quality of the show.  Oh and tickets for those first two sections will be $150 and up. Sorry not this time.
