Peter Gabriel hits the summer roads again for orchestra tour
Peter Gabriel is taking his New Blood Tour back on the road this summer in North America. And before you start pouring over the tour dates below, allow me to tell fans of his in the Southeast this news: He's not coming anywhere near us. Presumably the man who gave us Games Without Frontiers and Sledgehammer and Red Rain will melt in extreme humidity.
Gabriel is touring with an orchestra for this trip (conducted by Ben Foster). The setlist will still include hits from throughout his career, but obviously rearranged a little for this unique presentation.
Anyhoo, tickets for the lucky ones living near a tour stop go on sale April 4. Here are the dates...
