Win tickets to see Peter Gabriel in LA and NY

Peter Gabriel is touring Scratch My Back and in line with the pared-down recording of the album, the New Blood Tour is Peter Gabriel, orchestra, no drums, no guitars.

Society of Sound is proud to be able to offer a pair of tickets to see Peter Gabriel perform at Radio City, New York on 3rd May and a pair for the Hollywood Bowl gig on the 7th May.

The album has received stunning reveiws and if you can’t make it to any of the shows, don’t forget that if you join Society of Sound you can get an exclusive 24-bit FLAC download of Scratch My Back which means you have a studio-quality version and can hear the album as it was intended to be heard.

All you have to do is tell us here which song you wish Peter had covered.

    Lyle Lovett’s – North Dakota. I would like to hear PG do it sparse and LL would do justice to any PG composition.

    But…I would second XTC – “Wrapped in Grey”

  • Michelle says:

    Elton John’s “Ticking”

  • Lance says:

    Johnny Cash’s cover of Trent Reznor’s “Hurt”

    Peter would sound amazing sing a song with amazing lyics

    Joseph Arhtur – “In the Sun”

    Police – Bring on the Night!

  • Christopher Owens says:

    Bill Withers, “Ain’t no Sunsine”

    Since PG was really focusing on the lyrics with this album, I would have loved to have heard him cover THEY DANCE ALONE by STING. Very Powerful song, would’ve sounded great stripped down by Peter.

    and I would give a limb to hear Ryan cover Mercy Street.
