Last year’s Scratch My Back album saw Peter Gabriel re-inventing works by Lou Reed, David Bowie and Radiohead among others using a full orchestra. This led to the sell-out New Blood tour and rave reviews.
So successful was this project, he has decided to apply the same orchestal makeovers to his own back catalogue and will be touring these songs before the release of the album ‘New Blood’ later on this year.
He is playing a couple of dates in London on the 23rd and 24th March and will then tour the USA and Canada in June. This tour is a chance to experience the reinvention of an iconic song collection from Red Rain to San Jacinto, Digging in the Dirt to Don’t Give Up.
