More information about Peter Gabriel tickets
Following the phenomenal response to the recent ‘Back to Front’ tour dates, the latest honoured musician to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,Peter Gabriel, has confirmed a further series of ‘Back to Front’ arena shows in the UK. He returns to London’s Wembley Arena for the first time in 10 years.
It is testament to the enduring appeal of Gabriel’s 1986 album that the ‘Back to Front’ tour has caught the public imagination so strongly once again. The new shows will continue to feature the original ‘So’ live band (bass-wizard Tony Levin, guitarist David Rhodes, keyboardist David Sancious and drummer Manu Katche) and span Gabriel’s illustrious career, including a performance of ‘So’ in its entirety.
As well as celebrating the ‘So’ album the tour has also been an opportunity for Peter to play some new material live for the first time. Tracks like ‘Daddy Long Legs’ and ‘Show Yourself’ (from the film Words with Gods) both featured regularly during the 2013 tour to fantastic audience reactions. The theme of showcasing new material, alongside the old, is sure to remain in the forthcoming shows.
THE STANDING AREA IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR UNDER 14S
