Peter Gabriel to celebrate 25th anniversary of So on tour
Peter Gabriel has announced a North American tour in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of his acclaimed album, So. The English singer and former frontman for Genesis will bring his “Front to Back” tour to Massachusetts this fall for a performance at Boston’s TD Garden on Monday, September 24. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $39.50 to $150, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
Released in 1986 and produced by Daniel Lanois (U2, Bob Dylan), So is the best-selling album of Gabriel’s career. His fifth solo studio effort featured hit singles “Sledgehammer”, “Big Time” and “In Your Eyes”. Gabriel also plans to revive the original touring band from the 5-time platinum selling album. In addition to performing So in its entirety, fans can also expect Gabriel to deliver a set of greatest hits and other fan favorites.
To coincide with the tour, Gabriel will re-release So on September 18 on CD, special edition 3-CD set, and a super deluxe box set.
Gabriel toured last summer in support of 2011′s New Blood, a collection of orchestral re-recordings of various tracks from throughout his career.
