Peter Gabriel has kicked off his eagerly anticipated i/o world tour with a show at the 18,000-capacity Tauron Arena Kraków, Poland. Playing his first full solo engagement since the final date of 2014's Back To Front tour, the former Genesis man played a 23-song set dominated by songs from his upcoming i/o album.    

Gabriel played all five singles released from the album so far – i/oPanopticomThe Court, Playing For Time and Four Kinds Of Horses – and gave world premieres to five more, reportedly titled Olive Tree, Home, Road To Joy, And Still (dedicated to Gabriel's mother) and Live And Let Live. Elsewhere there were a scattering of old favourites, including Sledgehammer, Red Rain, Don't Give Up, Big Time and Solsbury Hill.    

Gabriel finished by encoring with two more favourites, In Your Eyes - originally a 1986 duet with Youssou N'Dour – and the apartheid-era protest anthem Biko. The next show on the tour will be on Saturday evening at the Arena di Verona in Verona, Italy.
