Peter Gabriel returns to UK

Peter Gabriel has confirmed a seven-date UK tour in which he'll perform classic solo album So in full.

He’s backed by the live band who backed the 1986 release – guitarist David Rhodes, bassist Tony Levin, keyboardist David Sancious and drummer Many Katche.

Gabriel says of the Back To Front dates, which are part of a wider European tour: “We serve it up in three parts, like a meal. The starter will be an acoustic bit, almost like we would be in rehearsal. From that starter we move onto the savoury dish, which is electric or electronic stuff.

“If you survive that you get your dessert – the complete and uninterrupted So, in the order in which it was originally intended.”

Gabriel was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame earlier this month. He recently admitted work on a new solo album was progressing slowly, saying: “I get distracted. But I have technology and a few projects at the moment that keep me going. I’m itching to get back to more writing.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
