LOS ANGELES, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Peter Gabriel has announced that following successful shows in Los Angeles and New York last year, he will be hitting the road for twelve additional 12 North American dates.
Produced by Live Nation, the tour, titled "New Blood" will kick off on June 10 in 10 in Berkeley, CA. Gabriel will be performing selections from his back catalogue, including hits from the seminal multi-platinum "So", which is marking its 25th anniversary this year. The songs have all been re-arranged by Gabriel and John Metcalf to be performed with orchestral accompaniment and the New Blood Orchestra conducted by Ben Foster will be touring with Gabriel.
Gabriel will be touring "New Blood" ahead of a new album of material recorded with the New Blood Orchestra, set for release later this year.
Peter Gabriel first came to international prominence with the success of Genesis, a band that he co-founded while still at school. Since leaving Genesis in 1975, his recording career has included seven studio albums, film soundtracks for 'Birdy,' 'The Last Temptation of Christ' and 'Rabbit Proof Fence' as well as live and compilation albums. His wider musical career has included multiple Grammy Awards, the creation of the Real World record label, and the creation of the now global WOMAD festival.
