Following a critically acclaimed New Blood tour in 2011 that reignited Peter Gabriel fans across the world by reimagining his best known songs through stunning orchestral arrangements, Gabriel announced today his return to U.S. stages to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his groundbreaking, iconic album So.
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 86 “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.
