    That's a fantastic set. Peter Gabriel has always been an incredible performer, but nothing compares to the days when he was just starting as a solo performer. Seeing him in clubs was mesmerizing. He became each character and used every part of his body to convey lyrical meaning. He peered into the audience and made one imagine that he was acknowledging each soul.

    I saw him at the (now tragically defunct) Bottom Line in New York and, though I have seen him in theatres and arenas since, its never been the same.

    Oh yes, I hope he will hit Miami. I have yet to see him in person, but love watching his vids from past tours. Any chance Paula Cole will join him again? Killer performer and song writer, oh I hope he comes to S. Fla.

    Finally upgraded So to CD, but anyone know why they moved "In Your Eyes" out of sequence to be the last song on the disc? And to confound matters more (for someone who pays attention to that stuff), they left the instrument credits in the original running order, so any references to track 6 means "In Your Eyes", not "Mercy Street"!

    Supposedly that was the original intended sequence, but he changed it because of the LP format. I guess he wanted In Your Eyes to start at the beginning of side 2 ...maybe it sounds better?? I dont know. I've never heard the vinyl. As for the credits...that's just a stupid mistake.

    Default Peter Gabriel Goes Orchestral For Covers Album

    from billboard.com:

    [i]Peter Gabriel eschews traditional rock'n'roll instrumentation on his new album, "Scratch My Back," due Feb. 15 from Virgin. The project sports orchestral covers of material originally recorded by David Bowie, Paul Simon, Neil Young, Radiohead and Arcade Fire, among others.

    All of the artists whose songs Gabriel covers on "Scratch My Back" will return the favor by reworking his songs on a future album, dubbed "I'll Scratch Yours."

    "I explored a few different ideas for arrangements using only homemade instruments [and] choral groups," Gabriel says on his Web site (PeterGabriel.com). "But in the meantime, was introduced to a wonderful arranger, John Metcalfe, who was doing some great work with Real World. I really liked his scores, which seemed original, soulful and fresh. When we met, I felt we also had enough of an overlap of taste around such composers as Steve Reich, Arvo Part, Stravinsky etc. I asked John to keep the arrangements simple, stark but always emotional, so the songs could be really heard and felt."

    Gabriel will perform selections from "Scratch My Back" with an orchestra at four March shows: March 22 in Paris (Palais Omnisports), March 25 in Berlin (O2 World) and March 27-28 in London (The O2). Special packages with soundcheck access are available from Gabriel's Web site.

    "Scratch My Back" is Gabriel's first studio album since 2002's "Up," which peaked at No. 9 on The Billboard 200.

    Here is the track list for "Scratch My Back":

    "Heroes" (David Bowie)

    "The Boy in the Bubble" (Paul Simon)

    "Mirrorball" (Elbow)

    "Flume" (Bon Iver)

    "Listening Wind" (Talking Heads)

    "The Power of the Heart" (Lou Reed)

    "My Body Is a Cage" (The Arcade Fire)

    "The Book of Love" (The Magnetic Fields)

    "I Think It's Going To Rain Today" (Randy Newman)

    "Apres Moi" (Regina Spektor)

    "Philadelphia" (Neil Young)

    "Street Spirit" (Radiohead)


    Gabriel is not someone I'd expect to do covers - then again, I wouldn't have expected Rush, either. I do like the Scratch My Back I'll Scratch Yours title concept, though!

    Got my tickets to see Gabriel on June 20 at the United Center!

    My concert bucket list goes as follows:

    1) Foo Fighters
    2) Extreme
    3) Peter Gabriel

    You can imagine how wonderful it is to finally be able to see this guy live

    I keep waffling on seeing him locally. Venue is five minutes away. But this orchestra thing he's doing...no guitars, no drums...it's making me gunshy a bit. Pete's stuff is already ethereal enough, IMO...that said, I'm sure it'd be epic.

    Should just bite the bullet and go. Expensive VIP packages.

    I totally agree. Today I am listening to a 1979 boot of him in concert with Phil Collins on drums. GREAT show.

    This might be cool to see after I'd seen him with a traditional guitar-bass-drums-KB's band. Just never made the time. They ran one of his concerts on The Disney Channel about 17 years ago (when you could see that kind of choice programming on that channel) called "Secret World" which was pretty damned cool. That's the kind of show I'd like to check out first before this orchestral thing.

    I've got that show on DVD. It's pretty awesome.

    I'd prefer a regular guitar/drums show myself, yes.

    I've been cranking this one up a lot lately ...

    "If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you"

    "Be careful what you wish for because you just might lose what you already have"
