Location: The SSE Hydro
Former Genesis front-man Peter Gabriel is coming to Glasgow to mark his 25th anniversary of his landmark album ‘So’. He will play the Glasgow Hydro in late October 20103.
Currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of his landmark multi-platinum album ‘So’, Peter Gabriel is set to bring the tour entitled, ‘Back To Front,’ to the UK in October 2013.
The tour will see Gabriel reunited with the musicians who toured ‘So’ with him over 25 years ago and who also backed most of his live solo work incluiding bass wizard Tony Levin, guitarist David Rhodes, keyboardist David Sancious and drummer Manu Katche.
When Peter started work on this, his fifth album, in February 1985 in an old farmhouse called Ashcombe near Bath he had no idea of the explosive and enduring impact this album would have. Released in 1986, ‘So’ became one of the defining albums of the era, landing multitudes of awards, millions of sales and huge hits such as ‘Sledgehammer,’ ‘ Don’t Give Up’ with Kate Bush, ‘Say Anything,’ and ‘In Your Eyes’.
‘So’ 25th anniversary edition is the opportunity to explore how the album was made, the stories behind the songs, the evolution of each track and the outstanding live performance of the ‘So’ tour.
