Currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of his landmark multi-platinum album So, Peter Gabriel brings his Back To Front show to Manchester Arena.
Tickets for the Friday 25 October concert are on sale now, priced from £30.00 - £45.00.
The Back To Front performance will feature the original live band who toured So with him over 25 years ago. Fans can expect a show which spans Gabriel's illustrious career including the iconic album performed in its entirety.
The Back To Front tour, which began in the US earlier this year amassing stunning reviews along the way, sees Gabriel reunited with musicians who backed his live touring work: 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 - the song immortalised by John Cusack in the film Say Anything.
Describing the time on his website, Gabriel notes: "I think when we played the album back we knew it was good. It wasn't like I was an obscure artist; I'd had hits with Shock The Monkey, Games Without Frontiers and Solsbury Hill but after each of them I'd purposefully retreated partially back into the shadows. With So this was the end of the idea of me being a sort of cult artist at the fringes of the mainstream, especially in America. There wasn't an option to go and hide in the shadows anymore."
