Peter Gabriel Charts First American Concert Tour in 10 Years
Peter Gabriel, the pop rock icon, will embark on his first tour of the U.S. in almost 10 years. The trek has been name “Growing Up Live.” Some dates have been pushed back awhile others have been eliminated.
Now the tour will be starting in Chicago, and there will be two shows instead of one at United Center. This means the tour will be launching a week later than it had been scheduled originally and eliminates dates for Columbus and Atlanta, while the shows in Washington D.C. and Cleveland will be rescheduled. The publicists say the reason for the delay is needing more time for organizing the complicated production requirements of the show.
The tour was announced by Gabriel in New York at Supper Club, where he was performing three of his new songs off of “Up,” his newly released album. It’s the first album for Gabriel in 11 years.
Peter Gabriel got his start as the lead singer of Genesis, the art rock group. He’s also had success as a solo artist with hit singles like “Sledgehammer.” Gabriel has also branched out and experimented with world music, and worked on multimedia projects as well as soundtracks, including the soundtrack for “The Last Temptation of Christ” by Martin Scorsese.
Gabriel for his new tour will be using his same design team that work on “Secret World Live,” his 1993 outing.
