Peter Gabriel Announces 'So' Tour

Stereogum

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Peter Gabriel's 'So,' Gabriel will head out on a tour where 'So' songs are the main focus. His website suggests that he'll play the songs "back to front" -- so "In Your Eyes" first -- but I suppose we'll see what really goes down. Scope the currently announced tour dates below.

Changed my mind. Whatever R Saenz said about Peter Gabriel is probably spot on.

Man what is it with this English faireys?

Londonistan, hmm?

Faux Islamic republic of England?

Poofters.

In 2012, Gabriel condemned the use of his music by American talk radio personality Rush Limbaugh during a controversial segment in which Limbaugh vilified Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke. A statement on behalf of Gabriel read: "Peter was appalled to learn that his music was linked to Rush Limbaugh's extraordinary attack on Sandra Fluke. It is obvious from anyone that knows Peter's work that he would never approve such a use. He has asked his representatives to make sure his music is withdrawn and especially from these unfair, aggressive and ignorant comments

 

Limbaugh wasn't vilifying this lump of crap he was pointing out the obvious. I agree with him.

So Gabriel is a panty-waist leftist, is he? Sorry to hear that.

I just neutered my cat, now he's a liberal Labor advocate.

Sucks to be you.

DJG,

um, freedom of speech? hmm?    look droogie,

Take whatever R Saenz said with a grain of salt. Different strokes for different folks.

I am a musician and we are some opinionated mf's. We make fun of each other and talk smack. Whoopie.

Some would say my playing sucks (because of the genre(s), that's ok.  I have a good time.

There are a lot of overrated guitarists/singers/bands out there imo. Most of them have lots of fans.

But it's lowest common denominator, generic music for the masses. And very blah and boring.

My personal biggest offenders include: Nickleback, Three Days Grace, Hinder, and the rest of the current boo-hoo brigade. Country music has morphed into leftover 70's lame generic pop/rock (with a really bad drawl).

The pop-tart club still has the bottom of the barrel garbage: bieber, clarkson, rihanna etc.

 

I prefer music with some teeth.

But that's just me, I guess.

It's one mans opinion.

I love Peter Gabriel!  R. Saenz, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

 

I saw Peter Gabriel for the first time in 1989 at The Human Rights Now concert in LA. It was an amazing show!

 

Please add Phoenix to your tour!  If not, I will try to get to Vegas.
