Tickets for the show, which takes place this December, go on sale from Fri 27 Jun
Peter Gabriel is to perform his iconic album So in its entirety at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena.
The show, set to take place on Thu 4 Dec, is part of Gabriel’s ‘Back to Front’ tour, and will feature the original So live band: bassist Tony Levin, guitarist David Rhodes, keyboardist David Sancious and drummer Manu Katche.
The night will span Gabriel’s career, described by him as 'like a meal'. He explained: 'The starter will be an acoustic bit, almost like we would be in rehearsal mode. From that acoustic starter we move on to the savoury dish, which is electric or more electronic stuff. If you survive that, then you get your dessert, which is the complete and uninterrupted album of So, in the order in which it was originally intended.'
As well as celebrating his successful career in music, Gabriel will also be playing some brand new material live for the first time.
Tickets go on sale from Fri 27 Jun – for full tour details plus ticketing links, see listings below.
